You're Either Red or You're Dead
Limm is a small town on a picturesque tidal island. For much of every day it is cut off from the rest of civilisation.
Its people are insular. Self-sufficiency runs in their blood.
Myth and superstition have become their currency.
But what will happen to this close-knit community when the deepest, darkest of these myths starts to come to life, red in tooth and claw? What happens when the island comes under siege from external forces, hell-bent on tearing the place apart?
The moon waxes. The tide of Darkness swells. Soon it will reach high-tide, and all the pretty Dark things which have heretofore remained hidden will come out to play. Will come to Paint the Town Red...
Only the unlikeliest bunch of reluctant heroes stand in its way. Will they discover their bravery in time?
