In the shadows of the Blacktooth Ridge, the village of Malforten is nestled along the banks of the Drunderry River, near the Fallow Hills. A quiet village with simple people, they learned the hard way the Blacktooth Ridge casts a deep and dark shadow. Seeing rich prizes in cattle and grain, people and other movables, Gritznak the Gnoll has come down from the Blacktooth with loot on his mind. At their wits end, the villagers turn to others, more experienced in combatting evil. They look to a rising knight to save them… The Rising Knight is a Level 1 5th Edition Adventure.
