Chapter 32: A Walk in the Park - Introduction

This is a Call of Cthulhu adventure, “Tatters of the King” by Tim Wiseman, adapted for the Freeport setting. You can read more about Arcanis at http://www.onaraonline.org. Please note: This adventure contains spoilers!

Our cast of characters includes:

• Vlad Martell (human fighter) played by Matt Hammer

What was surprising is that he nearly wiped the floor with the party. They made short work of the byakhee, only to fail save after save after save.
