30 Prophecies    Articles  (Resource)   (Game Mastering)

Rescue the Prince

       By: Cheka Man

It is traditional for two warlike countries to each give their first-born royal prince as a hostage to each other to prevent war. One of the princes has been murdered, and the PCs have a few days to rescue the prince in the other country to save him from being executed and a bloodthirsty war from breaking out.
