Swallow this…

Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement.

A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey and black pepper.

What they didn’t realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences.

Stricken by fear after its completion, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle.

Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us…
