An Incarna™ Steel Realms [fantasy] adventure for characters defending the barony of Crestwold against Gwinnish invaders. Set in the south lands of Dunstrand, near the border with Loamwold, the characters are mustered into a makeshift army in the off season to defend the Barony of Crestwold. The Gwinnish forces have waited for the weather to turn and the army to be recalled until campaign season – they are practiced in fighting in any season at sea, and are using it to their advantage.

Using the Adventure Materials
Read through the entire adventure and familiarize yourself with the entire scenario and encounter set. If its too much to track, break the game session and milestones into what you can manage - generally it is better to end early with a good experience than fumble through a poor one. Materials are presented here in groupings of the most likely order the players will experience them in. If they go off-script, you must be ready to adjust and improvise.
