Description

When a human traveler wanders through a mysterious doorway, they find themselves on the threshold of a strange inn, lost in another world. Inside, they meet an old sprite named Grael – one part innkeeper, two parts storyteller, and one part deposed trickster god. The sprite uses a series of strange, interconnected tales to teach them about the twisted fairy tale realm they've stumbled into... Only for the traveler to realize that Grael might not be as trustworthy as he seems, and the Echowood more dangerous than they could have imagined.

When a traveler stumbles through a strange archway of stone and wood and magic, they find themselves on the threshold of an inn in the heart of an ancient forest.
