From the introduction:
Having broken out of the Burneal Forest, you find yourself on the open snowy plains with the Tiger Nomads to your west and the Wolf Nomads to your east. As you paddle south, you come across a tiger and wolf entering into combat. Could this encounter foreshadow your future on the nomadic plains? If you can survive the bandits, the ghost riders in the sky, and the wild threats to your life, you may just find out how prescient the tiger and wolf may be. Further south, near the Yatil Mountains, you come across a gnome in distress, who pleads for your help against the goblins that have taken over the Yatil Salt Mines. Will the adventuring party come to the rescue? Find out in Chapter 3 of the Great Flanaess River Adventure!
