Long Journeys, Short Stories
The Missing Caravan
When the team arrives to Lakeburgh from Whitekeep after a two-day trip, they find out that the caravan that left Whitekeep the day before they left did not arrive. The case is quite interesting because there was no fork on the road leading here, nor did the team meet the caravan.
After several days of a long, boring and tiring journey, the team arrives to Stormvalley Pass. However, the road is impassable, destroyed by something: an earthquake, bad weather, angry giants, or a crazy wizard – but that seems to be irrelevant at this point . The team must cut their way through the wilderness because they can’t afford a two-week detour. They are under time pressure now, because they have to get to their destination a lot sooner.
Silence is Golden?
The team arrives to the Silent Owl Inn in the middle of the Amber Forest. Smoke billows from the chimney, a cow grazes peacefully next to the inn, fire crackles in the fireplace inside, fresh-cut flowers blossom in vases atop the set tables, but there is no one in the inn. Not a living creature. There are also no corpses, no bloodstains, nor traces of any fight. The staff and guests simply vanished.
