Don't.


Murder.


The locals.


This is small-town serial killer, upstanding citizen, and adorable brown bear Samantha Strong's cardinal rule. After all, there's a sea of perfectly ripe potential victims in the big city just beyond the forest, and when you've worked as hard as Sam to build a cozy life and a thriving business in a community surrounded by friendly fellow animal folk, warm decor, and the aroma of cedar trees and freshly baked apple pie the last thing you want is to disturb the peace.


So you can imagine her indignation when one of Woodbrook's own meets a grisly, mysterious demise-and you wouldn't blame her for doing anything it takes to hunt down her rival before the town self-destructs and Sheriff Patterson starts (literally) barking up the wrong tree.


Live, laugh, shed blood.

Be they mercenary or mage, guided by law or by rage, our heroes will face their terror, and they'd best pray their spines are sturdy enough for the job or the crypt they find may well be their own!
