Plot Summary
The Path Where No One Goes
left-aligned image
Mammoth’s Crest
Nestled high in a mountain vale surrounded by spruce, fir and pine, close to the shore of small lake fed by melting snow from higher altitudes, sits the human village of Tunglland, the Village of the Moon. So named for an occurrence every summer where the moon touches the peak of the Mammoth’s Crest mountain. This however, is the dead of a chilling winter where game is scarce and the crops all harvested.

Snow has been falling heavy for the past week and the huts around Sibyl’s Grotto are heavily laden. The cavern is stocked with provisions to last through until spring, cured meats, roots, mushrooms, enough for the entire village. Such bounties attract envy.

You had ventured out with your companions hunting elk along the western slopes. Dragging your catch back, you hear an earth-shaking thud repeating over and over again. Creeping to the outskirts of the village you see four ogres pounding the collapsed entrance to Sybil’s Grotto with trees and stones. You do not see any villagers amidst the wreckage. The Elder Torild must have gotten everyone into the cave and brought the entrance down. There is food and water within to last them until spring but the entrance will need cleared. A task the three of you will not be able to complete on your own without supplies and tools. The nearest village, Brekka, is a week’s trek in the summer. Giving up on the cave, the ogres futilely search Tunglland before losing interest and moving down the path toward Brekka, blocking your path to find help.

Although, there is the treacherous mountain pass, banon gar ingen, the path where no one goes.
