Pentwell's book


This book’s origin’s are unknown, it’s owner, Pentwell, an old hermit gnome living of the coast of Felldart found it one day on the shoreline, floating in the tide.  Then, he learned that the book fortold what was to happen.

The old hermit was a sculking figure, small and ugly like most gnomes.  Pentwell was his name.  He lived on a rocky outcropping in what looked like a house made of mud and clay.  One day, when his food reserves were dwindling, Pentwell went fishing.  Instead of fish, he found a book floating in the tide, Reaching down to pick up the large black book, he noticed strange writing on it.  (i)livre de future sombre(i)  Not knowing the origine of these letters, yet he needed not fear the language barrier, the minute his fingers touched the leather cover, the letters changed to spell (i)Book of dark futur(i)  Petwell was not stupid, he knew the book was magical.  He then brought it to his home.  Sitting down to read the first page, it was blank.  All the pages were blank.  “I wish I knew where this camefrom.” declared Pentwell outloud.  Then, something began to appear on the page, it showd an old man with a long silvery beard writing a book on a table.  Pentwell turned the page quickly.  On the next page showed the old man leting the book go into the ocean.  Pentwell figured that this must be the great mage Leviadan.  The old wizard must of known who this book was to go to, he knew that pentwell should find it, for that was Leviadan’s way, to know before something came to pass.  Pentwell kept the book, learned of wars, horrors and peaces yet to come.  Soon he did not know what was present and what was future.

A bit more text and explanation will fill out this basically really good idea. This one has a great potential.

This one does have a gem inside it!

Should have posted it to Flesh it Out so we could help strengthen it some and fixed all your spelling to make it a more rounded submission. Great increase in useability though elfkin, great job.

The Needy Dead

       By: Murometz

The PCs are hired by undead to rid their village community of an invasive necromancer.

As the PCs make their way, wherever they are going, they spot two zombies. The zombies approach but before the cleric can turn them, one starts throwing coins at the PCs while the other pleads with them, unable to pronounce the letters "L" and "H" due to some missing gums. "Peeth 'arm...coin...peeth issen!"

If the PCs don't slaughter the two zombies immediately, they will eventually come to learn that the two were chosen to find help by their brethren. The zombies want to hire the PCs to rid their community of an unwanted pest. An opportunistic necromancer.

Apparently, a small benign community of undead have taken residence in an abandoned village, living out their undeath as peacefully as the undead can. Recently, a malicious necromancer has invaded the village, and plans to enslave the entire populace with his malignant spells, raising a small army.

The PCs must battle the vile necromancer, even as he animates the very folks who hired the PCs in the first place, to slaughter them.
