The citizens of New Orleans are thrilled that the owners of the old Madison Avenue Mansion are hosting the annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball again this year. However, everybody knows that when events are held at the mansion, something always goes wrong. The Madison Avenue Mansion is an infamous manor, built in the mid-1800s, and rumored to be haunted by ill-spirited ghosts. Wedding ceremonies held there end in divorce, travelers that stay there go missing, and even one time during a gala event, an uninvited ninja that tried to rob the guests choked to death after stealing a bite of cake!
Nonetheless, outside of a few mishaps, nothing has ever gone seriously wrong at the annual Mardi Gras masquerade. You are a thrill seeker and want to attend the event. You knew the tickets were limited, so you were first in line to get yours. You’ve picked out the perfect mask and this is where your story begins.
