Let Sleeping Evil Lie


Deep in the bayou, there is an area that the gremlins won’t go. A place so strange, not even the animals of the bayou stay in the area. For those brave enough, those that brave the journey there, they will find nothing more than a cabin. But in the cell of this run down cabin, there is a book, an ancient tome of years gone by. If you read it, legend states, a great power will be granted to you.


Let Sleeping Evil Lie is a three part story encounter, in which you and your opponent race to old cabin in the bayou in search of a tome to grant your crew great power, or will it?


Players should pick one faction to use for the length of the whole encounter, but crews may be switched out between encounters.
