A Dark Caravan

From out of the endless forest the Menagerie arrives, to snatch a vampire from the clutches of an angry mob, and to trade an old man's life for a young girl's.

Slow Road to Torgo

Merunga leaves The Stone, her caravan little of what it once was. Now it is the time to set it to order.

A Stop Along the Way

The Menagerie comes to Humelt, a small place, out of the way, but full of memories.

The Hovel

On the road to Torgo, Merunga and her Menagerie seek shelter. But the road is a dangerous place, even those places of safety are not what they appear.

Pretty Bird

Ekho, seeking safety while the Caravan visits the Hovel, finds safety a fleeting thing.

A Funny Way of Living

Some chose to live in homes anchored in the dirt, others prefer homes on wheels that travel where they may. Karkle prefers those houses that do not not move, but finds himself in rather a different situation.

Ugly Duckling

Chybi, once an apprentice, once a prisoner, now a lich, finds himself in dangerous company, and dispatched with a deadly purpose.

Strange Places

The Menagerie has at long last reached Torgo, but while Merunga finds herself at home among the strange and bizarre, those traveling with her find it altogether different.

Greenwitch

The Three Sisters are all gathered together in Torgo, and therein lies the problem.

Man in the Dark

Having been forced to leave Torgo, Merunga rests in the town of Kev, and ponders where she will go next.
