Tribute to the False God
Pay Your Tribute or Perish!
The small dwarven village of z’Zmoppopp is located at the two forks where three creeks join to become the headwaters of the Ningz River. Originally founded by miners, the village is now mostly inhabited by ranch hands and service industry personnel. Mining dried up several generations ago when a mad dwarven sorcerer decided to take up residence in the mines on Mount Zkhann. The sorcerer declared himself a god, demanded that the villagers create a starfruit orchard, and ordained that tribute would be provided annually in the form of potable water, starfruit, and slaves. Some of the surviving miners founded the NullStar Ranch, a 3300-acre starfruit orchard, while others turned to becoming slave merchants.
Today is the day the townsfolk send their tribute. Are you a slave, captured by dwarves or gnomes in the Danthforz Forest? Or are you a villager brave enough to lead the tribute, despite the fact that none return from delivering it?
