 +Along time ago, a young couple was picnicing near the woods
 +on the outskirts of town.  They were celebrating the birth
 +of their first child. ​ Unfortunately,​ a crazed moose inhabited that
 +area and attacked them.   The child and husband were
 +unharmed, but the wife was gored to death by the moose.
  
 +After the funeral, the man bought the land where the incident occurred
 +and constructed a large mansion: CHEZ MOOSE. ​ He filled it with
 +the treasures of his family and claimed that his wife's
 +soul was still in the area.  He vowed to remain in the
 +mansion until he had returned her soul to human flesh.
 +He tried to bridge the gap between life and death to reclaim her.
 +Some say he was insane with grief, but others claimed that the madness was
 +in his blood, and his wife's death brought it to the surface.
 +After he entered the house, he never returned, and was declared dead
 +seven years later. ​ Several people have entered the mansion
 +looking for him but none of them have ever returned.
 +There were rumors that he and his wife now haunt the house.
  
 +That would be the end of the story except that the house
 +still stands and is filled with priceless treasures.
 +The house and all its contents are willed to his only descendant.
 +Oh yes, I forgot to tell you, the day the mother was killed,
 +the child was stolen by Gypsies.
 +The Will claims that only the descendant will know
 +how to avoid going crazy and committing suicide
 +while spending a night in the mansion.
 +An obscure hereditary disease, Orkhisnoires sakioannes,
 +is supposed to play some part in this.
  
 +So if your heritage is in doubt, you may be the descendant that
 +can claim the treasure in the mansion.
 +Many people, claiming to be descendants have died trying...
  
 +or at least never returned.
  
 +The terms of the Will say you get to keep any treasure
 +you get to the lawn, but of course you must also get off the premises alive.
 +Because the house is haunted it must be destroyed, and nobody
 +would be crazy enough to try and recover the rest of the treasure.
 +If you do get out, the government has agreed to
 +buy the land and destroy the house.
