Rustic Vale

Rustic Vale: A Season For Adventure

An adventure for Chuubo's Marvelous Wish Granting Engine

Welcome to the town of Rustic Vale, a pleasant little community far to the west of Soma Village, on the very edge of where the Real and the Outside meet. Overlooked by the Castle of Eternal Night, high in the Doomblood Mountains, Rustic Vale is home to farmers, lumberjacks, miners, and adventurers. Lots of adventurers.

It's a good thing that they're around, though, since they're sort of your lifeblood.

Rustic Vale: A Season for Adventure is a Gothic story set at the edges of the Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine setting, a story of obsession, sorrow, and hope.
