About the adventure

Welcome to Darkholme, a mysterious town with a dark and sinister air! Players are townsfolk who wake up and discover that not all is as it seems in this tiny town. They can try and figure out what that constant ominous feeling is weighing in on them, made worse by the realization that townfolk are disappearing without a trace every night. Those few that know something is wrong can't expect any help from the townsfolk- they never know what is going on beyond their dreary day to day. Can you figure it out before its too late?
