Located close to the state capital of Montpelier, the town has been a hotbed for the mystic since the secluded valley was originally settled. The current city is built near the sight of the first of the same name.
A group of farmers hoped to shield themselves from the Devil's influence on Earth by using black magic. Thet drove off any outsiders, and those that wouldn't wander off met with a worse fate. They were so blind that they could not see that evil had corrupted them from within. After the pastor stabbed thirty-two people to death, the remainder fled. Cloister laid abandoned for nearly a century. In 1827, another mystic was attracted to the town. Silas Darkhawk built the Mystery Mansion, and until his death in 1894, tall tales of magical events at the house spread across the state.
Following his death, the area was used for a new city also known as Cloister. The old city was gone, and only the mansion remained on the outskirts of the new settlement. The mystic Mark Merlin chose to settle there in 1950, and soon tales of mystery and mysticism started surrounding the town again.
