Your band of travelers stumbles upon a village built vertically into a giant head carved into cliff face that leaks a strange green fluid. In the 9th World, one billion years in the future of the Earth, this might not in of itself be a strange thing, but is there more to these tranquil villagers than meets the eye? Do rumours of ghosts stalking the streets hold any water? And why do all the children seem to be sleepwalking every night?
An adventure for the Numenera system by Monte Cook Games, published in Issue 9 of Cypher Caster Magazine. The adventure includes details about the village of Matha and its unusual inhabitants, an underwater, prior-world ruin, and a colony of mutants living nearby. Written as a one-shot game, the adventure nevertheless contains enough plot-hooks for multiple sessions of play.
