The holiday season is a good time together with friends and loved ones you might not see all that often. If your friends and loved ones are into gaming, it could be a good time to get a quick RPG session in. But, since you don't see each-other very often, you probably don't want to get a whole campaign going. Hence the one-shot adventure. You get together, play through, and that's that. Of course, if you are part of a long-running campaign, you can throw them in as well from time to time. Wyrd Games has just released The Ferryman, a new Penny Dreadful One Shot adventure for the Through the Breach RPG.
What happens when a river, that was already sort of a treacherous place to end up gets even more treacherous? Well, you send in some adventurers to see what's going on, of course! Sailors are disappearing along Malifaux's river and you've gotta figure out what's going on. Of course, doing it out of "the kindness of your heart" isn't really what the Malifaux world is all a bout. No, a sizable bounty has been placed on the head of whatever's doing this haunting. Get in there and get it before someone else does!
