Evil mischief with gremlins    Locations  (City)   (Any)

My group had to locate the hidden entrance to an abandoned Gnomish city.  They searched for two days before they found what they thought was the entrance.  It was the entrance…., to Kiddieland, the Gnomish equivalent of a modern funhouse for children.  Evil, nasty super-gremlins had infested the place and had warped much of the magic there to terrorize suckers, er, characters who found the way in.

The Trial    Plots  (Discovery)   (Single-Storyline)

This adventure is based around a witchcraft trial. The (innocent) witches have to adventure around trying to collect evidence and witnesses to prove their innocence, which is surprisingly difficult when people slam their doors and window-shutters out of suspicion whenever you hove into view. The prosecutors have to get witnesses who can testify to having seen the witches at their satanic practices.
