Lilli Amberthaud and Harper Elincourt, the heirs of two rival families in a minor duchy of Dornig, fell in love. Because of the bad blood between their families, they kept their affair secret until Lilli was betrothed to another.
A few days after the announcement, Lilli went missing. After an extensive search, the affair came to light, and Harper was accused of killing her out of anger or jealousy. Though no body was ever found and he staunchly maintained his innocence, Harper was imprisoned for the crime and remains in jail.
However, the PCs have discovered something that may shed new light on Lilli’s disappearance: a children’s book called Beneath the Witchwillow… with a terrible secret hidden within.
This adventure for the 5th Edition of the world’s first RPG is meant for four to six 5th-level characters. Designed by Sarah Madsen, it features cartography by Dyson Logos and cover art by Phil Stone.
