Introduction: Interrupting the six dry months and six rainy months of a typical year, a freak snowstorm pounds the NE corner of Barsaive heralding the coming of Wendigo.  Even with Skraat, Sleestak, Vicky Snow's Lightfoot, Donner's Rangers and Horror's Bane, the Circle of Skraat feels woefully unprepared to stand against the gathering of horrors in the area and the Five Forsaken of Parlainth.  Skraat begins to decipher the enormous "Great and Secret Show" - a three thousand page poem written in old Theran dactylic hexameter but another appearance by Kult , throws everyone's plans to the wind. The cultists of the Black Goat are on the rise and the cadavermen hordes, immune to the blizzard cold, continue to plague the upper corner of Barsaive.  Additional assistance - is not coming. The snowfall has ground all travel to a halt and the majority of Barsaive's flying ships, adepts and fighting name givers are with the Throal army who, flush from its victory against the Triumph, is pushing south west to link up with the platoons of Travar and the Scorcher army of Kara Fahd, for an all out attack on Vivane & Sky Point. 


And so it is that Skraat, Sleestak, three Legion fireteams and a few dozen novice adepts living in Haven must stand against the cadavermen hordes, the Wendigo, the Beolith Monstrosity,  the Five Forsaken of Parlainth, a nefarious parliament of horrors and ... Nothing. 



As, gradually ...  ever so gradually ...it begins to crescendo.  




Game note: Players will take the on the roles of some of the NPC's and PC's from previous games. There are two open PC slots for players to make brand new PC's if they would rather create someone new instead of taking a character previously created. Also, while Skraat will remain an NPC - someone must take on the role of Sleestak.
