SYNOPSIS:

You’ve spent your whole life among the stolid, staid and downright stubborn people of Breyburgh, a city of goat herders that actually takes its name from the tenacious animal’s vocalization.

As a young person growing up in this boring backwater village, you always thought you were special and meant for something different. Something more than the life of a farmer, a goatherd, a miller or a tanner. You’ve dreamt of something grander: a life of adventure!  

Your escape has always been just a dream, until now! Something strange and troubling is afoot in the village of Breyburgh. The cats in the village have gone missing. First one or two, which could be explained by forest predators, but now all the cats in the village are gone…and no one knows why.  

As luck would have it, now there’s a visiting stranger involved, a magic user no less, whose feline companion went missing. He’s offered a reward if someone can find his lost cat Jasmine and return her to him.

This is the chance you’ve been waiting your whole life for! It’s your time to shine; if you and your companions can find this mage’s cat you just might become “The Heroes of Breyburgh”.  

The adventure features a party of neophyte adventurers setting out to find fame and fortune by solving the mystery of why all of the cats in their little village are disappearing. Along the way the players are, for better or worse…probably worse, going to get caught up in the eternal struggle between two mischievous fae miscreants, the leprechaun twins Fiona Ó Finn and her brother Greagoir.

This will lead the party on an adventure into the Land of Faerie, where they will face all sorts of riddles, traps and nonsense before discovering the fate of the lost cats and, perhaps if they are very lucky, finding Greagoir – and nabbing his pot o’ gold or coercing a wish from him or some other grand reward the bards always sing of!

With an all-new, author-designed system for creating ZERO LEVEL PCs, and six such characters included as pre-generated PCs, this supplement offers a wonderful introduction to the pleasures of role-playing games to new players, and an exciting opportunity to become part of a tightly knit group of players with an integrated back story here in the Village of Breyburgh. You can be in on the ground floor in forming your own adventuring band of renown, just like the Waffle Crew or the players of Critical Role!
