his is an RPcA` Network scenario for the LUNcLONS &
LRAcONS` game. Most sanctioned events delegate a
fourhour time block for each round of this scenario, with
actual playing time will around three hours. 1he rest of the
time is spent in preparation before game play, and reward dis
tribution and scoring after the game. 1he following guide
lines are here to help you with both the preparation and vot
ing segment of the game. Read this page carefully so that you
know and can communicate to your players the special
aspects of playing an RPcA scenario.
PKPAKATICN
irst print this scenario. 1his scenario was created to support
doublesided printing, but printing it single sided works as
well. 1here is enough room along the inside margin to bind
the adventure, if you desire.
Read this entire adventure at least once before running
the event amiliarize yourself with any special rules, spells, or
equipment presented in the adventure. It may help to high
light particularly important passages.
When you run an RPcA L&L adventure we assume
that you have access to the following books. the Iicycr's
IcnJoeel, the Lungcen \cstcr's GuJc, and the \enstcr
\cnuci. We also assume that you have a set of dice ,at least
one d, do, d8, d+o, d+i, and dio), some scrap paper, a pen
cil, an RPcA scoring packet, and your sense of fun. It's also
a good idea to have a way to track movement during com
bat. 1his can be as simple as a pad of graph paper and a pen
cil, as handy as a vinyl grid map and chits, or as elaborate as
resin dungeon walls and miniatures.
Instruct the players either to prepare their characters
now, or wait until you read the introduction, depending on
the requirements of the scenario described in the introduc
tion.
Keep in mind that you must have at least three players
,not counting the LM), for the game session to be a sanc
tioned RPcA event. You cannot have more than six players
participating in the game.
Once you are ready to play, it is handy to instruct each
player to place a nametag in front of him or her. 1he tag
should have the player's name at the bottom, and the char
acter's name, race, and gender at the top. 1his makes it eas
ier for both the players and the LM to keep track of who is
playing what character.
1he players are free to use the game rules to learn about
equipment and weapons their characters are carrying. 8ut,
as the LM, you can bar the use of even core rulebooks dur
ing certain times of play. or example, usually the players
are not free to consult the LUKGLCK \As1LR's GuJc when
confronted with a trap or hazard, or the \enstcr \cnuci
when confronted with a monster.
1ext that appears in shaded boxes is player informa
tion, which you may read aloud or paraphrase as appropri
ate. 1ext in sidebars contains important LM notes, for you,
offering insight to issues particular to the adventure.
Moster and nonplayer character ,NPc) statistics are pro
vided with each encounter in abbreviated form. ull
moster statistics for standard monsters are provided in the
\enstcr \cnuci, while statistics for unusual monster and
unique individuals are profiled in the Appendix at the end
of the adventure. You should review all of these statistics
before the game starts to refresh you memory of the crea
tures' abilities.
SCCKINC
After the players have completed the scenario or the time
allotted to run the scenario has run out, the players and LM
score the game. 1he RPcA has three ways to score its
games. consult your convention coordinator to determine
which method to use for this scenario.
+Ketetc scerng. 1he players write their names and
RPcA numbers on the scoring packet grid. You fill in the
top of the grid. 1hat is all. No one is rated. 1his method is
used for people who are just playing for fun.
:Icrtci scerng. 1he players rate the game master and
the scenario on their player voting sheet, and provide per
sonal information, but don't vote for other players. 1he
game master rates the scenario and completes personal and
event information, but does not rate the players as a team or
vote for players. 1his method is used when there is no com
petition, but the event coordinator wants information on
how the game masters are performing, or the game
master wants feedback on his or her own performance.
Vetng. Players and game masters complete the entire
packet, including voting for best player. If this method is
used, be sure to allow about +,io minutes for the players to
briefly describe their characters to the other players, and
about ,+o minutes for voting. 1his method is used when
the players want to know who played the best' amongst
the group, or when the adventure is run in tournament for
mat with winners and prizes.
When using voting, rank the players in order of your
voting choice while they are completing their forms, so
that you are not influenced by their comments on your
abilities. It's a good idea to have the players vote while you
determine treasure and experience awards for the scenario.
After voting, give the Scoring Packet to your event
coordinator.

T
his is a LIVINc cRLYHAWK Adventure. As a LIVINc
adventure it is expected that players bring their own
characters with them. If players do not have a LIVINc
cRLYHAWK character generated, get a copy of the current
LIVINc cRLYHAWK character generation guidelines, and a
character sheet from your convention coordinator or the
RPcA Web site, and then have any players without a char
acter create one. Once all players have a LIVINc cRLYHAWK
character, play can begin.
Along with the other materials that you are assumed to
have in order to run a L&L game, it is also recommended
that you have a copy of the LIVIKG GRLYIAVK Gc:cttccr.
LIVINC CKYHAwK LVLS
CI PLAY
8ecause players bring their own characters to LIVINc cRLY
HAWK games, this adventure's challenges are proportioned
to the average character level of the character participating in
the adventure. 1o determine the Average Party Level ,APL).
+) Letermine the character level for each character
participating in the adventure.
i) If characters bring animals that have been trained for
combat ,usually war horses and riding dogs), other than those
brought by virtue of a class ability ,i.e., animal companions,
familiars, paladin's mounts, etc.) use the following chart to
determine the number of levels you add to the sum above.
Add each character's animals separately. A single character
may only bring four or fewer animals of this type, and animals
with different cRs are added separately.
cR + i
+/ and +/o o o o +
+/ and +/i o o + +
+ + + i
i i ,
, o
, o /
) Sum the results of + and i, and divide by the number of
characters playing in the adventureround up.
) If you are running a table of six Pcs, add one to that
average.
8y following these four steps, you will have determined the
APL. 1hroughout this adventure, APLs categorize the level of
challenge the Pcs will face. APLs are given in evennumbered
increments. If the APL of your group falls on an odd number,
ask them before the adventure begins whether they would
like to play a harder or easier adventure. 8ased on their choice,
use either the higher or the lower adjacent APL.
APL also affects the amount of experience you may gain
at the end of an adventure. If your character is three character
levels or more either higher or lower than the APL that this
adventure is played at playing at, that character will receive
only half of the experience points awarded for the adventure.
1his simulates the fact that either your character was not as
challenged as normal, or relied on help by higherlevel char
acters to reach the objectives.
Ketc. LIVINc cRLYHAWK adventures are designed for APL
i and higher. 1hree or four, or sometimes even five +stlevel
characters may find difficulty with the challenges in a LIV
INc cRLYHAWK adventure. If your group is APL + there
are three things that you can do to help even the score.
+) Attempt to create a table of six +stlevel characters,
or try to enlist higherlevel characters to play at that table.
i) Advise characters to buy riding dogs to help pro
tect them, and fight for them. All riding dogs are considered
trained to attack. Pcs who want their dog to attack they must
succeed at a Handle Animal or charisma check ,Lc +o).
ailure indicates that the animal will not attack that round.
1his is a free action ,spoken command) that may be attempt
ed each round. If an animal loses half or more hp in a single
round it flees, unless another check is successful.
) A group of APL + adventurers who desire an extra
hand can 'enlist an iconic.' 1he stats for the +stlevel versions
of 1ordek, Mialee, Lidda and Jozan are given at the end of
each adventure. 1he group may pick one of these characters
to joint them on this adventure. 1he LM controls that NPc.
TIN UNITS AND UPKP
1his is a standard oneround core adventure, set in the city
of creyhawk. All characters pay two 1ime Units to partici
pate in the adventure. Adventure's Standard Upkeep costs
i gp. Rich Upkeep costs +oo gp, and Luxury Upkeep costs

ADVNTUK SUNNAKY
AND 8ACKCKCUND
Once a mighty power on the face of Oerth, 1harizdun had
countless followers, and literally hundreds of temples where
he was worshipped openly. However, 1harizdun's bid for
destruction of the current universe met with bitter failure
and the other gods imprisoned him, hoping to lock away his
evil for all time. Without their deity, his followers dropped
off, many switched, and began to worship other deities, who
though evil, were somewhat less powerful. His temples
were destroyed, and many disappeared, driven from the
land by the combined might of the servitors of 1harizdun's
jailers. 1here were those devoted few however, who
remained faithful to their dark god, and worked for the day
that they might release him from his eternal prison,
unleashing him upon Oerth to wreak destruction, decay,
and insanity upon those who oppose him once more.
One great effort was in the initial resurrection of the
original 1emple of Llemental Lvil, and though nearly suc
cessful, the efforts of a noble few, stopped 1harizdun's cler
ics from effecting a complete resurrection of their god.
Recently, however, some say that the temple rises again,
attracting 1harizdun's dark followers, who would see their
master free. As they have strove so long and hard, some part
of their deity's power has resurfaced in the world, and while
their main efforts have been concentrated in a very specific
location, other, somewhat lesser shrines and temples have
reawakened to 1harizdun's dark power.
One such shrine exists just outside the city of creyhawk,
buried beneath the cairn Hills. Its ancient halls have
become rekindled with great evil. ire and earth have come
together in this place as an infernal xorn, awakened from its
long sleep began tunneling once more deep beneath the sur
face, causing a series of minor earthquakes that opened up a
fissure in the hills, creating a passage back into the temple.
Within the temple, a reservoir of magma has arisen from an
elemental node located therein, releasing thoqqua's into the
structure as well. 1he thoqquas have begun to feed on veins
of gemstones that the xorn has incidentally brought to the
surface as it reclaims its home beneath the shrine. 1he
newly awakened evil of 1harizdun's ancient shrine has
attracted the attention of all manner of fell creatures as its
essence begins to permeate the very stone that surrounds its
structure.
Vadris, a devout cleric of Pyremius came to call when
his divinations revealed a well of great evil in the area.
ormerly a soldierforhire, Vadris saw the potential for a
great temple to his fiery god, and has, in the wake of a small
group of adventurers who only discovered what they
thought was a gem mine, begun to work on reconsecrating
the entire area in the name of Pyremius. 1he process has
been slow however, as he contends with the dangerous crea
tures that are attracted to the evil as he was.
Several members of this party of adventurers traveled
with their knowledge, and the hopes of staking a claim to
this undiscovered gem mine to the city of creyhawk, where
they planned to notify the proper authorities, and stake a
claim. In the mean time, they left several of their compan
ions behind to guard the mine from possible claim jumpers,
or looters. 1hese poor souls fell victim to Vadris, who assas
sinated them in the night, and then animated their corpses
to do his bidding. 1hose who made it back to the city dis
covered that mineral rights this side of the cairn Hills are
property of the city of creyhawk. Mayor Nerof casgul did
however, pay them well to give him information of the
mine's whereabouts and draw a map for him. Additionally,
he promised to send out a team of surveyors immediately,
who would not only take stock of the mining potential, but
would send their comrades back into the city as well. Hiring
a group of experienced dwarven miners, Mayor casgul sent
them out as promised. However, once the dwarves got there,
they too fell victim to Vadris and his newly acquired min
ions.
It has been almost two weeks now, and the report that
Mayor casgul expected from his survey team is long over
due. He has grown concerned, more for the potential loss of
resources than the actual welfare of the dwarves, but con
cerned nonetheless. He is currently looking for a few
expendable new employees to coerce into checking up on
the dwarves for as little pay as possible. Adventurers are
much cheaper than Miners' Union fees.
Lncounter +. corporal Hook
1he characters find themselves caught in the predicament
of being held accountable for the murder of a thug who tried
to steal from them.
Lncounter i. What's Yours is Mine
As the characters reach the cairn Hills, they find the path
the dwarf surveyors took with little problem. Krenshar and
howlers wait in a cave near by. 1hey are very hungry, and
attack the characters just as they reach this site. 1hey are
somewhat burned as they have been driven off by the tho
qquas, which is why they didn't eat the dwarves.
Lncounter . It's a Mine, Man
1he Xorn that started the chain of events, which both
spilled the gems into temple complex and opened the
chasm's entrance and still rumbles through the earth near
by. As the characters traverse the complex, they are con
stantly reminded of its presence due to the rumbling and
dropping earth around them, even during other encounters,
although they may mistake it for a simple earthquake.
1he xorn, however, is not as it once was having been
affected by the renewal of the presence of 1harizdun. It is
now a fiendish xorn who lusts not only for earth, but also for
blood as well. He approaches the characters as they enter the
crevasse, and acting like one of its more peaceful 'neutral'
brethren, it explains to the characters that he saw some
dwarves come this way, but that he doesn't know what
became of them. He encourages the characters to investi
gate further. 1he xorn hopes that the characters 'take care' of
Vadris for him, as he desires to retake the temple in his dark

master's name, without a fight.
Lncounter . ire Worms
Here the characters encounter a small group of thoqquas,
who, attracted by the elemental xorn, and the gems in the
area, have made a residence out of this large cave. As they
burrow for food, the cave has grown progressively larger.
Lncounter ,. Oops!
1he characters traverse a zigzag hallway, encountering traps
along the way. Some set by Vadris, and one very nefarious
trap set by 1harizdun's clerics of old.
Lncounter o. chill Reception
1he characters discover the final fates of the dwarf miners as
they encounter their incorporeal undead forms that are not
so restful.
Lncounter /. 8oiling Point
1his is the final showdown with Vadris, a nearmad cleric of
Pyremius who sees the characters for what they really are,
pawns in the game of the dark god 1harizdun himself.
1he Lwarves' 1ale
1he mining group consisted of an old foreman, i
guards/carriers, and , expert miners/surveyors. Here tells
the order of events in their fate. It is included in case any of
the dwarves ,living or dead) is questioned and for general
fun.

i. Lwarves celebrate job in tavern, talk about the
job. 8ard overhears and writes information down in
hopes of getting a new song out of it. Sees the map as
well.
. 8ard makes it to the cave site before dwarves and
encounters the krenshar and howlers alone. 1he
howlers take the body and possessions into cave and
are busy eating. Krenshar get one foot for their trou
bles.
. Lwarves arrive and find only one krenshar who
attacks them and scares them so they run immediately
into the main cave

sageway, use guiderope, hang lanterns, or other equip
ment.
o. Lwarves find thoqqua room and begin testing the
gems and setting up mining equipment. One miner
,who was bitten by the krenshar) and one guard
remain here to begin work. 1he others continue for
ward to examine the gems and strange rock further in.
/. 1hoqquas arrive through the floor and separate
the two groups. cuard is killed instantly. Injured
miner escapes back out but an earthquake caused by
the xorn causes rocks to fall on him on one of his own

forward. Lwarven Leath 1oll ,LL1). i
8) Lwarves run into pit trap, which slides them into
the clyph containing the Mark of Justice. 1he other
dwarven guard receives the mark. 1he foreman lands
wrong inside the pit and is trapped within when the
trap closes while everyone else continues running for
ward from fright. LL1.

are easily surprised. 1wo miners are slain by touch
attacks and spawn new undead controlled by the origi

the door tight, but are easily subdued by Vadris. He tor
tures them with fire and blade, thinking them to be
1harizdunrelated. He decides to use them as sacrifices
to his god and burn them in oil. One of them dies on

If there are any characters that won't perform the task, then
the mayor shakes his head sadly and leaves the room. After
a few minutes four wellequipped guards come into the
room to take the uncooperative characters. 1hey remove
their weapons first and then carry them back to jail. Once in
jail the character,s) is stripped of all items and left there. 1he
mayor comes into the area and tells the jailed character that
if he or she changes their mind, just let the guards know. If
the character eventually agrees, then let him out of jail and
send him on his way to catch up with the others. If the char
acter never agrees to do the job, then they remain in jail for
a year. Such is the price for both snubbing the mayor and
being able to testify against him.

food and water, gives them a map and has horses prepared

1he trip to the mine takes a day to complete on horseback,

scare the characters by pulling back the skin on their faces.
At higher APLs more howlers come out of the cave up on
the hill one round after the initial attack, in order to help
bring down the characters. All of the creatures have been
scorched on some part of their body.
1he creatures came to this area a week ago, howlers
drawn to the evil of the temple within, and the krenshar just
scavenging for food. All were driven away from the entrance
by the thoqqua, hence the scorch marks, and now neither
goes near the entrance. 1he howlers, instead of eating the
krenshar, found them useful in sniffing out and then scar
ing more tasty prey, so that their dinner puts up less of a
struggle. 1he krenshar themselves are just starving and
know better not to attack a howler even though the howlers
keep taking their food. Unfortunately the howler,s) won't
let them leave.

bone can be found. In the howler cave there are the chewed
up remains of a human bard. He came wandering out here
looking for a story to sing about, but the howlers made a
quick meal of him and tossed the krenshar a bone' to keep
them alive. 1he bard's possessions lie about the cave, and
include ,o gp, a smashed golden lute ,mended value , gp,

1his is the fiendish xorn who has claimed the temple area.
He is very powerful and could easily kill the characters.
However, at the moment, he is more interested in finding
out who the characters are, and whom they work for. 1he
xorn is working against Vadris, the cleric of Pyremius who
has set up shop here, and is thinking that he might use the
characters to rid himself of this pesky human. Assuming
that the characters don't attack the creature out of hand, he
talks with them.

Any character that makes a successful Liplomacy check ,Lc

to simply fumble through with whatever questions they
come up with on their own.
If the characters attack, the xorn laughs heartily, caus
ing another minor rumble and then starts talking to the
characters, asking them who they are once more. He does
not attack. If they continue their onslaught, the xorn leaves.

1he xorn is actually guessing at why the characters are here.
He knows and dislikes Vadris, the cleric and sees the char
acters as his chance to get rid of Vadris. He suspected the
dwarves were in league with Vadris and at first thought the
characters were too. He now realizes that not to be true, but
uses the story of the dwarves to lead the characters further
in.
When the characters are finished asking questions or
say goodbye, the xorn moves on.

Ketc. It is not necessary for the characters to complete
this adventure in a single day. It is perfectly all right for
them to retreat, heal up and come back. 1he encounters are
scaled to be tough, so don't worry about the timeline so
much. If the characters come into the caverns and have
some kind of effect, like killing some or all of the thoqquas,
Vadris notices, and makes preparations for visitors. He is
expecting them.

1his chamber is home to a trio of thoqquas that were lured
to this complex by the xorn. 1hinking to protect 1harizdun's
temple, the xorn brought large quantities of rich mineral
deposits for the thoqqua's to feed on. He did not expect
Vadris would use his clerical influence over creatures of fire
to befriend them.
1he nine foot tall creature mentioned is a troll that was
this cavern's previous occupant. He was slain by the com
bined attack of the thoqquas, and is nothing more than a
charred husk. Apparently the miners came this way and
encountered the thoqquas themselves, but most managed to
make it through into the next dungeon section. 1he other
two were unfortunately cut off. Any character who makes a
successful 1rack check ,Lc +o), or a successful Search check
,Lc +,) notices a trail of blood that leads from this room to
the next.
creatures. 1he thoqquas are wormlike monsters with a
body hot enough to melt solid rock. It has a choleric mood
and a foul temper. A thoqqua's sinuous body is segmented
like an earthworm's and glows with orange white heat.
1hese particular thoqquas have come to think of this cavern
as home, and are quite territorial, allowing only the xorn and
Vadris free passage. As the characters enter the chamber, the
thoqquas move to attack immediately, attempting to sneak
up on the characters using Move Silently/Hide. Have the
characters make opposed Listen and Spot checks against the
thoqquas' Move Silently and Hide checks to see if they are
surprised. If any character fails to hear and see the thoqquas,
then they are surprised, and the first round of combat con
sists only of partial actions.

1actics. 1he thoqquas aren't particularly savvy tacticians
when it comes to combat. However, they do know the value
of ganging up on single opponents, and attempt to catch sin
gle characters in flanking positions. Additionally, if any
given thoqqua is flanked, it won't hesitate to burrow into the
floor or a wall, in order to gain a better position from which
to attack the characters. 1hoqquas are particularly fond of
bursting out of solid stone in order to catch characters
unaware and flatfooted.
1reasure. Assuming the characters defeat the thoqquas,
and take some time searching the cavern, they find loose,
uncut gems in small piles, just waiting to be picked up.
1hese are placed here daily by the xorn in order to keep the
thoqquas in this area. 1he xorn gets them from the walls
here and other in other parts of the caves. 1he collective
value of the uncut gems is given here ,per character). If the
characters get back to town, Nerof casgul pays for them.
1his is of course, a fraction of their finished value.

Levelopment. 1he xorn is not particularly pleased if the
characters slay the thoqquas. Lspecially after all the effort
the creature has been expending in the care and feeding of
the creatures. However, if the characters succeed in remov
ing the 'upstart' cleric of Pyremius, the xorn considers it a
small price to pay, since the cleric had begun taking over the
thoqquas anyway.

while in this hallway, the characters suffer a -i morale
penalty to saving throws, attack rolls, ability checks, skill

1here are three alcoves in this zigzagging hallway. All
three contain ornate iron candelabras with blood red can
dles, all glowing with cold flames. If any of the candles or
torches is removed from this hallway, the magic that keeps
them alight ceases to function.
1raps. In addition to the emotion ,despair) effect in this
hallway, a pair of traps, one simple and one not are in this
hallway. irst, the simple trap involves the torch sconces.
Any character that attempts to remove a continual torch
from one of the sconces finds the task easy enough, except
that Vadris has gone through and placed contact poison on
each one of them.

In addition to the poisoned sconces, a most insidious trap
resides in the hall floor, left by the clerics of 1harizdun.
8asically, the entire twenty feet of floor tilts forward, mak
ing it likely that multiple characters slide down the steep
slide formed into the pit wall that has a rather nasty glyph on
it.
1here is a point in the hallway when the weight on one
side of a balance point ,as indicated on the map) is greater,
the entire thing tilts, dropping the characters down the
slide. At this point, the ramp locks in place. In order to get
out of the pit, the characters only need climb up the ramp
,Lc +o) and as their total weight passes the trigger point, the
ramp lowers, reforming the passage into a normal hall. If
even one character remains in the pit, the ramp does not
reset.
Now, while everyone that falls in takes damage from the
fall ,roll separately for each character), only the first charac
ter to hit the wall at the bottom is affected by the glyph.
Once the glyph is set off, it remains inert for one day before
the evil of 1harizdun seeps back in to reset the magic trap.
1he old dwarf foreman fell down here and somehow
became trapped underneath the sliding floor when it reset
itself. He is still down here, dead from injuries, suffocation,
and starvation. He is also right underneath the floor when it
comes down and thus gets squashed by the weight.

As the characters enter this area, anyone who does not have
their eyes covered must make a successful Will save ,Lc +,)
or find themselves momentarily entranced by the pulsating
red veins in the black marble walls. 1his effect is like the
Jc:c spell ,only there is no limit to the number of hit dice a
creature may possess and still be affected), and only holds
the attention of those who fail the saving throw for one
round. However, this is long enough for the undead
denizens here to attack dazed characters by surprise.
contained in this area are the undead remains of two of
the dwarven surveyors that Nerof casgul sent to check the
mine out in the first place. 1he undead creature that slew
the two dwarves and turned them resides here as well. 1he
moan is coming from the two dwarven undead who float

lifelessly over their remains and old possessions mourning


the loss of their life and, more importantly to them, their
stuff. 1hey are located in the lower right corner of the far
right hall.
As the characters enter this area and make their Will
saves, the undead creature that killed the dwarves emerges
from the wall to attack them, targeting dazed characters if
possible. It then commands the dwarven undead, who must
do its bidding, to attack as well
A successful Spot check ,Lc +) reveals that the two
undead are indeed about the size of a dwarf. If the undead
beings fought are spectres they definitely look like dwarves
with only mist for legs, while the main spectre resembles a
gnarled old man.

1actics. 1he main undead uses the walls and such to its
advantage, moving in and out of the walls, to gain flanking
position, catch characters flatfooted, and whatever other
combat advantage that you may come up with during the
course of the battle. 1he dwarven undead, being more used
to passageways, still prefer to move down the corridors to
attack the characters. 1hey definitely do not stay in one
place for long.
1reasure. 1he possessions, which may be found as
describe above, consist mainly of about +oo feet of silk rope,
three climber's kits, and a masterwork surveyor's tool kit,
which has tools necessary for sampling from a potential
mine. Also among the possessions is a journal of their expe
dition, written in Lwarven. It recounts the hiring by the
mayor, the trip here, the single Krenshar attacking them
and scaring them inside, the marking of the X's, and the
finding of gems. 1his is actually a valuable tome for miners

At this point, combat ensues. Vadris has become paranoid to
the point of insanity, and continually babbles things like
My mighty lord will defeat 1harizdun' and 1his temple is
mine, do you hear, MINL! MINL!' and on and on. Resting
atop the burning oil is a fire elemental that moves to attack
the characters as Vadris does. Vadris summoned the crea
ture when he heard the characters beating down the doors
and so it only remains for a limited number of rounds.
check Vadris's stats for further information.
When Vadris first gained entrance into the temple, he
found the trappings of the dark god 1harizdun, and while he
has removed those, he is fearful that the resurgence of ele
mental power in the area may attract the attention of
1harizdun's clerics. 1he characters may think that Vadris is
crazy, but Vadris truly thinks that they are unwitting ser
vants of the dark god come to reclaim the temple for him.
He just won't come out and say as much.

1he dwarves are all that remains of the dwarven mining
party. 8oth are alive, yet extremely weak, having been tor
tured and bled here for a number of days. 1hey have i hp
each remaining. 1he ropes that secure them hold them io
feet above the boiling oil and reach a hook on the other side
of the altar near Vadris. 1he two rooms beyond are Vadris'
personal quarters and a torture chamber. In the torture
chamber is the last remaining dwarf, hooked into a device,
which sprays fire in his face and clamps his hands in spikes.
He has unfortunately expired, his eyes completely burned
out of his head.

Assuming the characters make it out alive, they now have a
lot of things to tell the mayor if they go back to creyhawk.
1hey also have a lot of proof. As they leave the area the rum
bling of the xorn appears nearby and breaks through the
wall. 1he xorn eagerly gobbles up the body of the cleric,
using its sharp teeth to mince the man into tiny pieces
which are soon excreted out the back of its end, as it does
with rock. If the characters are still around by this time, the
xorn says, Yeu hctc Jenc nc c scrtcc e( rcnetng ths tcnt (ren
ny henc, uhch I uii rcncnocr. neu ge.' 1he xorn then dis
appears into the ground, even if the characters try to attack
it.
1he mayor notes everything the characters say when
they return, especially the regarding the xorn. He then pays
the characters according to the following scale. 1he mayor is
quite generous when told useful information. 1he gold

Luring an adventure, characters encounter treasure, usually
finding it in the possession of their foes. Lvery encounter
that features treasure has a treasure' section within the
encounter description, giving information about the loot,
coins, and magic items that make up the encounter's treas
urer.
1he loot total is the number of gold pieces each charac
ter gains if the foes are plundered of all their earthly posses
sions. Looting the bodies takes at least +o minute per every
, enemies, and if the characters cannot take the time to loot
the bodies, they do not gain this gold. If you feel it is rea
sonable that characters can go back to loot the bodies, and
those bodies are there ,that is., not carted off by dungeon
scavengers, removed from the scene by the local watch, and
so on), characters may return to retrieve loot. If the charac
ters do not loot the body, the gold piece value for the loot is
subtracted from the encounter totals given below.
1he coin total is the number of gold piece each charac
ter gains if they take the coin available. A normal adventur
ing party can usually gather this wealth in a round or so. If
for some reason they pass up this treasure, the coin total is
subtracted from the encounter totals given below.
Next, the magic items are listed. Magic item treasure is
the hardest to adjudicate, because they are varied and
because characters may want to use them during the adven
ture. Many times characters must cast Jcnt(y, cnciy:c
Jucencr, or similar spell to determine what the item does,
and how to activate it. Other times they may attempt to use
the item blindly. If the magic item is consumable ,a potion,
scroll, magic bolts, etc.) and the item is used before the end
of the adventure, its total is subtracted from the adventure
totals below.
Once you have subtracted the value for unclaimed
treasures from each encounter add it up and that is number
of gold pieces a characters total and coin value increase at
the end of the adventure. Write the total in the cp cained
field of the adventure certificate. 8ecause this is a core
adventure, taking place in a region not administered by a
Regional 1riad, characters cannot spend extra 1ime Units to
practice professions or create items immediately after the
adventure, so this total is not be modified by other circum
stances.
