Selya­taği (Floo­d­p­lain)

A search par­ty sear­ches for someo­ne lost in a forest, in turn beco­m­ing lost them­sel­ves wit­hin the arbo­re­al zone.

A half-civi­li­an, half-poli­ce for­ce group evacua­tes the vil­la­ge and the forest for con­struc­tion, and seek in turn the seekers.

An old tree relea­ses a slum­be­ring spell, over­ta­king ever­yo­ne wit­hin its reach.
