From the back of the book:
Mellisan: a bustling trade center nestled within the broken ridges and deep valleys of the Dragon's Claw Range. In the normally stoic city of steadfast people, mounting disappearances and seemingly endless robberies have spawned paranoia and mistrust. Rumors abound of lurking monsters and goblin raids. Characters must race to solve the mysteries before they become the targets of the town's suspicions.
Evil's Lesser Minions is a 1st-level d20 module for four to six players. Players pursue multiple leads, finding the town beset by robberies, disappearances, and back alley monsters. Seemingly unconnected leads blend together and draw the characters down to a multiple level dungeon occupied by the lesser minions of evil.
