LANKHMAR... city of thieves, city of the night, city of adventure. Once again a dark bargain has been struck, and a murder committed in a dark and narrow street. An ancient book, an expedition through the Sinking Lands, and a strange treasure brought back to the city were enough to trigger the envy of the rich and powerful. Deadly plots are conceived, concocted, and brewed like ancient poisons. In the dead of night stalks the might of a temple, n the wake of a secret and arcane intrigue. Where the path of adventure meets terrible creatures of the night and the envy of so many, will you be able to survive the tricks and dangers of ancient Lankhmar
