The unclean places of Jashandar have come alive with a vengeance, hollows of slime, treetops of flesh, the heart of a bog where the beasties run wild. As Brine and Jaysh set out to salvage their homeland, they soon learn their homeland has a mind of its own. More
Jaysh and Brine have their backs against a wall: Royal subjects are fleeing, rivers run black, the bulk of the livestock are being wadded into mush. Our heroes would love to deploy troops against these happenings, but sadly enough they have no troops to deploy.

Jaysh and Brine have no choice in the matter; they must now venture into the unclean places of their land.
