This is a one-shot adventure for levels 4 to 7, which includes a new Druidic Circle (Circle of the Full Moon), new monsters, new magic items, lore, and maps for battles and the region. In addition, all of the stats are available for many of the most popular fantasy systems.

In Whispers of the Woods, you play as villagers journeying into the woods, whether for a fight, a parley, a rite of passage, or a picnic will depend on your gaming table. This uses a d6 for all rolls, but some are standard roll-and-report-the-result whereas others are roll with your eyes closed and guess the result. Along with the rules is a hex map generator that has plot hooks and encounters.

Anyone ever played Coven & Crucible? I love the art, wasn't sure about the game itself so didn't back the kickstarter (the second one that actually funded and delivered)
