Map 46 – Cursed Crypt

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE ! Inside the most attended temple in the city, there is a crypt where long forgotten rulers are buried. The construction is of such architectural beauty, that often nobles, important people and foreign dignitaries are invited to visit and pay respect to the rulers of past ages. The most important person buried in the crypt is Lord Pennsyl Ducardi, known to have been a king centuries ago. His sarcophagus had never been opened out of respect for the dead. One week ago an unsuspecting visitor forced open the sarcophagus’ seal. Lord Ducardi instantly reanimated as a mummy. A necromantic aura in the crypt was activated, and all the other sarcophagi opened and released undead creatures. The group of ten visitors was slain and turned into undead abominations. Father Dimitri Darev, in charge of the temple, told the city guard,…

Map 45 – Gnome Outpost

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE ! Gnomes are often disregarded as weak, due to their size or culture. But nothing is farther from the truth. Their most deadly weapon is their cunning. It is with intelligence that they can turn the tide of a battle. To protect their most important settlements in lands that are roamed by savage races like orcs, gnolls or goblins, gnomes build militarized outposts. The troops in these protective settlements is to stop invading parties of unwelcome creatures. You can use this outpost in two different ways. The PCs can attack it, along with a platoon of soldiers or the like. Or the PCs can help defend the outpost against an assaulting party. I find the second option the most fun. You can arrange an attack that comes in waves, and little by little the PCs and then gnomes double…

Map 42 – The Arcanist’s Lair

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE ! Kobolds are often underestimated and dismissed as mischievous, weak and bothersome creatures. This assumption is often true, but once in a while a kobold discovers a sliver of magic in its draconic heritage and develops magical abilities. Turdink (Mage) is such a kobold, over 7 years he has amassed some treasure and a small cult of other kobolds who revere him and consider him a messenger of the draconic gods. Turdink is smart enough to know that he’s not sacred or anything, he’s conscious of his magic power and the influence it has on others of his kind, and takes full advantage of it. He and his clan have built a lair over the years to establish themselves. The complex itself is very defensive; assaulting it unprepared has been the doom of many adventurers. Kobolds might not be strong but they are numerous and…
