Notes

A dozen years ago, a cavernous tunnel was found not far from Westburn. The tunnel pierces the mountains and leads all the way to the Sea of Dust. Its been identified as the Passage of Slerotin and since its rediscovery, traders and adventurers have arrived in the area in droves. A small town was built near the sight to handle this traffic, the town is called Dark Gate.

Ten miles from Dark Gate is a small village of thrity-eight inhabitants. All thrity-eight have disappeared with no explanation. The Grosspokesman of Westburn is under pressure from the capital, Loftwick, to discover what has happened.
