The quiet, unassuming town of Echoes End is a place of curious fascination, drawing travellers from far and wide with its eerie reputation. It is rumoured that no one in Echoes End will speak a single word, not even to each other. No one knew why, but the silence was oppressive and unsettling.
The streets are tidy and well maintained, and the windows of the houses usually clean. As the people move about their business with silent determination, not a single sound could be heard, not even the chirping of crickets.
