It’s known by most as Big Sky. Crows Rest has the most open horizon you’ll see before hitting the coastline and for all it’s dangers it is a beautiful place. Rolling hills divided by streams and hedgerows, the odd tree or low ancient wall breaking up the soft horizon line. For most of the year it is a peaceful place to cross straight out from the Capital and setting you on the path to places like Rainbow Mountain, Icemantle and other far more treacherous regions.

(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

It starts as a low rumble in your ears, though twisting a stubby finger into it doesn’t seem to clear out the noise. It grows louder until, squinting into the darkness of the surrounding fields, you see a migration of Boarfrog thundering towards you. You are out of time to move and they are not showing signs of diverting. You ready your weapon!

Face off against the Boarfrog Stampede in the Encounters section.



The region by torchlight is unrecognisable. Old familiar paths seem to criss cross and change. You spot a ruin with a dim light on the near horizon and try a shortcut to investigate but as you step over the low crumbling wall you are met by Watch-bear Orions bemused smile.
“Going well is it Boxfresh?”

You sigh, frustrated, as you realise you’ve just lost an hour going in circles.


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

Down at a river crossing you begin to hear something through the winds and the babbling water. Something rustling fast through the tall grass. Heavy yet spry. You know exactly what is coming as you take a defensive stance and raise your weapon. The Silver Swarm launch out of the reeds like hungry lions!

Face off against the Silver Swarm in the Encounters section.



You wonder into a small patch of intriguing looking flowers. On closer inspection they look like porcelain eyes arranged like berries on a short, branch-like stem, and most uncomfortably they appear to follow your gaze and begin to weep a thick red fluid,
As you turn to leave you knock one of the plants and it instantly puffs out a thick cloudy spray of red noxious gas.

Roll 3 D10.

You plug your nose and squeeze your eyes closed, backing out of the patch.
You escape the patch of flowers and return to the Encampment.

You breath in some of the red mist and immediately suffer searing pain as the spores begin to dissolve your fluff from inside.
Take 2FP damage and re-roll all the die.


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

Crossing through a clearing of tall grass you hear some commotion nearby. A ruffling and click clacking, pecking sound. You scan the large clearing and spot two large shapes shoving and butting at one another as if fighting over something on ground between them. It takes a moment to make out what it is as you edge closer when finally one of them flusters two great black wings in a show of intimidation to the other. Crows! You take a step back straight onto some dry bracken.
Such a cliché that a twig would give you away and yet here you are. Both the crows heads snap around to spy your position and they take off at once, circling you ready to strike.

Face off against the Giant Crows in the Encounters section.



You spot a small blue floating light disappear around a hillside. By the time you reach the corner you spot it entering a small cave. As you rush to catch up to it you lose your balance at the caves loose rocky entrance and fall into a pit of branch, bone and rock.
The floating light appears to chuckle cheerily before extinguishing. Leaving you to tend to your wounds.

Take 2FP damage.



Something took a considerable chunk out of a bear strewn in some long grass. Only legs and arms remain which suggests it was a strike from above. The bite is too rounded and clean for a crow though. Looks like the DragonMoth is at large.
On the belt kit you spy one repair kit and one smoke grenade. It’s of no use to them any more.

Gain 1 Repair Kit.
Add 1 Smoke Grenade to your Grenade Belt.
You spot that the fallen ted is a Frontier Class, if you are also a Frontier Class you also gain a Staniss Hotshot Sidearm (You knew where to look).



You follow a small floating light into a dark cave, a few blind corners and you lose sight of the light, but it seems you have stumbled on some kind of treasure horde.

Roll 2 Loot!


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

The patrol seems to be going nowhere, but then you realise it appears things just got quieter. Eerily quiet. Like all the chirruping bugs and small nocturnal birds just evacuated the area. Then you see it, in a dark rocky patch on a nearby hillside a few ghostly orbs smoulder silently, staring at you. The silence is broken suddenly with an ear splitting screech as the eyes dance apart from each other and swoop across the shadowy grassland as they make their speedy approach to flank you.

Face off against the Forgotten Shriekers in the Encounters section.



If you have been here before gain one Invigorated  and roll a new Patrol.

You crest a treelined hill that overlooks a quiet dell, a peaceful lake lies at the centre, sunlight decorating surface with glittering diamonds of light. You hear birds chattering softly in the trees overhead and the lake laps against the rocky edges.

A small jetty lies nearby and on it you are surprised to spot a brown bear sat silently at the very edge. After a few seconds you realise you likely didn’t spot them because they are not moving at all.

A sigh of sadness ejects itself from your mouth without your intention, as you comprehend this spot was chosen specifically by them, and you can see why.

You tread respectfully softly down the wooden boardwalk and beside the slumped bear you see a sword and an ashen pile of fabric smoulders in a mess tin.

On the sword-face, near the hilt you see a name etched into the blade.

You feel compelled to bury the Tedguard bear out of respect.

Choose one of the reactions below.
(Without checking through them)

You feel humbled by the act.
Gain one Invigorated 

After you have smoothed the dirt over the burial place you take a moment to scatter the ashes in the mess tin across the lake and hold a minutes silence. You contemplate how fragile your connection with your human charge is, and that their life is governed by things beyond how much they are loved.

You hope the bear is at peace with Camilla and leave the dell to its soft choir of lapping water and tweeting birds.

Only a mad bear turns down Ursium steel.
Gain the Tedguard Sword: Camilla.
Equip it as a primary weapon or add it to your Inventory.

Camilla’s Bonus: Successful Hits against Forgotten opponents are classed as two damage each.



Instant / Encounter.

In the darkness you start to feel the path become marshy beneath your boots, you momentarily flash a small torch to get a better look at your surroundings and you discover you have wandered into the middle of herd of Boarfrog, sleeping soundly in the cool mud.
These creatures are notoriously territorial. You’ll have to tread very carefully.

Make a Saving Throw.
8 to 10 = Return to camp safely.
You make it out of the herd without disturbing them.

1 to 7 = Face off against Boarfrog Stamede in the Encounters Section.
(Additional time cost: 1 hour)
A loud rustling here, a snapped twig there and before you know it the herd is stirring. The disgruntled crowd locates you quickly and become hostile!

You methodically tread through the swamp without making a sound and you even find bullrushes along the way. Add them to your Inventory (Bullrushes Heals 2FP when consumed).

You get clear of the herd and continue on your patrol.



As you march into one of the deeper valleys of Crowsrest and low cloud cover sets in you lose sight of the path ahead and the stars above. but your confidence gives you faithful bearings. Some time passes before you begin to question if you’re on the right path.
You crest the valleys hill to discover you are deep into a sprawling meadow, lights of the local encampments twinkle in the distance.
It takes you some time to get back onto the patrol paths.

Roll 1 D10.

You lose another hour.
Return to the Encampment.

You lose two hours.
Return to the Encampment.


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

The base of one of the hillside paths is particularly dark. The sound of tumbling stones nearby warrants a quick flashlight check and you just catch sight of a Silvers tail vanishing behind a large rock boulder. You raise your weapon to get a clear shot if it shows itself but as you do you hear an alarming scrambling sound racing up on your side.
Another Silver dives onto you before you have a chance to swing your weapon.

Bank one die for the Encounter.
Face off against the Silver Swarm in the Encounters section.


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

The night air is cool and the skies are clear, the path ahead seems quiet so all signs are pointing to a relaxed stroll instead of a patrol, until you hear a telltale sound.
A distant but sharp CAW breaks the sound of the breeze and you snap into position, scanning the stars for any dark shapes. You spot one in the distant sky, flying fast and banking towards you, another swoops directly overhead and lands behind you with another shrill CAWW!

Face off against the Giant Crows in the Encounters section.



You wander from the path to investigate a strange noise beyond the bank of the path. The fields beyond are so dark it feels like you’re straying into an inky black bog, soon enough you discover that couldn’t have been closer to the truth!
Your boots are stuck fast in a thick black bog and you can feel something curling slowly around your ankle.You heave and pull but both the grip and the suction of the bog seems to increase.
You recall that relaxing is the best way to escape, as counter intuitive as it feels, you try it.

Make a Saving Throw.
Roll 1 D10.

Lose the resulting number in time.
(e.g. If you roll two 5’s then lose 5 hours)
It takes strength and determination to pull yourself from the bog but you make it out at last.

You wrestle free of bog.
Fortunately you discover the situation early and pull yourself free with ease.


(Additional Time Cost: 1 Hour)

Passing an old Encampment you decide to take five. Sitting down on a crumbled down wall and take in the scenery. The sharp moon sits against a star speckled blanket of deep blue and for a moment you feel suitably small against the vastness of whatever lies beyond the skies and shores of the Tedlands.
The horizon cuts the ocean of stars off sharply, creating its heavy shadow that makes it difficult to see what details are close by or far away and something strikes you as strange. There are two stars sitting below the horizon line. Then two more flicker on. It doesn’t take long for you to be upright again, weapon ready as the stars begin to move towards you, zigging and zagging through the fields. It’s hard to get an accurate shot on them and before you know it they are upon you!

Make a Saving Throw.
Roll 1 D10.

The Shriekers claws meet your fur with a mad ferocity.
Take the resulting number as Permanent Damage (Mark an X in the Fluff Points Box)

Instant / Encounter

Against a tree you spy a bear sat against the trunk, slumped in a telltale lifeless position. You flash a torch against the figure and to your sad yet unsurprised realisation you see that you have found a fallen ted.
You take a knee and examine him. Panda type, chunky, nothing but a pistol, a single casing lies in the dirt nearby. Did he shoot and miss? A fly buzzes nearby breaking your concentration, you shoo it away and feel a heavy heart for what may have occurred here.

You look nearby for any more clues.

This Encounter does not cost any additional time.

No visible signs point to this being an attack, it’s as if this poor Ted gave into their demons.


Instant / Encounter.

Somewhere in the centre of the Crowsrest region lies a large lake called Wyrms Well, on account of there being a giant sinkhole at the centre of the lake big enough for a dragon. Fireside stories tell of a battle between a giant wyrm and the Ennead, supposedly there are Ennead relics at the bottom of the well but no-ted knows how deep it goes.
You are treading along the shoreline of the Wyrms Well when you spy a little green flame flickering just ahead of you. You tug your ear and blink hard after you swear you hear it call to you. It flickers playfully and starts to move towards a cave across the water from you. You instinctively begin to make your way around the lake towards the flame in pursuit of what it might have to show you.


Make a Saving Throw.
Roll 1 D10.

You cannot resist the urge to follow the floating light into the dark cave. As you enter, the light burns brightly, awakening a shadow in the darkness. It’s already too late by the time you realise what you are up against.

A deafening pressure in the air rushes over you, almost pushing you to your knees. By the time you look up, there’s nothing to be seen, twinkling stars and a few whispers of clouds. Then you feel it again, pressure in the air swooping towards you. As you look up you see a vacuous space in the sky. Growing as though the stars are burning out. You break into a sprint and roll for cover under a nearby tree to witness a terrifying sight. A BlackHawk DragonMoth thuds into the grassland so close to you. Ragged wings settling and billowing like a gigantic black war banner.

You know it can smell you. For all the shadowy void that it is you can still feel its eyes fixed on your location. Little bear, hiding under a tree from an unavoidable winged death. You muster your courage and step out into the field to face the DragonMoth.

Face off against the BlackHawk DragonMoth in the encounters section.

Blackhawk DragonMoth

The DragonMoths shadowy shape seems to bow, in your heart you feel like this is a gesture of some respect, facing your opponent like a hero. But in your head you can already tell it’s simply sizing you up and preparing to rush you as its wings unfurl behind it.

Special Encounter Effect: You cannot Flee from the BlackHawk DragonMoth unless you have a smoke grenade or ability that allows it.
