The villagers of Stormlook are at their cliff’s edge. One of their own went missing. Another turned up dead. Their fish stocks are dwindling, and they’re hungry to blame one group: the selkie, a people who can transform between human and seal.

Stormlook's leader asks for your help to traverse the Captiva Icemark, a perilous ice shelf, and establish contact with the selkie. Will you swear upon iron to complete this journey and bring peace between both communities, or will you succumb to the icy depths? Play to find out.

Content notes

This text contains the following themes: violence, natural disasters, drowning, starvation, murder, kidnapping, war, familial conflict, violence against animals, the undead, characters exoticizing other cultures, and potentially mob violence. Of note, the story revolves around fantasy xenophobia that can be read as an allegory for anti-indigenous racism or colonialism.
