    About the adventure

    In the quiet town of Borgenbury lies the prestigious Aethelwulf Academy, a boarding school with a dark past. Strange occurrences have been happening lately, and whispers of the supernatural have started to spread among the students. As a group of high school students attending Aethelwulf Academy, you find yourselves embroiled in a web of mysteries and secrets that threaten to destroy everything you hold dear. Amidst classes, sports, and extracurricular activities, you must navigate the shadows and uncover the truth behind the strange happenings at Aethelwulf Academy. But be warned: the darkness that surrounds the school is not of this world. Eldritch creatures lurk in the shadows, and malevolent forces seek to corrupt and destroy all that is good. Will you be able to unravel the secrets of Aethelwulf Academy before it's too late? Or will you succumb to the darkness that lies within? The fate of the school and the town itself rests in your hands.
