It is the Year of Our Lord 509, and anarchy has reigned in Logres since the death of King Uther Pendragon almost 15 years before. Your lord, the Count of Noviomagus, sends you on a perilous mission in search of desperately-needed iron to secure his frontier holding. The war has cut his normal supply route, but he has heard of a new source of iron at Mons Fraxinis, deep in the Saxon-held lands across the River Arun. With the Saxons holding the main crossing-points, you will have to bargain with a fay spirit to reach the other side of the river. After that, you must either chance your luck on the Roman Road, which is regularly patrolled by the Saxons, or negotiate the wild woods, the territory of the mysterious Stag Folk. Once you have found the source of the iron, a perilous return journey awaits you. This adventure combines exploration, social interaction, combat and encounters with the fay, and is designed to be used with pregenerated Player Knights from the Pendragon 6th edition Starter Set.
