About the adventure

Outside Briar Glen lies a dangerous swamp, and deep within it runs the Weeping River. Those who venture too far into the swampland near the river are overcome with grief and cry until their tears turn to blood. And if they're lucky, they die. Lately, however, women in town disappear into the swamp near the Weeping River at night... and return in the morning, entranced but unscathed. Their families want to know why they return at sunrise with no memories of the previous night. Not all is as it seems in the swamp beyond Briar Glen. Go there, and find the truth. And remember: Don't Let The Boo-Hag Ride You! ~~~ We will use Roll20, (for its VTT) D&DBeyond (for its character sheets/content sharing) and Discord (for voice chatting.) Battlemaps, ambient music and dynamic lighting will be provided for immersive gameplay. LGBTQ+ and beginner friendly! ~~~ This adventure was written by Jessica Ross for the Uncaged collection
