The Call of the Old Ones Beckons
An old church in a portion of the former Town of Milwaukee which would later become Glendale was known locally as "The Church of Starry Wisdom." It's unknown to whom the church actually prayed, though it was said to contain an ancient artifact in its dark, windowless steeple. The members of the church all disappeared without a trace, along with the artifact, late in the 19th Century. The church lay empty and rotting for decades. When finally it was decided the blackened brick building was to be demolished, inspectors were horrified to find broken and disfigured skeletons strewn about the dark. Closer inspection showed only half of the skeletons were human, while the others, apparently bipedal but with an entirely alien skeletal structure, were officially labeled "unknown origin." The church was bulldozed and buried over, with the shadow from this haunted place all but forgotten from local legend.
