You are unknown to me but I must entrust you with the fate of all of us. We are trapped high in the Tundrabower. Each day a darkness gathers, growing, seeking something here that would grant it ultimate power...
You receive this call to action, a map and some notes about the Black Steppe, a scorching, barren land full of strangeness and desperation with an otherworldy vertical forest at its heart.
A fanatical tribe that await a figure who can survive a lightning strike; a giant chain used for traversing the brutal land; legends of a whale that slumbers in an underground cave — such oddities await you.
Explore the various features and settlements of the Black Steppe to prepare for your voyage into the Tundrabower and the mysteries that lie there.
This setting has been designed for the solo game Lay On Hands in mind but can be used for other systems, even more traditional group games (with a DM prepared to flesh out the world that's described here and make it their own).
