The Darkest Dream begins the epic tale of a group of Hanataz youth who are charged with working security for the last Carnivalle of the season. The Hanataz are the Traveling Folk of the world of Zyathé and are an ostracized people due to the many Blood-Touched members of their troupes. While the Traveling Folk are not welcome in most towns and villages, the shows they put on are enjoyed by many. However, this is no ordinary Carnivalle. Horrid and vile schemes are afoot: an ancient foe plots deadly revenge; a group of organized criminals looks to frame the Hanataz for murder; and, nearby, creatures from the Dark Below plan an attack on the camp. Beyond this, it is Darktide’s Eve, which is a time of fearful and evil portents.
Can you and your friends overcome the many dangers you will face, protect the troupe, and solve the mystery of the Darkest Dream?
If you don’t, many will die, including those you love.

About Zyathé: The Wy’rded World
Zyathé was not always as it is now. In the beginning it was magnificent, beautiful unspoiled, and untouched by the vileness that twists, warps, and infests it today.
Today Zyathé is known as the Wy’rded World for it is now an afflicted place with broken gods who oversee a place that is but a shadow of what it once was. The high races can no longer retain their once-mighty positions while the lower races rise. Conflict, corruption, and the "Perversion of All Things" is the new truth. Monstrous abominations stalk the wilds. Powerful, evil beings seek all manner of nefarious ends. Sovereignties, nation-states, tyrannies, and invaders clash on every continent. And in the depths of the Zyanduun, which is called the Underdelve, all manner of dark and horrible creatures contest with the peoples that live there.
This, my friend, is Zyathé: The Wy’rded World. And, for good or ill, it is where you make your home.
