An OSRIC™-Compatible Adventure for a Party of 3 to 5, Levels 1–2

Something has been pillaging farms and leaving no living thing behind. Merchants have
disappeared on the roads and the Tinker now refuses to make his circuit. All of this
trouble started when a party of adventurers went to investigate the old temple on the
hill. Five adventurers went up the hill to Lilanora’s temple and never returned. Who will
follow those foolhardy five and discover what danger lies beneath the temple ruins?
