Winter in Mekellut
Oh, the weather outside is frightful....
"Blasted wizards, messing with thing they don't know 'nuf about. That's why the world's the way, it is."
That's what your pa always said when whenever you asked him about the past. The Scourging happened long before you were born. Some say the gods cursed humanity for their hubris, others that the kings of old tampered with forces beyond their control. Either way, the result is the same. A burnt orange sky and the Blight; the creeping plague of rot and decay that affects every living thing. During the last days of the Rule of Kings, your parish 's lord, the local cleric, and a strange wandering witch sealed your village away from the Blight. This cost Sir Dawid his life but some of his people could live on.
The next decades were harsh on Mekellut. The village dwindled down to around fifty residents but you have fared better than most. Until this year. The coldest winter anyone can remember has arrived. A shortage of supplies has everyone afraid and paranoid of worse to come. Lawgiver Yagil Argov (the elderly cleric) agrees with Remona Elath (the wandering witch who has found a home for herself in Mekellut) - something unnatural is beyond this weather. Can you find out the causes of this impending blizzard before you freeze to death in the cold of the night?
