In the midst of summer, temperature has dropped dramatically. Heavy thunderstorms and snow flurries threaten the year’s harvest. Unrest and rumors have overtaken the people as they huddle behind the walls of Fallcrest, dependent on their small militia to defeat whatever foe is endangering their future.
