Dead or Alive, Preferably Dead!


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?

Woodland Sentry

       By: rickster

You pass through a woodland with a floor that seems remarkably clean of debris. Suddenly your attention is drawn to a twisted bit of wood by the trail side, a short broken twig with several stubs of branches along its length and most of the bark missing. When you reach it, the twig blurs and turns into a small brown lizard, caught in the middle of its body-twisting run. The little reptile darts away down the trail with impossible speed, no doubt magically enhanced, and is lost to sight in a moment. Now someone knows you are coming...
