The growing trade town of Dulwich looms over the Great Salt Mire in the Duchy of Ashlar. A veritable torrent of lumber from the nearby forest enriches its citizens’ coffers and emboldens the growing merchant class. Dulwich’s lord, Wido Gall, resists the merchants’ efforts to topple his rule while coveting the nearby village of Longbridge. Both sides seek support from the followers of Conn, hoping to sway the newly appointed and young high priestess. Meanwhile, adventurers flock to the town’s inns and taverns, preparing their own expeditions into the ruins hidden in the nearby Forest of Gray Spires.

Town Backdrop: Wolfsbane Hollow Now Available!
Shielded to the north by the lofty peaks of the Vurdfell Spine and protected from the hordelands of the east by the Greatshadow Gorge, the town of Wolfsbane Hollow has persisted in relative isolation for hundreds of years. Seemingly a simple border town, a dark shadow hangs over this hard, rough settlement. For here, the rule of law is tenuous at best, and the mayor is but a figurehead. The true power of Wolfsbane Hollow is the shadowy thieves’ guild and their monstrous, bestial guild master who lurks in his lair carved from the fallen bones of an ancient empire.

“this is one of the most user-friendly books I’ve ever read. I had simply NO issue running this town right from the pages. The place is great, full of details and Raging Swan Press’ mastermind Creighton Broadhurst once again proves why he has his stellar reputation – this book managed to captivate me…”
