Atelier of the Orc Champion (Vol 01 Quest 001)

Postby Pentroncius » Wednesday April 14th, 2021 5:03am

Heroes! You will travel south-east, beyond Black Fire Pass, into the Border Princes to the Black Peninsular. There you will enter the Atelier of the Orc Champion, Shozbog. He has been forging an alliance between the Blue Face Orcs and Yellow Eye Goblins. Combined these forces represent a severe threat to the Empire. You must slay Shozbog. A reward of 250 gold coins is being offered to the Hero or Heroes who succeed in this task. Tread carefully my friends.

Image

NOTES
A This chest contains 50 gold coins.
B If there are any Quest Treasurers not issued to the Players the Evil Wizard Player my grant one to the player that opens this chest, otherwise the chest is empty.
C This chest contains 50 gold coins.
D This is the Orc Champion, Shozbog. Use the Orc figure with the large sword to represent him. He has the following characteristics: Attack 4, Defend 4, Move 10, Mind 3, Body 3 When Shozbog is killed inform the players that: “Shozbog’s body falls to the floor. Dead. His lifeless corpse begins to glow and then it disappears; you suspect some foul chaos sorcery is afoot.
Entry to the dungeon is via the stairwell tile. Exit of the dungeon may be made through the stairway tile or the exit door.

Palisade of the Pyromancer (Vol 01 Quest 002)

Postby Pentroncius » Wednesday April 14th, 2021 5:20am

Loretome has revealed the location of a skilled chaos sorcerer, known only as the Pyromancer. His lair is a concealed palisade in the Black Mountains, to the south of the Empire. Until now local garrisons have struggled to keep his raiding parties at bay in the land around Steingart. You must make haste and kill the Pyromancer and his foul legions. I wish you well in your adventure, but I am concerned for you too, so take care, for there is great foreboding in the air.

Image

NOTES
A Upon entry say: “This corridor is filled with a foul black smoke that permeates the air, and makes it hard to see and breath.” The fog reduces each Player’s attack by 1 combat die. On each Evil Wizard Player’s turn all Players will loose 1 Body point. If they die they are turned to Chaos and should be replaced with a Zombie, which may move and attack immediately.
B This room is also filled with the black smoke as described in A, and has the same effects.
C The centre of this room is a bottomless pit, over which one small bridge stretches. Any character or monster who falls into the Pit dies. The Gargoyle, on the bridge, is an enchanted statue and can not be affected by magic or attack, nor can he move, and acts as a blockage, until an answer is given to the following riddle: “Never resting, never still. Moving silently from hill to hill. It does not walk, run or trot. All is cool where it is not.” Correct answer: “Sunshine”. If the correct answer is given the Gargoyle vanishes. If not he is under the Evil Wizard Player’s control, as normal.
D This is the Pyromancer. He has three of each Chaos Spell (Dominate, Mind Lock, Mind Blast). He has the following characteristics: Attack 4, Defend 4, Move 4, Mind 6, Body 5.
Upon his death the Secret Panel, marked ‘X’, may be revealed to the Players and not before (If the room has been discovered by the players add the secret panel to the dungeon. If not you should reveal the panel when a Player searches for traps or panels in the room).
E This treasure chest contains 100 gold coins.
F This treasure chest contains 100 gold coins.

The Abandoned Alcazar (Vol 01 Quest 003)

Postby Pentroncius » Wednesday April 14th, 2021 5:24am

Long ago a magician, whose name is now forgotten, took the Orb of the Dragon Whisperer. Loretome reveals that this powerful relic is hidden within a long-abandoned undercroft of an ancient fortification near the Eyrie Peak, high amongst the Grey Mountains. The ever increasing threat of the legions of chaos mean it is essential that you retrieve the orb and return it to the custody of the Empire. But be warned; the Alcazar will present many challenges to halt your quest.

Image

NOTES
A Upon entering the room say to the Players: “Inscribed on the wall is the following: ‘As easy as pi.’ You also observe that, whilst most of the flagstones are heavily worn, five seem to have numerals on them: 1s, 2 & 5s.” - You should indicate these to the Players. Players must follow the route marked by the arrows. If a player steps off a square in a direction other than that indicated by the arrow, they lose a body point.
B This door is locked. I can be opened with the key found inside the treasure chest marked ‘C’.
C These three monsters have been petrified. They can not be affected by magic, attack, nor can they move. Upon entering the room say to the Players: “The undead appear to be statues. On the wall opposite them is inscribed: “I don’t have eyes, but once I did see. I once had thoughts, now white and empty.” If a player opens any chest, but the one next to the Skeleton, the monsters awake and are under the Evil Wizard Player’s control, as normal, this immediately ends the Players’ turns.
D This cupboard contains, wrapped in a dirty rag, the Orb of the Dragon Whisperer. The Player who finds the orb should note it down on his character sheet. It may be passed between the Player’s characters. On the Evil Wizard Player’s turn any player in possession of the orb loses 1 Mind point.

Zenith of the Aubade Spawn (Vol 01 Quest 004)

Postby Pentroncius » Wednesday April 14th, 2021 5:33am

Good morning my Heroes! It is such a lovely day that I am filled with regret for I must send you into a sprawling, dark network of caves to clear out a band of monsters. Nevertheless, they have been raiding nearby villages in recent months which is tiresome. Now, though they have killed a young girl, Madeleine Hekkert, who had only seen six winters. The villagers have prevailed on the Emperor for revenge and you are the instrument of his wrath. Leave none alive.

Image

NOTES
A This treasure chest contains 250 gold coins.
B This cupboard contains a potion, allow the player to pick a card from the potions deck.
C Say to any player that searches for treasure: “Whilst you fought the gargoyle guarded with jealousy the alchemist’s workbench behind him. Unfortunately, following your attack, the bottles and equipment are smashed. Upon it you find, however, a bar of gold and an oozing pot of cottage cheese plus the remains of a piece of parchment that reads: ‘Honeydew wrong… reverse possible’.” The character may take the bar of gold worth 250 gold coins.
D This treasure chest contains a potion, allow the player to pick a random card from the potions deck.
E Beneath the throne, in a small box is a gemstone worth 100 gold coins.
F The bookshelf conceals a small hollowed-out volume that contains 10 gold coins
G On the fireplace’s mantle there is a small chest, it contains a Potion of Healing that will restore up to four lost Body points. The player should mark it on his character sheet.
H If there are any Quest Treasure cards available the Evil Wizard Player may issue one to a player otherwise they should draw a card from the Treasure deck.

Wandering Monster: 3 Orcs

N.B. If you are not playing with a deck of Potions cards you may either decide to issue a potion to the characters to note on their character sheet or let them draw a card from the Treasure deck.

Thanks for sharing this, love how each adventure has something special! The dragon orb where a hero loses 1bp per turn is genius.

You lost me with this one, and I am looking at the map and consider myself a bit of a math nerd. I think it might be a little obscure.

There was quite some discussion on the Facebook Group about this one (see here). It is a fiendish ask of players more used to finding objects and killing monsters; but a little variety never hurt anyone.

Any chance you can paraphrase that discussion a bit for those of us who don't use facebook? Like iKarith, I can't seem to correlate any pattern between the path and the clue, and get the impression that many players will probably just try and brute force it... You are looking at losing 5 BP just to run across the room, so all but the Wizard will make it across, and the Wizard can with some healing...

Verag's Reflection (Vol 01 Quest 005)

Postby Pentroncius » Tuesday April 20th, 2021 3:55am

Heroes! It is so long ago since you first came to me. When I told you of times past; of Morcar’s fall to the thrall of chaos and the path that lay before you. You have achieved much since then of course. Now, Loretome has revealed to me that the catacombs, where you undertook your first trial, then home to the fearsome gargoyle Verag, whom you defeated, are once more teaming with the forces of chaos, You must defeat whatever now resides there. Good luck!

Image

NOTES
A This is the Chaos Sorceress, Ciphior, she has no spells of her own, but may use any spell cast by the Players’ characters. She has the following characteristics: Attack 4, Defend 4, Move 6, Mind 5, Body 5
If she is killed in the room marked ‘A’ her body vanishes and is restored to 3 Body points and will reappear on the space marked ‘E’ in next to the gargoyle.
The treasure chest contains a potion, allow the player to pick a random card from the potions deck, together with 50 gold coins and a large, shiny brass key.
B This door is locked it may be opened with the brass key found in Ciphior’s laboratory (see ‘A’).
C This chest contains 250 gold coins.
D This treasure chest contains a potion, allow the player to pick a random card from the potions deck.
E The gargoyle in this room is Verog, Verag’s younger brother. He is impervious to ranged attacks and magic, but otherwise is an ordinary gargoyle.

Wandering Monster: 2 Orcs

N.B. If you are not playing with a deck of Potions cards you may either decide to issue a potion to the characters to note on their character sheet or let them draw a card from the Treasure deck.
