A beehive, dormant for generations, is broken into by a band of ambitious bandits looking for a home. The bandits rebrand themselves Buzzkills, and begin terrorizing the locals. However, the Hive isn't the secure fort they thought it was, and they soon find themselves in thrall to an ancient Queen Bee Sorceress, and her resurrection is at hand. 

Can brave mouse adventurers stop the ancient queen's resurrection? Will they save the Buzzkills from the queen's hold? Or will they just take the treasure and run?
