Boots wet from crossing the small river, you tramp up onto the remnants of a small road. A small village lies before you. Its mostly wooden cottages stand arrayed in neat order along either side of the road. The dinner hour is only just past and the town is muted and dark. Shutters and doors are tightly closed, and the gentle clanking of your armor and equipment echoes in the still quiet. No dogs bark. There is no sound but the ragged breaths of your tired band.
  Lord Galveston's lands are plagued by murders. For the past several months people have been disappearing. Some bodies have turned up, their corpses found along the banks of the river. Strange tracks of a cat-like creature have been found around the villages, and rumors abound that a Cheron fiend, a dreaded beast of chaos, has come from the nearby wood, and settled in the area. The latest victim is the Deacon of the Four Saints Church in Capendu. His body, found in the river. sent the alarmed villagers in search of aid.
  The adventure in the lands of the aged Lord Galveston and plunges everyone into a twisted tale of wild beasts and the restless dead. Unriddle the adventure and discover the truth behind "A Lion in the Ropes".

“A Lion in the Ropes” is a mystery. The module is designed for 4-8 characters of 2-4 levels. A cleric would be extremely helpful, as would a ranger or some character with rudimentary tracking skills.
  The adventure occurs in the lands of Lord Galveston, largely within the village of Capendu, and specifically in and around Four Saints Church. It requires some overland travel however, between the other villages and the tower of the aged Lord Galveston. Because the adventure involves several discordant threads designed to challenge the players and to mislead them, the Castle Keeper should thoroughly read the module and familiarize themselves with the mystery.
