Caldecott Estate, the ancestral home of the 32nd Earl of Rothshire, is besieged. The undead are traipsing and crawling across overgrown lawns, intent on ripping the very flesh from the Earl’s body.

But many of them will not make it that far as the 32nd Earl has two things in their way: A prised Purdey shotgun and an accomplice named, Saffy. Saffy is a young and simple girl from the local village. She is quick of foot at setting traps, and dispatching the undead to the afterlife. She is endlessly coming up with cunning and disturbing methods to rid the estate of disease.

The bizarre and gruesome details are narrated in a journal by a very Aristocratic British gent. Get a first hand look on how the Victorian upper class deal with stumbling trespassers and see how one draws inspiration from a teenage girl born to kill.

In the spring of 1899, The Windsor Times began printing shocking excerpts from the Earl of Rothshire’s journal. The Earl described hellish events that took place on his vast estate, Caldecott Manor, and the surrounding villages in the Cotswolds. The graphic nature of these incidents was captured not only in words but also by a number of detailed sketches. These events ran from early Spring of 1896 through late Autumn of the same year. The Windsor Times’s slow-drip release of the excerpts seized the attention of the nation’s readers and stirred England to the point of distraction.

By the time the second excerpt appeared, high-ranking officials had already been summoned to be held to account. The frenzy continued for weeks, peaking when Queen Victoria called upon the Prime Minister, The Marquis of Salisbury, to make a personal emergency visit to the Caldecott estate and verify the incidents. But even after this royal intervention, no satisfactory response was forthcoming from Downing Street—which only added to the growing hysteria.

A few months after the excerpts were printed, The Windsor Times released yet more astonishing news. The Earl’s Journal had disappeared, and they were no longer in a position to print further excerpts. Although enormous public pressure was laid at the doors of both The Windsor Times and Caldecott at that period, the legal system itself remained strangely hushed.

Of all the oddities surrounding the Caldecott Chronicles, one of the most peculiar came to light only this week. The great, great granddaughter of the Earl, Ms. Saffron Radclyffe-Jones, contacted The Windsor Times stating that she is in possession of the original journal, and is now executing the 32nd Earl's will by releasing it—exactly one hundred years to the day after his death in 1911.

With full permission from the Earl of Rothshire’s estate, The Windsor Times will reprint these excerpts which will shine a light on the gruesome events at Caldecott—more commonly referred to as:

The Killing Chronicles.

Caldecott Manor

April 4th, 1896

My Dear Albert,

I pray that this finds you well, and brings you some modicum of joy. Lord knows it’s been hard of late. The lines have been down for over two weeks now, and I’ve attempted several trips to reach you, to no avail. I am livid there is no outside news, and it saddens me that I have received no support whatsoever.

Nothing is normal, and I find myself in a state of perpetual flux. Two days ago I sent one of the stable lads on the only fit horse to bring news, but as yet he has not
