A scroll of one-shot scenarios that can provide a different setting from your normal sessions.

The Idea

Occasionally every campaign slows down and your players want or need a break from the storyline they're currently travelling. Or perhaps you're in-between sections and you need to fill a session or two with something that won't horribly wreck your setting. You might even just want to throw something completely different at your PCs. Inspired by this scroll entry, this is a collection of one-shot scenarios explained with an overarching frame-story:

The rare and strange creatures known as Burrowers have temporarily connected two locations that are conceptually similar to each other. The PCs have encountered the portal at "Place #1" which leads to "Place #2", and have some reason to take a look around the new area.

What We're Looking For

Each scroll entry should contain a few pieces of information:

The Jumping-Off Point ("Place #1") - This is the location which the players encounter first, and resides in your "normal" setting. It should have a description.

The Destination ("Place #2") - This is the location that is temporarily connected by the Burrower portal to Place #1. It does not need to reside in the same world as Place #1. It should have a slightly more detailed description than Place #1, since this is where the PCs will be spending most of their time.

The Connection - This is the conceptual connection between the two locations. It can be woven into the descriptions of each location, but it needs to be present somewhere, otherwise the connection between the places will feel extremely arbitrary.

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
