Dungeons & Dragons // Tales Trees Tell
Step deep into the woods to find a missing person in the forest. Join us on this spooky Dungeons & Dragons mystery, Tales Trees Tell. We’ll be meeting online on Discord. New players welcome!
 
Dungeons & Dragons Tales Trees Tell Description
Despite the shaky alliance that exists with the elves of the Quivering Forest, they do not suffer trespass in their realm lightly, especially from common folk from nearby Phlan. A woodworker’s recent blunder into the forest might set off a diplomatic incident. Can you help find him and mollify the aggravated elves?
