A Deadly Decision in the Deep
A desperate search for a way home becomes something far greater when your heroes stumble into the middle of an all-out invasion on the ocean planet of Vareen! Minions of the evil Ultari Hegemony want Vareen’s ever-renewing clean water supply, but their aquatic legions threaten to overwhelm the inhabitants and seize control of the planet’s gateway nexus. The heroes must battle the invading host from the stormy surface to the pelagic depths, contending with technomagical terrors from beyond and primitive marine menaces from the ocean’s darkest abyss, all the while discovering for themselves whether home is still a faraway green planet, or here among the stars. Victory and defeat alike may come with a terrible price in The Depths of Desperation!
