When villagers start disappearing and turn up horribly mutated days later, fear takes a grip of Sestone. What sinister forces are at work? And to what end?

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Just started fresh as new DM and with a group of players that have never played before. This packet was perfect for us, it allowed me as a DM to follow a straighter path but gave a lot of wiggle room to improvise certain encounters or moments. If you are new to running a game with friends I couldn’t recommend this any more, or if you are experienced this book offers new locations and lore that you can easily fit into your current campaign as a side mission.

    Will definitly look at their other products, kickstarts, and the sequel to this story once my friends finish this!
