A supernatural darkness has crept over the kingdom, consuming small towns and villages. The darkness seems to warp those within it, distorting them into horrible creatures. You’ve been tasked to find the origin of this affliction, which seems to be coming from the depths of the forest and to stop it.
Before you leave, a cleric approaches and hands you a small artifact. He explains that the artifact releases an aura of light similar to daylight and that you should never leave it’s presence as he postulates that leaving the light most likely will result in you being changed, like so many others.
You take the trade road and final reach the edge of the darkness, here the trees are rotted and dying, gnarled roots permeate the grounds and an ever present gloom pervades the air, blocking out the sky.
You continue further into the forest making sure to always stay within the safety and comfort of the artifacts light, when you finally reach a small oozing stream, it’s riverbed containing broken bones and before you, your first challenge.
The king’s men used to keep guard in this old toll station, taking tolls to help maintain the roads and keep them safe. You’ll need to raise the boom gate to continue further into the forest however when you enter the toll station you noticed a disheveled man is scribbling notes on a book and repeating garbled words to himself, his eyes but empty sockets. He ignores you.
If you try and raise the boom gate, he screams out and tries to stop you but his words make no sense. The boom gate’s rusty chain grinds as the gate starts to rise and takes five rounds to be fully raised. During this time horrific creatures emerge from the nearby forest and assault the toll station.
What’s Happening? Through a catastrophe the realm of shadows is bleeding into the material realm, it’s origin being a temple deep within the woods.

LUKE: The founder of Seafoot Games, Luke's been making maps and RPG games since he was a child, and spent over a decade creating his own game systems from scratch to play with his brothers. That was before he discovered other TTRPGs existed. Now, he paints the realistic grimdark fantasy battlemaps we're known for, helps write adventures as needed, and spends his free time printing and painting 3D minis, as well as working on his forever in-development TTRPG system.
BEB: Luke's wife, Beb's been writing, painting, and graphically designing things her whole life. She published her first book when she was 20, alongside a handful of sci-fi short stories, and was responsible for writing almost all of our adventures until mid 2022 when Steve joined the team. Now she mostly creates the outlines for the adventurer's guides with Luke, graphically designs documents, handles the bookkeeping (or as she likes to call it, bureaucrat wrangling), and manages the website—but she is slowly delegating these responsibilities, so she can focus on raising her and Luke's beautiful son.
