timothy updated SQ-668:
-----------------------

    Description: 
As we head to Haiti, I'm getting considerable backlash about Demon's Castle from Haitian Americans.  Demons are very real in their culture, as they are for evangelical Americans as well.

Simple suggestion ... change the name to "Wizard's Castle" and this text:

"You have been captured by an evil demon!  If you don't escape, you will never see your friends again! You are my slave!  Ha ha ha!"

"You have been captured by a wizard!  You must find a way to escape!"
