"Well, I could drop you down the hole. May be you'll find wine or wenches at the bottom." Thromdor smiles and gently elbows Grinly, then goes back to the barracks room for a more thorough search.

Thromdor mutters, "I hope there aren't 6 more shades floating around..." and shivers.


He then heads back to the entry room and waits for the others.

"Why did you have to say that? And six?" Grinly says grumpily as he follows behind looking from side to side. "You know you just jinxed us with a whole mess?"


He approaches the large door and looks at it with scorn. "Well I guess we're to this blasted thing." He sighs then chuckles as a thought comes to him, "Welp, after you Throm!"

The weight of the door initially resists your efforts.  Leaning into the door it starts moving.  Once moving, it pivots easily.  You are able to control the speed at which it opens so that it does not go crashing open.


Looking through the door, you see what can only be a temple dedicated to Vecna.  The room is 20 feet wide and 40 feet deep.  The far end of the chamber has an enormous skull carved in the wall, it's jaw open in a soundless laugh or scream.  In front of the skull is a blocky altar, of some dark stone shot through with red veins.  a pair of silver candle sticks flank the altar.  A silver pentagram dominates the center of the room.  Skeletal remains litter the floor.  Most seem to be be clad in the tattered remains of black robes.  Dark stains show in multiple places on the floor, lending the the impression that a battle was fought here.

As Thromdor enters the chamber a wave of malevolent energy, felt more than seen, pulses out from skull at the back of the room.  The piles of bones pull themselves together and animate.


Roll for initiative!

Combat Order:


Thromdor 23

Skeletons 15

Grinly 12

Niven 10


Six skeletons arise from the heaps of bone and tattered cloth scattered about the temple chamber.  Their eyes glow with a sickly green light and their jaws move in silent battle cries.

      Traveling Encounters volume 1
      Compelling 5th Edition Challenges For CR1 to CR5
      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.

      So pre-launch (I think October). Just under 2000 copies are already printed and will ship after the pledge manager closes. More supporters will be part of a second print run for January 2020. About 30US$ to ship to Canada for a softcover & pdf. Also the option exists to back in advance for the 3 follow up adventures. That seems to be at a 5$ discount from the first module.

      Sorry if I've missed seeing this one.  It's the latest KS from Agate/Studio 2.  This time it's not Esteren but the project that Iris has been working on.  It sounds like it is pretty well done in French, so this project is to finance printing of the English edition.

      Anyone here backing this one? I missed the first one, of Feyland, but there's a level where you can get both books. I don't have a ton of physical 3rd party 5e stuff so I'm down for it.
      Brave the darkness and discover Monsters of the Underworld! You'll find unusual monsters and entire societies in this strange land. You don't just have to watch your back, you have to watch out above and below as well!
      Guiding you through this dangerous world is Desmond Hawkeye, an experienced monster hunter. He'll lead you to the new monsters and remind you that we can be heroes.
