The Pestilence, god of plagues, curses a small village. His dire priest ruins the fields, fouls the water, and transforms innocent villagers into rancid ghouls who crave human flesh.
Enter two farmers, displaced by years spent fighting their baron’s war. They escort a priest of the Green Lord who might cure the village, if they can first brave the afflicted and overcome the deadly plague master.
Can this unlikely trio save the village without destroying it? Or will they, like the villagers, succumb to The Curse of Valassa?
