The Drowned Bride Adventure

Welcome to Stillwater! In this backwater town, nothing ever happens and life continues on. But lately, the local Bwwrak tribe of frog folk have been crossing the borders and edging up to the town. Even worse, some folks report attacks.

Highly unusual and suspicious, this behavior has everyone on edge and wondering what to do. Tensions are high in the local drink.

And so for now, our story continues!

Thank you to INDEX CARD RPG and Sean Dees for creating such a great product.
