Miles away from the desolate town of Grave Stone, somewhere north of the Shadow Mountains, there is a castle that stands alone in the desert. The castle is known as Grimwell Manor, belonging to a wealthy miner who most know as Tex. Many discount the story of how Tex used his wealth to build a grand castle in nowhere, while others have searched for the mysterious structure, rumored to even have electricity generated from a spring and water wheel within the maze-like tunnels below.
Grimwell Manor was built sometime during the gold rush in the fashion of a Spanish villa. Indians from the nearby valley constructed the opulent manor; brick by brick, as Tex decorated the interior with furnishings from England and Spain, sparing no expense.
As Tex's sanity was diminishing day by day, he continued to add rooms and passages to his castle, resulting in doors and hallways that led to nowhere. There is even an old tale of how Tex bricked up a few of his double-crossing friends within a secret room, and that their echoing yells can still be heard haunting the manor.
Years have past, and not many people still left in Grave Stone remember ol' Tex. Some say he retired to the chambers within Grimwell Manor where he died a lonely death, while others believe he continues to haunt Grave Stone. While no one has seen or heard from him in years, torches can sometimes be seen burning within the valley north of the Shadow Mountains, along with the glow of an eerie green apparition atop the large stuccoed tower of Grimwell Manor.
