Jack is continuing his journey in a new and savage land. His travels will take him to a local pub where the inhabitants seem friendly enough until Jack decides that he wants to continue his journey through what the locals call the “Empty Village”. Everyone warns Jack that the village is haunted and the evil surrounding it has negatively affected everyone in the surrounding villages.
Undeterred, Jack makes his way to the Empty Village only to find that it is not as empty as he thought.
