THE CURSE OF XANATHON
This module is for use with the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS@Expert Set, which continues and expands the D&D@Basic rules. This module cannot be played without the D&D@Basic and Expert rules.
STOP! If you intend to be a player in this module, do not read any further. The following information is for the DM only. Knowledge of the contents o the module will spoil the adventure f and excitement for the players. NOTES FOR THE DUNGEON MASTER The Curse o Xanathon is an unusual module, in that much o the players’actions will be in the f f form o detective work, as they try to discover clues to the problem plaguing the town. Once f they have located these clues, they will have to decide on a proper course of action. If they make wrong decisions, they could conceivably waste much time and obtain no results. You, as the DM, will need a careful touch to keep the players on the right track without making solutions and objectives too obvious. Much information is included in the various scenarios, and astute players will no doubt be able to determine the proper course o action at each stage o the adventure. If a group o players is f f f unfamiliar with this type o detective game, they may become frustrated or disinterested. The f DM is encouraged to offer additional clues whenever these would seem to be necessary. This can be handled in a number o ways. For example, the High Priest o Forsetta, who moves f f around in a beggar’s disguise, is introduced in Scenario 1. The DM should feel free to use this character whenever necessary as a source o information and guidance to the party. He will f never join in any adventuring, however! Also, bartenders and tavern patrons thoughout the town may also be used as informants, generally for a price (1-6gp).Rumors flow freely at these public gathering places, and in addition to those included in the module, the DM may wish to invent some rumors o his or her own. f Before beginning play, the DM should read the module carefully and become completely familiar with it. The information that is boxed is to be read aloud to the players at the appropriate time. The material that is not boxed is for the DM’s use only and should be revealed to the players at the DM’s discretion. This module has been designed for a party of 5 to 8 characters o between the 5th and 7th levels f o experience. The party should contain at least 1dwarf, 1magic-user, 2 thieves and a goodly f number o fighters. The total o the party’s experience levels should be 35-50, with a total o 46 f f f being best. During the adventures the DM should be careful to give the player characters a reasonable chance for survival. He or she should try to be fair and impartial at all times. However, if the players should persist in taking foolhardy risks or making unwise choices, the DM should make it clear that the characters will perish unless their actions are more well thought-out. The cooperation o everyone in the party will insure that the adventures will be fun and exciting for f

The DM should try to bring all the senses into play. It not enough to simply describe what a monster looks like to the player ... the DM should describe how it sounds, what it smells like, etc. The same is true for room descriptions. The rooms are described only briefly in this module but the DM should feel free to add additional details to make the players really see the room. Enhancing the atmosphere will only add extra excitement to play o this module. f For the convenience o the DM, whenever a monster or NPC is described in the text, the game f statistics will be listed in parentheses in the following order: Monster/NPC Name (Armor Class; Hit Dice or Class/Level; hit points; Number o Attacks f per round; Damage per attack; Movement per turn (round); Save As: Class/Level; Morale; Alignment; and Abilities for NPCs, if necessary.) The following abbreviations are used: Armor Class=AC, Hit Dice=HD, Cleric =C,Dwarf =D, Magic-User=M, Thief=T, Level =#, hit points =hp, Number of Attacks =#AT; Damage =D, Movement =MV, Save As S a v e , Morale =ML; Alignment =AL; Strength S , Intelligence =I, Wisdom =W, Dexterity =D, Constitution =C, Charisma =Ch. Class/Leuel is only used for NPCs while Hit Dice is used for all other monsters. Movement in a game turn is three times the movement rate per round.

Two old temples. treacherous and hidden passes lead across the mountains to Rockhome. Sheep. and horses are all herded in the rugged country around the town. and dwarven caravans often cross these with loads of metalgoods and other dwarven crafts. fish. The duchy is part o the greater kingdom f f o Vestland. In the Old Town near the waterfront. Many taverns may be found here.* BACKGROUND Rhoona may easily be placed on continental Map M-1. Rhoona has a bustling port from which ships sail to all corners o the known world. and Rhoona is known throughout Vestland and beyond for its many fine breweries. and most o f the citizens are members o this faith.

Many people are frightened by the thought that the Duke is no longer rational. roll again until a different result is obtained. Even so. a remove curse spell is not sufficientto break it. The Ducal Guard is responsible for maintaining order in the community. the order was issued that all taxes must be paid in beer. Although currently there is a f small number o people in Rhoona from the Ethangar f Khanate. f f These descriptions are intended as aids to help the DM in describing these settings. the characters will be aware o two o the f f common rumors that circulate through the town. the town has been thrown into an uproar by several rather peculiar decrees that have originated from the f Duke’s palace. Recently. The DM should improvise the four rumors. The Curse o Xanathon Module is broken into five steps. but they know it isn’t good!

Check for these guards on the DUCAL PATROL ENCOUNTER CHART by rolling a d6. Scenario 2. Since only the very wealthy ever ride in the town. These Scenarios will be briefly introduced here in outline form and are detailed later in the module. but people are in such a fear o the Ducal Guard that no protest has been f made. The High Priest o Cretia is an emissary o the Ethangar Khanate. The DM should refer to MAP A for further detail. more rumors have been spread regarding the odd nature o the last two ducal pronouncef ments. the god o the Ethangarians. f Draco Stormsailer.

Xanathon has promf ised the ambitious captain that he will have the title o Duke when f Stephen Rhoona has been deposed. comparing the result to the RHOONIAN RUMORS TABLE to determine what these rumors are. Two or three of Draco’s most trusted lieutenants are aware o his subversion. The dwarves who are working on the palace plan to steal as much o Rhoona’s wealth as they can carry off f before returning to Rockhome. the widely-feared captain of the guard.Recently. whose very name inspires fear and awe in most Rhoonians. Any of the town locations having a detailed key and map are not detailed in this section. It is said that the Duke respects his judgement above all other advisors. a fully detailed key is impossible. and he will not part with it easily! In fact. The Ducal Guard is responsible for maintaining order in Rhoona. the players have the entire town o Rhoona in which to adventure. and discover Xanathon’s weakness. Xanathon. is a part o the plot to undermine the Duke’s authority. This has contributed to grumbling and complaining among the thirsty populace.

A roll o “6” indicates an encounter with a patrol. and little is known about the beliefs o the f faithful. the town is keyed before information concerning Scenario 1 is given. the party will have to discover his weakness before they have a chance o successfully confronting him. as well as defending it from any outside threats. as merchants and nobles struggle to maintain balance and dignity in the awkward position. Roll a d6 twice. this temple is a strange and mysterious place. by the High Priest o f Cretia. When the fighting is over. they have erected a large and elaborate temple. f 4 KEY TO RHOONA Although each o the scenarios has a specific place where informaf tion must be gathered or actions taken. He lives in the Ducal f Barracks. Xanathon has no intention of fulfilling his promise to Draco. Find map to the Shrine o f Cretia. THE PROBLEM: The problem afflicting Rhoona is a powerful curse that has been laid upon the current Duke. No one seems to know exactly what they’re up to.
