The Inn at Five Points is a local landmark – set deep in farm country between five population centers, the Inn is the only public house within several days ride in any direction. The Inn has a reputation as a spot for decent food, good drink, and a good night’s rest—and it has a special reputation for Neutrality. Often folks meet there to negotiate, make peace, and work out long-standing differences.
The amenable neutrality of The Inn attracted the attention of The Order of the Crawling Lord, who represents the most extreme and repugnant ideals of Law: oppression, slavery, and a merciless survival-of-the-fittest ethic that intentionally instills deep self-loathing in its members, forcing them to meditate every day on how inadequate and malformed they are when compared with the Eternal. And now they target The Inn.
Can a rag-tag group of adventurers possibly prevent the ascension of the vile Crawling Lord? Will they ever see the light of day again? And what exactly makes Arlo and Quendy’s rosemary bread so addictive?
All this and more shall be answered at The Inn at Five Points.
