The road between your small town and the large city that supplies you with news and necessities has always been dangerous--the woods are deep, dark, and full of danger. But trade must happen, and supplies must be delivered. And most of the time, large mishaps are rare. Most of the time...but not now.
It has been two weeks since anyone has reentered your village. No supplies, no news, and no one knows why. Left with little choice, you and your intrepid party of comrades have answered the Elder's call, and are about to set off down the road, towards the city. May the gods be with you.
