In Legacy of Blood, one of the player characters has inherited the reins of power in the realm of Fenholm, and must learn to cope with the problems of this new rulership.
The player character's cousin Rolph is dead, and as his heir, the player character was willed his dominion: Fenhold. The Deep Swamp is threatening to engulf all of this new holding. People are seeing ghosts, disappearing without reason, and crops are suddenly blighted. The farmers don't like the swampdwellers, the swampdwellers don't like the farmers, and no one likes the halflings. It is the player character's task to make all this shipshape once again.
