Shrine of the Rat Cult

Here is another adventure in my Ruins of the Undercity campaign, played using the Labyrinth Lord rules.

Plague

Shortly after Nameera, Somteva and Zareef return to Cryptopolis the city is struck by a minor outbreak of the plague known as the Fatal Boils. People who catch the disease are afflicted with disfiguring boils and die within twelve weeks.

Nameera, Somteva and Zareef all save successfully versus death.

Fortunately none of the adventurers catch the disease.

Onzir the travelling peddler

The adventurers meet a travelling peddler named Onzir, who has travelled to Cryptopolis with a caravan from the city of Ezar to the south. He is selling potions and scrolls but is not asking for less than 200 gold pieces for any of them, so the adventurers bid him good-day and say they hope to meet him again if they are richer by the time he returns to Cryptopolis.

New party members

The adventurers go to Aliam’s Babuschs to collect the babuschs (shoes) that they ordered before going on their previous adventure. Then they search the dingy khiva shops for anyone who wants to join them for another expedition into the Undercity. They find three new party members.

Akram

Formerly a holy beggar devoted to the Red Goddess, Akram is now a cleric of that deity.

Azmi

Azmi was formerly a town crier and is now a wizard. He understands the language of flinds.

Nisma

Nisma was formerly a prostitute. After one of her clients robbed her she stole her money back from him, and discovered that she was good at getting into places. She is now a thief.

The Undercity

The adventurers go to the abandoned house near the Temple of the Red Goddess, where there is a stairway leading down into the Undercity.

All characters are moving at a rate of 30′ per turn (exploring movement).

Sentha’s Journey – Miso RPG combined with Rory’s Story Cubes

Here is a short adventure played using the basic set of Rory’s Story Cubes and Sophia Brandt’s Miso game, a minimalist solo RPG available for free on her blog.

The Setting and the Heroine

The setting is the Vedren Islands, an archipelago with a temperate climate. Hills and broadleaf forest cover most of the islands.

Sentha is a 15 year old maiden of the Trarg tribe. She lives in the village of Gev on the coast of Krelex Island. Sentha is a powerful swimmer. For many years a swimming festival has been held every summer in Gev. Villagers swim the kilometre between Gev and Swimmer’s Rock. When Sentha competed in the womens’ race this year she won the prize, an amber necklace that she wears. She wears a light tunic belted at the waist that she can swim easily in, and carries a knife.

The Dungeon of Gevdrin’s Tower – Final Expedition

One hex = six miles

Following on from the second expedition into the dungeon beneath Gevdrin’s Tower, here is the final session of this solo Labyrinth Lord dungeon crawl using Schweig’s Themed Dungeon Generator. This time one adventurer survived the dungeon. To add colour to the empty chambers within the dungeon I used the random tables for dungeon dressing from the Labyrinth Lord Advanced Edition Companion and from the Dungeons Master’s Guide (1st Edition), and then used my imagination to set the results of the rolls within the context of the dungeon.

The Adventurers

Another party of adventurers have gathered at the inn in the town of Bruld called The Wizard’s Garden to plan an expedition into the dungeon beneath the ruins of Gevdrin’s Tower, situated on Hunuf Plain to the south of Bruld. The adventurers are:

  1. Cloleas, a human sorceress
  2. Freblun, a male human warrior
  3. Jevrin, a male human thief
  4. Krandorum, a male dwarf (of the basic dwarf class of Labyrinth Lord)
  5. Lenhalna, a female half-elven cleric of Athaya the goddess of healing
  6. Mevenroth, a male elf (of the basic elf class of Labyrinth Lord).

Once again six adventurers have gathered at the inn in the town of Bruld called The Wizard’s Garden to plan an expedition into the dungeon beneath the ruins of Gevdrin’s Tower, situated on Hunuf Plain to the south of Bruld. The adventurers are:

The Dungeon of Gevdrin’s Tower – a solo Labyrinth Lord adventure using Schweig’s Themed Dungeon Generator

Bruld region PNG image.png

One hex = six miles

This is a dungeon adventure played using Schweig’s Themed Dungeon Generator, which provides the player with a template to fill in (including details for special areas, traps, treasure and encounters) which can then be used to randomly generate a dungeon during play.

The adventure ended in a Total Party Kill but I was pleased with the results; I rolled the two ‘special’ chambers that I had loaded into the template. I’ll roll up a new party to finish exploring the dungeon.

Bruld

Bruld is a large walled town of 2,600 inhabitants, ruled by a mayor and a council. Situated on the edge of the wilderness regions of the Drundorn Hills and Hunuf Plain, it is a pleasant town where oak trees grow on greens amidst the shops and houses. The town skyline is dominated by the stone hall of the town council. Other notable stone buildings are the temple of Dronlan, the god of merchants and adventurers, and the temple of Athaya, the goddess of healing.
