Gift From a Dying Man
I thank the gods and the mother of gods for your presence here… I am dying, but before I surrender my soul to Tanil’s mercies, I must tell a tale. I am Eôchaid, of the Vigils of Vesh. In our investigations, we learned of a small covey of hags on the edge of the Hornsaw and the Blood Steppes. We discovered that they had somehow come into possession of a prize that they claimed contained part of the very essence of the foul Hag-queen Mormo… It must be returned to Vesh.
And so begin the adventures of new heroes within the strange and violent Scarred Lands!
