The Forsaken Maze

In Luther Grim, Promo by Luther Grim

The air hangs heavy with a pungent mix of earth and decay. It is a sanctum of dread, crafted meticulously with high walls cloaked in ivy, each shadow more menacing than the last. The labyrinthine paths are littered with the remains of those who lost their way. 

“They say that these walls whisper secrets of the damned, that the very ground thirsts for the caress of the lost and the forsaken. Here, Jackson, I am not just a monster. I am the warden of despair. The whispers you hear are not just the settling of an old house – they are the silent pleas of those who came before you.”

The moonlight barely penetrates the thick canopy above, casting an eerie glow on the macabre scene. 

“You come with your badge and your gun, a symbol of law and order. But you see, Jackson, in my maze, your rules crumble like dust. Because here, the compass of morality spins wildly, and the only law that applies is the one I decree with my claws and fangs. Your authority is an illusion that vanishes in the dense fog of fear. Your weapons are mere toys that cannot protect you from the psychological torment within these walls. You are a pawn in a game where I am the only player with the power to move the pieces.”

The thorny hedges seem to twitch with a life of their own, and amidst the foreboding silence, a distant drip of water echoes like the ticking of a clock counting down to an inevitable end.

“Because you see, Jackson, the walls move at my command. Each dead end is a mouth, ready to swallow hope. The hedges are alive with the echoes of screams, and the ground hungers for another hero to fall. This is a place where the sun never penetrates and the very air you breathe is laced with the stench of defeat.”

The dampness of the night air fills the lungs, mingled with the subtle hint of iron – blood spilled on sacred soil. Shadows dance with the flicker of Luther’s distant lantern, the only light guiding through the oppressive darkness of the maze that is his masterpiece.

“You have tracked criminals, solved puzzles of the human psyche. But how will you fare in a labyrinth with no logic, where the only clue is the sound of your own racing heartbeat? Can you uphold the law when the very ground you tread seeks to devour you? The darkness here is a riddle with no answer, a puzzle box that tightens around you with each step. And I fear that your training has not prepared you for this – for a place where reality is twisted, and your nightmares are the only guide.”

“So come, Jackson. Bring your flashlight, your handcuffs, your false sense of security. Because in the end, it will be just you and me, predator and prey, in a dance as old as time. And when you inevitably stumble, when the walls close in, and the darkness embraces you, remember that in my maze, no one hears you scream… except for me.”
