About the adventure

Ynn was once a dimension of impeccable beauty and serenity, but those days are long gone. The garden is left to run wild, and strange beings stalk between the hedges. You and your compatriots have stumbled into this lovely, weird, terrifying space between worlds. The question is, will you make it out again, and will you do so unchanged? The Gardens of Ynn is a classic procedurally generated dungeon crawl by Emmy Allen, one that is never the same twice. We'll be playing Cairn, a rules-light OSR game, to explore!
