Necessary Sacrifices: A Novice Adventure for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG
Life on the edges of the Empire offers none of the protections enjoyed by people who live within the bounds of civilization. The roads in this wilderness wind through a countryside overrun with terrible monsters, foul beastmen, and other horrors. Any stand of trees might shelter a band of brigands. The burned-out hulks of farmhouses and abandoned carriages offer testimony to what happens to those who fail to take sufficient precautions when they cross the gloomy countryside. People living on the frontier survive by using whatever is available to them. For some, this means relying on a trusted witch or a few stalwarts with keen eyes and sharp swords. Others might depend on something more sinister to protect themselves.
Necessary Sacrifices draws a group of novice characters into a tangled situation in which nothing is quite what it seems. The choices the characters make while embroiled in numerous dangers, even ones made out of kindness and empathy, could have dire repercussions. The characters complete the adventure when they unmask the true threat and destroy it.
