Ghosts of the Night
Most of the rumors that have made "Baron Palace" beta real horror about hearing voices for the transfer of the basis of the palace between the Hjrath different in the middle of the night, the lights that light up suddenly in the back yard of the palace and die suddenly as well, and of the degree of ratification of the population adjacent to the Palace so great, Faisrah doorman of a building in front of the palace that the ghosts do not appear in the palace but at night, which do not allow for one to remain inside the palace at any cost.

This remains an open question in both heard about the Baron Palace and rumors that spread around it. Why is this building in particular? Maybe life was unfortunate Baron is one of the most important reasons which have increased the circulating stories of lives that people a hundred years.
He was born Baron "Empain" lameness is apparent in his feet as well as being patients with epilepsy, and were often beset by seizures is located in the garden of his palace and consulted by the morning and his dog standing next to him to wake up, Valbaron for excessive severity could not one of the servants to approach him but his command , even if it was lying on the ground unconscious.

"Miriam" became paralyzed children after the birth period, because of the packs her father's severe and ugliness sometimes treated in the treatment of her aunt, she had "Miriam," a mental complex, was sitting "when she has seizures," the hours are also some rooms basement below the palace, and after a period dating " Miriam "to her room, which reports improved mood, and says she spoke with a friend comforts her a lot, a story that wove later the myth of" Satanists ".
After the death of Baroness "Helena," she had heard the voices of the "sister" Baron at times with the Baron himself in "the basement of the palace," and sometimes in an interview with quiet to some extent with the "Miriam," the daughter of Baron in a room at the entrance to the basement, but the "Miriam" after a period found dumped on her face and dead - without a known cause - in a well leading to the elevator breakfast upstairs, which was dealing with the Baron of his food.
Which confirmed the rumors of life and entrenched in the minds of the people that, after the death of Baron himself, turned mirrors bound to the bottom of the walls of the room pink palace to the color red, which detects most of the visitors of the palace intruders as blood.
When Much of the palace guards - who leaves most places shortly after the service - why there was blood chamber Rosary of the bats that have been taken from the palace-based, insists many people that the bat does not collide with walls, which makes the argument that the blood of the Chamber of the Rosary appeared after that refreshed by the spirit of the Baroness, "Helena" and the daughter of Baron "Miriam" after the death of Baron, which cause severe suffering for the whole family.
