Make Lives Better through Roleplaying Games

This adventure is one piece of a movement within the TTRPG community to invite, encourage, and include those who have not been, both in the TTRPG community and nearly everywhere in real life. Wyrmworks Publishing is dedicated to using TTRPGs to help you make lives better, to provide tools, training, and a community to this end. We believe that this will extend far beyond the ever-growing TTRPG community as more and more people learn, grow, and give and receive acceptance.

To that end, this adventure includes disabled NPCs just like in real life and includes encounter notes to account for for disabled PCs.
