The Heroes sat around the campfire, listening to the closing ceremonies and reminiscing about the adventures they had this summer… When suddenly, they were interrupted by a familiar face! Baba Yaga, a witch they had met this summer while exploring Bulgarian mythology, approached the circle. A hush fell over the group as she spoke her next words: 

“Heroes, I trust you have not forgotten that you still owe me a favor. I helped you defeat the terrible Lamia with my potion, and now you shall help me with my quest. I need you to travel to a far-away land, find the infamous seer and prophet Zarqa’ al-Yamama, and bring me her eyes. Yes, that’s right, her eyes. Do this for me, Heroes, and I will consider your favor to me fulfilled. After all, Heroes are true to your word, are they not?”

Without another glance, Baba Yaga turned and left the Heroes in stunned silence. What will they do? They can’t possibly fulfill her gruesome task, but how else will they keep their word to this powerful witch? The only way to know for sure is to Pre-Register for next year, and see for yourself.

We look forward to seeing our Heroes for our exploration into Arabic and Syrian ancient folklore for our 2019 Wizards & Warriors season, and we are excited to be working with our new Cultural Consultant, Alma Richeh, the Executive Director of the Center for Arabic Culture in creating a world to remember!
