The water is hot, boiling. Mist arises from the surface of Bloodwater, covering the area surrounding this volcanic lake. In the last weeks, explorers tell stories about mysterious shadows walking on the lakeshore, distant from the small settlements welcoming the usual visitors of Abazo. Shadows followed by cryptic voices in the deep forest, disappearing in the blink of an eye. The people living in this area report an unsettling feeling of anxiety and pressure, a primordial instinct towards something still to happen. Like the calm before the storm. Your adventuring party is camping nearby one of these kale settlements, but the sight of one of these shadows in the mist captures your curiosity. And, we all know that, “curiosity killed the cat”.
