2017 Version Rear of Book Text
From the back cover.
The Blacktooth Ridge, fabled for its string of long abandoned fortresses, treasure houses, temples and underground mansions lies far to the north and east of the civilized lands. Dangerous journeys and the promise of treasure invite many an adventurer to the wilds along the Ridge. There they seek fame and fortune. But it is an altogether dangerous place, tainted with the evil of the Horned God; there in hidden caves and darkened temples some linger still who call him their master. Of late these creatures have issued forth to plague the few people who call the ridge home, the town of Botkinburg most of all.
Now, raids and plundering confound the settlements near the Blacktooth Ridge. Rumors of Rottenkip the Goblin King and his fearless warriors taking up residence in the Blacktooth Ridge are circulating. Ogres and Trolls are raiding villages and looting caravans. Few are coming to the aid of those beset by these depredations and the evil denizens of the Blacktooth Ridge continue to spill out ever further across the lands.
The call has gone out, the mustering of militias is at hand, and the Blacktooth Ridge beckons to any and all willing to come to their aid and discover what is calling forth these foul creatures.
