“You folks can help, yes? We are at our wit’s end.”

Sumgan, the acting abbot of Het Thamsya, nervously plays with the prayer beads in her hand. You see that the beads are worn and lustrous from years of use.

Stirring the Hornet’s Nest at Het Thamsya is a new TTRPG release that sees players explore the temple of Het Thamsya, the school dedicated to the Automata Path of Enlightenment. 

The abbot of Het Thamsya is in grave danger. He has been in meditation for 10 years and a nest of giant wasps has taken over the temple. Help rescue him from a temple of automatons, giant wasps and human-wasp monstrosities. But don't wake him up! 

A Southeast Asian inspired robot, looks like it's designed after a tortoise.
A tortoton, an automaton guarding the temple.

Will the abbot survive? Will the temple still stand? Will there be hornet inspired mecha? You decide!
