Bandcamp version

In previous chapters the creatures of Svartby got very lucky with hexing and pillaging peaceful peasant villages and having lots of fun. But at a certain moment destroying yet another hapless hamlet is no effort at all. So, what's next? And what are those walls and towers we behold beyond the pines...

A strong human city requires quite an imaginative approach. You can't head straight to the gates - well, it's war, that will result in casualties, and casualties among Svartby folk ain't no fun at all. So the masterminds of the Black Village made their choice: it will be a slow poisonous penetration rather than a dumbass attack.

We can't bring the city into the forest, but we can bring a deadly slimy environment to the city walls: the swamp. The mighty marshland offers a vast field of activities and experiments: mutated plants and creatures, raised zombies, viruses, vapors and maladies... You bet it would be exciting.

Welcome to the 4th chapter of Svartby storybook - The Swamp!
