Beyond the Half-Dead City: Issue 1
A downloadable zine
Slip into the dieseldream of Mennefai, the Half-Dead City, and the nations beyond it. Fly across the Khamhai desert aboard a cloud dwarf zeppelin. Ride on a sea elf gondola through the canals of Mathilbeind.
But, whatever you do, wherever you go, however you plan to spend your days—your nights are uneasy. Half-dead can be a whole lot of trouble….
