Dead or Alive, Preferably Dead!

By:

The havoc of war has left many rural communities lawless, the local authorities either slain or fleeing!

Recently a gang of bandits raided two small villages, stealing livestock and goods, even taking some of the womenfolk as hostages before fleeing into the local swamp.

The county officials have little time to deal with a comparatively minor matter, and so the PCs are deputised by the legal authority in the nearest city to hunt down the outlaws, rescue the hostages, and enact immediate justice on the criminals.


Travel in the Swamp is quite difficult, but finding the outlaws camp is not.

The problem is, they are all dead, and there is no sign of the hostages!

What happened to them, and does it have anything to do with the ruin the PCs see further ahead in the swamp?

Travelling to the ruin, the PCs discover an old crypt, broken open and a plain stone coffin, only recently opened!

I must confess, I do really like the idea, although the sub left me wanting more. Perhaps this can be expanded upon?

Okay, Dr. Broken Record clears his throat...
This needs expanding upon. Lots of expanding upon. As it is, put it in as an idea, not a full submission. If thouroughly worked through, pimped up, made sexy and seasoned with some novel twists, it could be great. Make into a fully fledged adventure compendium, like you could buy in paperback back in the olden days, and I will applaud you. As it is, it really doesn´t do much for me.

I see that as with my other submission, this is too short for the tastes of this site's members.

I will see what I can do, perhaps you would like to help me expand it?

The Earthblood Warrens are a series of caverns in which dwell men who live around the Earthblood Vein, a river of magma. They use the magma from the Earthblood Vein to warm and light their homes and cook their food. The Warrens are several miles long, stretching along the banks of the Earthblood Vein, and since nobody wants to walk that far, the Earthbloodmen capture large, magma-swimming serpents, which they train and ride.
