In the decades before the Civil War, runaway slaves found refuge in the Great Dismal Swamp, an enormous expanse of forbidding wilderness on the border between Virginia and North Carolina. They were constantly pressed between the danger of capture and the extreme challenges of material survival in a landscape where even stone and metal were rarefied resources. To this day, only faint traces of their lives and communities can be found deep within the swamp. For one group of new fugitives in the 1850s, their struggles in the swamp are further complicated by a dark force offering an easy way out of their desperate circumstances. What will they choose to do with their hard-won freedom? Ethan adapted the Red Markets system for this scenario, adding some cosmic horror elements (as if economic horror weren’t bad enough).
