Over the past couple of weeks, outlying farms have been attacked, leaving neither survivors nor corpses. Serfs tending flocks of sheep in upland pastures have vanished. The locals suspect marauding ogres grown bold. The heroes will be persuaded to help and will have the opportunity to investigate the scene of the latest attack. The adventurers may discover that this is no ogre raid – the trail will lead deep into the hills where an ancient barrow has been appropriated by a vampire and its spawn.
