From the rear cover:
The door to the Mughouse bursts open as a man yells "Help, someone, anyone!" The pub quiets into whispers and frightened stares. The man is an overweight laborer in a blue grey tunic and flowing brown hair and beard. He is sweating excissively and looks very winded. A boy runs in behind him and stands to his side, helping the man stay on his feet. It takes the laborer a moment to catch his breathe before wheezing out, "please someone, my boy Kevin has fallen down a hole at the old watchtower! I cannot get to him. I need able-bodied folk to get my boy out safe!"
Another bar patron yells forth "the old watchtower? What do ye mean Donald? Many people have been up to the tower, kids play in it, it has no holes or anything?"
Donald replies, " I know, but Gregory here came to get me when Kevin fell in and took me up to where the hole is. There is a hole and ladder under the dirt and boards of the main floor of the tower. I don't know why it's never been found before, but the hole sure is there and my boy is down in it, so who's gonna help me?"
The old watchtower stands outside of town. The boy's frantic father requests your aid. Are you brave enough to delve deep down inside the watchtower on the hill?
