Preview the Adventure
With the influx of Shadow into our world, musty tomes and relics imbued with mystic powers are beginning to surface everywhere. Many who desire power above all else go to great pains to find and use such items, regardless of the cost.
Could such an item of Shadow be the cause of the current string of murders plaguing the city? All but the last two victims are missing body parts -- always their hands, and sometimes other parts as well. Is this murder spree the work of a madman? A cult dedicated to the worship of some dark god? Or does the killer have some grisly use in mind for the amputated body parts? It's up to the heroes to find the answers before the killer can claim any more lives.
