Come ride your broom, and be a part of the Nederland Witches Ball, on the night of October 28. Shortly after being poisoned to death by his wife, Governor Mortimer Leech was recruited by the Dark Lord himself to join the house band upon his ship, The Widow's Bane. The crew exclusively consisted of men fallen at the hands of their beloveds, and it was there that Leech was introduced to the rest of the band.
The Widow's Bane sailed unhindered for three hundred years, laying to waste every ship that crossed its path while entertaining every pub in every port town in which it dropped anchor. That is, until they had the great misfortune of crossing paths with St. Gabriel and his ship, The Pale Horse. It was off the coast of Alaska where Gabe laid into The Widow’s Bane with a vengeance. The Devil retreated into an abyss beneath the Bering Sea, while the house band was left to row ashore in a life raft, taking nothing from that sinking ship but her name. [Organizer's description]
