(from the back of the book)
Everywhere the ordinary people and peasants look up to the patricians, merchants and nobles, and envy them for their lives without worries and troubles. However, influence and wealth draw resentments - those in power carry heavy loads and are beset by open and hidden enemies. Often, the power has a high price, and usually it does not ask for the willingness to pay that price.
The price of power (Preis der Macht) is an adventure collection sitiuated in the heartland of the empire of Horas . An empire that is famed for the splendor of past and present, and where the heroes will be confronted with the ones in power and the price they have to pay. This collection contains the following four separate adventures from the empire of Horas and the city of Drôl:

Asseln im Gemäuer (Isopods in the walls) by Peter Diehn
