A lovely introductory scenario for Maelstrom Domesday.
Your investigators are sent by a Baron to discover the truth behind the stories of a beast in Ledsham. Is there really a beast or are the locals simply using it as a story and excuse for poaching the Lords animals? Only some good investigating will unearth the truth!
This book is well laid out with the introductory plot followed by the stories background for the Referee. Each household is then documented with each person's probable responses to the investigations of your players. The men of the village also have stats to give you a good idea of what they are capable of.
The end of the book provides advice in case your investigators are taking too long (they should take a maximum of three days to solve this mystery!) in their research, and also a couple of ways the investigation may end.
This is a very nice, medium complexity scenario that provides a great introduction to Maelstrom Domesday and shows Referees how they might go about making their own stories up afterwards.
