Your only child has been taken by goblins to the underground city of Ix, where they mine coal and tend to the great clockwork contraptions that run your perfect world.

You want to remember their name. You want to hold them in your arms, again. You want to bring them home.

Journey into the Underground by yourself or with a team to find your child in this short, two-page TTRPG of urban fantasy. Explore a steam-powered world filled with goblins, monstrous clockwork gears, and endless spiral staircases.
