In this adventure, the player characters find themselves traveling along the foothills north of the Shadow Peaks, heading to the isolated hamlet of Strangehaven. Nestled among the evergreens along the North-Western edge of the Hanging Woods, Strangehaven is a vital source of lumber and hard apple cider to Dhernas and the surrounding baronies.
Mountain tributaries flow from the Shadow Peaks through the Hanging Woods, ending at the village of Strangehaven. Recently, some sort of necrotic alchemical toxin has polluted the water. When the PCs arrive, they discover that the toxin has been warping the minds of the villagers, while also corrupting the local flora and fauna. The PCs are called upon to investigate the increasingly volatile townsfolk and root out the origin of what plagues Strangehaven’s citizens.
