Called to Adventure
"Only the desperate and the brave", is the proud motto of Falconís Hollow. Few choose to live a life on the outskirts of Darkmoon, whose dim, mist-laden forests are prowled by feral beasts, reeking trolls, and the restless souls of the dead. Fewer still possess the steely will to venture into the haunted ruins of the once-great dwarven kingdom. A place known locally as The Crucible. For those brave enough to claim them, treasures surpassing the dreams of princes and poets rest beneath the rocky slopes of Droskarís Crag, but so too does an ancient evil. Sibilant whispers ride the vale winds after nightfall, jumbled promises of doom, blasphemy, and rot hissed from the darkness beneath the mountain. From deep below the earth come soul-shredding abominations, and as these unspeakable horrors rise, the lesser denizens of these dwarven ruins are forced to the surface.

The ramshackle town of Falconís Hollow rests perilously close to the infamous Darkmoon Vale. The jagged shadow of nearby mountains casts a shroud of gloom on the desperate souls who call this place home. Many are drawn here to make their fortune cutting a swath of darkwood lumber through the lush forests of the vale. Others journey to these remote fringes to start over, piecing together their shattered lives on the edge of an untouched wilderness far from the things of man. Persecuted zealots and outcasts flock to Falconís Hollow. Here,  these fanatics practice their strange and often deviant rites unfettered by the mores of civilization. Still others are lured to Falconís Hollow by the promise of great adventure. Peril and splendor await within the accursed halls of dwarven kings of old, whose glorious civilization long ago shattered and crumbled to dust.

Our heros now begin a second adventure, where-in they seek to find out who was responsible for the terrible pestilence unleashed purposefully on the town.  They will venture back to The Crucible and try to discover more of its secrets.  This is where we pick up the story in Chapter X.
