Call of the Necromancer: An Expert Adventure for Shadow of the Demon Lord
An unexplained series of mishaps and accidents have beset the good people of Bricksburg. Missing children and livestock, spoiled milk swirled with blood, stillborn calves, and other calamities have dogged the community for weeks, and the trouble seems to be getting worse. Some believe the town has been cursed, attracted malevolent spirits, or has somehow angered the small gods of the nearby hills. No one knows for certain and panic has started to tighten its grip on the hearts and minds of the townspeople. Something must be done, but no one has the courage to confront the evil lurking in their midst.

He Sees You When You’re Sleeping: An Expert Adventure for Shadow of the Demon Lord
The Demon Lord’s shadow looms over Urth, growing stronger each passing day with every terrible deed and sacrifice that is performed in his name. As winter falls across the lands, old legends stirred by the Shadow come to life once more. Ancient evils that few remember rise again to resume their nocturnal wanderings, spreading darkness, suffering, and death wherever they roam.
Written for a group of expert characters, He Sees You While You’re Sleeping is set in the small village of Hund, where a terrible monster threatens those among them who are the most vulnerable: their children. A fledgling cult has taken root in an abandoned asylum just outside the settlement, engaging in vile and dark magic to harness the essence of a horrific demon called the Krampus: a malevolent entity infamous for hunting, terrorizing, and killing children all across Rûl.
The group adventure ends when the group defeats the Krampus or at the toll of midnight on Krampusnacht, which is the beginning of the winter solstice.
