|“||Today I found something. A fallen structure that transports the mind to sanitariums and institutions. But it brings me no ease, but rather I feel entrapped. Beds and cabinets are scattered about whatever this place might be. Even though it is filled with hiding places, I’ll avoid it.||„|

There is insanity, and then there are minds that are so severely distorted that they cease being humans. Instead they end up a feral, living, unwanted thing. These people must be “stored” somewhere, and that’s where the Crotus Prenn Asylum plays a crucial role. Established in 1857, Crotus Prenn was originally a hospital, but as the need of storage grew, it was turned into an insane asylum. Crotus Prenn is a place riddled with tall tales that aren’t even close to the reality that takes place within its walls. It was never the biggest asylum, but the one that held the most violent and warped minds the country had ever met.
But it was not the residents that etched the name Crotus Prenn into the history books. Instead it was the mass suicide where over fifty patients were found dead in their beds. The building was abandoned shortly after that. Investigators had no answers, and the town’s folk became more and more worried as rumors talked about a woman still living inside the asylum. Finally, one night, smoke rose from the woods as Crotus Prenn had been set ablaze. The bystanders did nothing. They just let it burn.
