Prologue

Excerpt from the Raleigh Gazette, first published October 20th, 1953

SIGNS FROM THE SKY

Last night, several members of the community have reported a strange sight in the sky. They have described the sight as 'like a shooting star but a bit more controlled than a normal shooting star'. The 'star' crashed in the forests most commonly used by the locals. The local police force has yet to investigate but so far there hasn't been anything in regards to potential fires or dangers to the homes near the forest. If anything arises, you can bet the Raleigh Gazette will cover it!
