The Violet Valley has a conflicted past of heroic deeds and nasty persecution. Now afflicted with a blight of dark continuous rain, the valley is slowly turning into a boggy mire. The small village of Argol is at risk of losing its major crop of blackberries to the encroaching swamp. Additionally, villagers have begun to disappear in mysterious and grisly fashion to a supposed pack of rabid wolves. Superstition, paranoia, guilt, shame all weigh heavy on the Valley.
