The Dread Crypt of Skogenby
Horror stalks the ill-fated village of Skogenby. Just a few days past, some youths clearing a new field for planting managed to move a stubborn boulder only to reveal an ancient rune-covered dolmen that framed a narrow tunnel into the earth. Jora, the bravest among them, dared to crawl through the narrow passage and disappeared down the tunnel, only to return a short time later. From the far side of the narrow passage she excitedly told her friends a tale of moldering crypts rich in grave goods, tossing out a set of fat, heavy silver arm rings as proof. But as she was crawling from the tunnel, she was abruptly pulled back into the crypt with a blood curdling scream.
Jora's friends fled as fast as their legs would carry them. But horror followed them, for now some dread thing haunts the village at night, slaying but leaving no marks save a look of terror.
The people of Skogenby are desperate. Perhaps you can help them appease the ancient evil that stalks them. Or perhaps the lure of treasure is stronger. Whatever your goal, the Dread Crypt of Skogenby awaits.
A New Scenario!
Thor and I have decided to include another adventure with Torchbearer. The book itself contains a scenario called Under the House of the Three Squires. It's a challenging little scenario that Thor put together to test your mettle.
The Dread Crypt of Skogenby is shorter piece, designed to show off some of the elements of the game not featured in Under the House of the Three Squires.
All backers of the Torchbearer project will receive a PDF copy of Dread Crypt this summer (it probably won't be ready before we go to press). It's our small way of saying thanks for your continued support!
Thank you again. We'll have more news soon!
