You have recently being staying in the village of Lorwen, a small village situated near a huge forest, rumoured to be infested with faerie folk.

Talas is transporting timber to Deepbridge.
Each adventure book for Legend of the Wayfarer presents a solitaire adventure for use with the game. These proceed, typically, by presenting a paragraph or so of text followed by a test or decision which leads to another page. Each adventure book also has a page of random numbers in case the player is in a location that does not facilitate die rolls.
