A downloadable ritual

There is a long-forgotten well, only known by the plants and stone. It is hand-dug, and deep, and dark. There are echoes of shapes moving through it. The cool damp. Stillness. No one really talks about the well. It sits, alone, but now, you are here, and now you have to reckon with it.

This ritual does not play nice. This ritual demands you address past woes that affect you today. You cannot leave until someone chooses to Go Down the Well.

This is a ritual to be used in your Sleepaway game. I'd love to hear how it goes.
