Demonic Eruption

By:

A large explosion was heard 4 days ago coming from the foot of the nearby mountains. Ever since then no trade wagons have come through as they usually did.

Four days have passed since the explosion. A loud bang shook the lands near and beyond Olaf's Pass. There was a plume of red smoke, reeking of brimstone, and a rain of ash and bits of stone for miles around. Perhaps a volcano erupted? If so, no one knew it was there. Did a slumbering dragon awaken? Who knows? Not I. All I know is someone needs to go out there and clear the pass. No merchant wagons haver arrived since the bang. Undoubetly, the pass is congested with rock an debris f the wagons aren't coming through. We need those supplies. The people of the Southerlands need your help. Will you go forth and at least survey the damage? Maybe bring back some breads and cheeses, at the least? Thank you, young ones. I knew the Southerlands could count on you.

It's your first real adventure. You've been itching to explore the mountains for years now. Tales of Trolls and Orcs only served to excite you more. Now you're on your way to being a hero.

 

Inspired by Demon Bang by Strolen and Ancient Gamer.

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
