Jack O' Lantern's journey through the Dark Forest

Poor Jack! He may be dead as a doornail but instead of resting in peace, he wanders trapped in an ancient Celtic Halloween world where nothing is what it seems.

Join Jack on his journey as his lantern casts a light on floating druids, a 12-foot monster, and creatures barely human.
