“All sailors beware, for only one will the Lioness spare”

In the 34th century, vicious creatures walk the earth, and a bloodthirsty monster known as the Lioness rules over the sea.

It’s not common place to find a location that is simply odd throughout and raises a tonne of questions all on its own. However the Winchester Mystery House does exactly what it says on the tin, providing its visitors with quite a bit of confusion as they navigate its hallways.

However this particular story of a haunted location is less about a location becoming haunted and more about how one fascinating woman dealt with the loss of her close family.
