N2K: Necronomicon Millennium
The Good, the Bad & the MangaSilver river, date: unknown, time: High Noon
Folks had been comin' into Silver River for years. Sixty years ago, they'd come hearin' tales o' wide-open spaces far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Forty years ago, more of 'em showed up when word spread that there was Silver in the hills. Twenty years ago, the place became a real town, when the Iron Horses lay their tracks here. Now, they're comin' for something else.
"Professor Ezekial Jonah Nightingale's Miracle Elixir"
No-one knows how the old lunatic makes the stuff, no-one knows where he gets his ingredients. All they know is that it brings people back from the dead, it burns better than oil, and it's the strongest liquor this side of anywhere. But Professor Nightingale has vanished. The Law Dogs blame the Preachers, saying that they killed the Professor for dealin' with the Devil. The Mining Company says that the local two-bit bandits abducted the Professor for ransom. The Chinamen try to keep to themselves. All hell is about to break loose if someone can't find the Professor soon.

The bottom line is this. The Battle for Quellbourne has begun! Ice Kral ships patrol and raid. The Trolls are on the march from their lairs in the mind a good fight. Good communication (manipulative?) skills can be helpful although a sword or bow (or a good back mountains. The followers of Hrassk are expanding their hideous spider cult. The Destroyers of Galtoth are looking for more to obliterate and the Monks of Shaaljin are just...well...just being Monks of Shaaljin. There are rumors the Gnolls have been seen and Dwarves are in the mountains. The people of Kelfour's Landing are digging in. The fight will be fierce and hard.

Of course, there is more going on than is first suspected.
