Provenance is a free interactive fiction novel with a horror theme. You are standing at the front gate of a picturesque, rural Victorian home. An intricate brick walkway meanders north and west from here across the front lawn toward the modest house on a hill.
The dominant feature here is the spacious orchard to the west which sprawls over much of the front half of the acreage. A massive maple tree to the northwest commands attention with its impressive stature.
In the distance, at the front of the house, you can see an arched cobblestone foot bridge.
A white picket fence that surrounds the estate prevents you from venturing south and helps to keep intruders and nuisance wildlife out. A large topiary is visible in the distance to the northeast.
