A powerful demon has made it’s home in a cave near the village of Wheatclif. The dreams of villagers have been nothing but nightmares of two weeks and anyone caught outside at night has been chased untill they collapse, then maimed. With four villagers now missing limbs, the village chief is desperate when you arrive in his village.
Daerun is a reclusive Dragon-Lord, wanting to be left to himself unless his people truly need him. Many demons can be dispatched by mortals without the aid of a Dragon-Lord, and being on the edge of the Abandoned Lands means minor demon frequent the territory. If someone can bring Daerun a minor demon and ask for his help, he will listen to them and lend aid if there is need.
Now the players are set the challenge of aiding the beleagured village or leaving it to a horrifing end. The players can either wait outside for nightfall and face an unknown number of minor demons bent on chasing them and ripping parts of them off, or try to inflitrate the cave and catch a minor demon while they sleep during the day.
The demon in the cave is called Cholek and feeds off the fear and despair of the village. He is quite powerful and, besides commanding nearly a score of minor demons, can strike at any creature within sight. He will only come in to the village with his forces and dispatch all if they have hope and joy. Such a slaughter would provide him with an orgy of a banquet and sustain him untill he reached another village.
