Synopsis
In years past, the Iron Duke's total destruction of Wasau, including the killing of its children, is remembered year after year, and in the year of 1917, the remembrance date was occasioned by the crashing of Baron von Emmelman's plane and his death. By 1943, life had returned to Wasau, and the descendant of the Iron Duke returned to Wasau to waylay passing travelers and strip them of their wealth, killing without mercy...until the ghost babies and The Heap step into the picture!
