In the year 1757, Captain Jacque Killen, a notorious pirate and his ruthless crew descended upon the unsuspecting town. Under the cover of darkness they raided homes, businesses stealing every last ounce of gold. As they made their escape, the captain's greed got the better of him. He decided to bury the gold on a nearby, secluded cave, intending to return later to retrieve it at his leisure.

However, fate had other plans. As Captain Killen sailed away, a violent storm engulfed his ship. The vessel was battered by monstrous waves, and as the thunder roared and the wind howled, the ship was torn apart, sinking into the abyss with all hands lost. The treasure, buried and forgotten, remained hidden on the land.

In the years that followed, strange occurrences began to plague the town now known as Killen. On foggy nights, townsfolk reported seeing the ghostly apparition of a ship, its spectral sails billowing in an ethereal wind. They heard the haunting cries of Captain Killen, calling out, luring the curious and the brave towards the water.

It is said that Captain Killen's restless spirit wanders the seas, forever cursed to search for his lost treasure. His ghostly ship appears to those who dare to seek the missing gold, tempting them with the promise of untold wealth. But once aboard, the townsfolk are never seen again, their fates sealed by the curse of Captain Killen.

Generations have passed, but the legend endures. The ghost ship of Captain Killen remains a chilling reminder of the pirate's greed and the town's dark history. To this day, the townsfolk of Killen live in the shadow of the curse, wary of the misty nights when the ghost ship might appear, luring the unwary into its spectral clutches, forever bound to the sea in search of the cursed treasure. Now you too are hearing the ghostly call to join the search.
