Tales of Hemlock

Every town has its stories and Hemlock is a library.

Trolls graffiti a train under the Punks Bridge. Old dwarves sit in the coffeehouse off of 3rd and Wormwood. A leprechaun gambles away another paycheck hoping this time will be different. Even the crow that sits on the water tower has a glint of mystery behind its eyes.

Over the next twelve months, explore Hemlock through the eyes of its residents. Experience the polished store fronts, the forgotten countryside and the cold street lights that illuminate the town. What may be true for some residents is not true for others, yet Hemlock is encapsulates all the rumors.

The best way to understand any town is by getting to know the people that live in it.
