Things just haven't been right since the elderly, slightly deranged pumpkin farmer disappeared. It's now thought he shouldn't have planted his crops so close to the cemetery where ritualistic activities have been occurring. Over the past year the mayhem has spread and claimed even more victims. 
More graves have been dug and the cemetery keeps growing. Some of the farm help have returned, but they're not looking or acting quite right. A strange scarecrow appeared in the dark of night. But is it a scarecrow? Some think it could be the remains of the old pumpkin farmer, or maybe someone's sick joke of a scarecrow made up of decaying human remains. Whatever it is, no one is willing to remove it. 
And yes, the birds... they keep arriving. It started with just a few, but the flock just keeps growing. It seems they are congregating with a dark purpose and their endless squawks are summoning even more of their brethren. Or maybe it's being caused by the rituals performed around the old, crumbling mausoleum. 
Pay a visit and see if you can help try and control the chaos at the farm's edge and the Old Mill Cemetery. Be wary when you stop by, as you never know what might happen.
