Ancient Skin

Concept: “One of you dregs is plagued with a maddening itch and not only that – the skin is starting to rot. They say Mausoleum Knutha, on the edge of the graveyard Graven-Tosk, holds the only known cure.”
Content:
A complex and variable (not to mention twisted) crawl through Sarkash
Writing:
Efficient but vivid descriptions of locations and inhabitants punctuated by grim wit
Art/design:
Marvelous maps; type design helps map the connections amongst locations and items
Usability:
Provides checkboxes to track variables (but if you mark this pamphlet, you’re a heathen and you deserve whatever misery befalls you)
*Backer reward for original Kickstarter campaign; special thanks to Johan for providing a copy of this rare little gem
