    About the adventure

    The Twisting Festival is a level 0 adventure that will see players partaking in remote town's festival. There will be games, dancing, murder, mutilation, and dark secrets. Surviving will be a matter of luck, determination, and skill. Your refugee caravan has managed to finally get some distance from the war. Running south you have finally entered the remote regions of Rul, where you hope to make a home. Your journey is some ways from complete, but hope is on the horizon. One sign of this hope is the town of Glasmont, a large walled community at the base of a mountain. They have offered your caravan free shelter if you stay for their Twisting Festival. Once you enter the gates will be shut, and no one can leave for three days. Still, after so much time on the road, a bed and hot food for free nights is irresistible for you caravan. You don't know what a Twisting Festival is, but from the attitude of the locals it seems festive.
