Sector E :..
To those who entered they would be greeted with a blood chilling sight which was the yard. Deceptive the name might well be, it was infact not actually a yard in any sense or even remotely connected to what the name might actually imply. For those who have been at blackwing at all, would know the yard was a deceptive name something entirely else was instore for those who braved the cold climate. Yes this would be the beginning of the exploration of one of the remote and labrinth like realms which was from the reaches of the 2nd world war. A dark treacherous part of human history which bordered the connection of the supernatural. This was blackwing, one of the last places to be explored from the era which was long past.
Ok so back to what the yard itself actually was. In a nutshell it was miles and miles of fensed in mountain ranges which budded off miles of miles of tunnels which some where quarries used by the miners which yes you got it where prisoners aswell. Others well where ill fated failed escape attempts. Since the fact is, you can run but your not gonna get anywhere. Either you get lost go back, or just freeze to death The fact is no one really cares what happens to you. So weither you stay or go. its just a matter of how fast you want to die. Or how much you want to live.
If you got into the yard, though you would start at the only way in, Black Wing pass. Which was inbetween two ravenous cliffs which where the north and south bear claw shelfs. Why are they called such you might wonder?.. Its because of the ragged and more forbidding climate they are in. And in the middle of the blizzards which usually plagued the area. They actually looked very much so like bear claws.
Some times though the pass would cave in and is a notorious avalanche zone. Which is partially why the march to get into black wing was one plagued with death. Since the 10 mile march to get to the inhabited part of the yard killed off hundreds of people which could still be found their rotting decrepid snow frozen and snow burnt or wind burnt corpses hanging at random in obvious signs of abandonment. Which was just one of the few things you might see at the enterance. Another would be a broken sign which had a sign of a skull with a raven on it. The crest of blackwing. it once was made magnificently and the cast wrought black iron gates would be ominious. Now though from the many years of the snow. They would be unhinged one of them would be open. Though the sign was rotting and covered in tiny holes from wind burnt elements.
From this though was the tempest of blizzards which was in the No mans land which surrounded exiting the pass. Which was one littered with rabid wolves and wolverines. Even hollows from the souls which exited. But the sickening fact of the hollows could be put in simply not so many words. Was That they looked like how they died. From the fact their bodies preserved by the snow where still alive in many ways. This hindered the hollows from becoming more then a semblance of there former selves. Not hollow nor really a demi hollow. The feinds where stuck in horror and in sickening manners still where as crazed as when they where in the place to begin with. These would not roam far from there dead bodies though still being chained to the bodies they once inhabited. Like a dog on a leash. They where rabid and almost crazed. But oddly enough that was not the only hollowfied things in this realm. Like once in awhile a hollowfied wolf. which usually where primal in there instincts and behavior. But from this area it was more of the abandoned district within blackwing which was something to almost be reveled in its natural but dangerous beauty.
Now though after you exited the alpine and needle barrent dead pines of the once magnificent forest you would begin to see the full extent of the riot which killed off this once great and magestic place which was one of the more prominent secrets of the old era's. Bodies and blood stains litter the ground, the snow itself is dyed red from the slaughter which was from the cannabalistic inhabitances of the one asylum which was there to begin with. This was one of the signs of the last great massicur within these walls. Not to mention, from here could be seen organs and entestines hanging from barb wire fenses. Broken down barricades which where probably ment to hold the ravaged inmates back. Legs even heads which had their brains frozen and cracked open could be found in the area which had followed. This is why it was one of the more dangerous things to see.
But not only this the stench was overwhelming. Being the ripe and sickenly sweet aroma which was that of the dead. Was one which made you want to puke. And retch out your insides for how horrible it was and how it smelled. The Moon in the sky was a pale white illustrious but sinsister. From the scores of bodies which splatter painted the ground like a techno rave gone mad. The broken windows of the enterance of the cavernous exspanse of the main room. Many of the sentry houses which where ment to stop rioters. Would be found with there doors barricaded suht and the frost bitten men where grinning over some unfinished game of some kind . Waiting for something to blow over which obviously never did actually do just that. These where men which where starved out of there homes and some times where mostly dead from the fact they could not get out without diing.
Gruesome the facts may be this was true all in all. But things still got worse, animal bones and skeletons could be found hung on the walls. These where driven to death by the numbers of savage and starving men which usually where just trying to survive. This happened from the food rations which marked the last great hours of this once fearsome place. But there was still more to be had from the horrifying seen as you got closer to the main compound.
Snow men could be found still oddly presurved as if they had some sort of bodily frame which held them together. on closer inspection it could be seen sometimes to have a hand which was frost bitten sticking out. A eye showing or a foot how ever you saw it you got the picture. The Men litterally where turned into snow men while they where alive. Before then being left this way to die and decay like they where nothing. This was near half way into the yard, where you could begin seeing the snow men. But the ones that had no bodies in them still had turned to ice, and where normal people would have used coal and peas and carrots. Teeth and human eyes and a real nose would have been put on the snow men. As a gruesome joke or reminder of the people that once lived there. Horrifyingly more. the heads of men where stewn on barwire. but they even too seemed to be grinning as if to say. "Welcome to hell i hope you enjoy your stay. " It was something which could probably be thought of as something like a night mare.
If you still went in further though from this you could begin to see the signs of molotovs and the mush of bones and bodyies trampled under many feet as prisoners tryed to get inside from a snowstorm. Which ultimately left the bodies like mummified snow corpses never to live again but not to be dead either. Yes this all was gruesome but at the same time. It could have been something that was expected. But there still was more, bodies where tied in odd angles made to stand upright on make shift spears which went through them. Like dolls or puppets. They seemed to follow you or maybe they actually did who really knew? It was something which really sometimes you might go crazy if you wrapped your head around it too much. Probably afew or alot of souls did in the last hours of this place's life before everything turned to nothing but death and madness. Even though this place looked old .and it was it still was mainly and very much so intact. which
Was probably thanks to the negative 40 below zero degree's and among other things the pristine wind and lack of human civilization to otherwise disturb this relic and tomb of many dead. For many times over you might hear laughing of the few souls which had not succumbed to hollowfication yet. But this was rare. as over 400 years many souls had either hollowfied. or where driven mad to the point they really would either gotten drawn to hell or become something worse but what really was unknown. All that really was known of the place in the closest parts of the yard. Was that it was a mess. Bodies hanging from windows. Legs thrown everywhere at odd angles. Litterally the fences where covered with a fresh carpet of Mutalated bodies. and the snow was drenched in blood of those who used to live there. At this point the aroma was sickening to the point that it could make you pass out from the sheer number of bodies which now had been lighing around for afew hundred years which again was something which was horrifying.
But something would change now, as afew people who knows who? Decided to brave the yard and see whats inside. Possibly they might learn what the real purpose of black wing was for? Or maybe they too would be driven mad from the horrors which where within. But first off they would have to find their way through the yard without getting lost in the immense wilderness to figure out the proper way in. Or they might just decide to explore quarries and see where the tunnels may lead? There are many different options for them. Who knows really what they might choose. But one thing is for sure, some things within this ancient place are not for the faint of heart. some things might be imprinted into their nightmares and horror filled dreams till the end of their days. Some things within might be something they never wanted to see. There are many things to be seen and many things that are there to be explored. So come on in lets see what you find ?..
Welcome to black wing.. Mental Asylum.
