SECRETS OF BLOOD ROCK IS COMING...

Postby Matt_E » Tue Nov 08, 2016 6:39 pm

I am finally finishing our next release:


SECRETS OF BLOOD ROCK
A Mythras adventure
by Matthew Eager

In the northwestern reaches of The Vale rises an odd mountain of dappled red and grey stone. Maps call this place Pied Peak, but in the nearby town of Crafton it is known as Blood Rock. That name is shared by the village on the mountain, a quiet settlement with an unsettling ambience, and a dubious history.

Days ago a well known peddler returned breathless and pale from that isolated hamlet, bearing a tale of mystery and woe. Villagers are disappearing without a trace. A patrol was dispatched to investigate, but no report has been received. Even the normally calm Lord Reval is concerned. Someone must act—now. Winter comes early to these parts, and who knows what might happen next?

SECRETS OF BLOOD ROCK is a Mythras fantasy/horror adventure set in The Realm, as are Book of Quests and Hessaret’s Treasure. Those supplements present useful background information for this setting, but are not required. This standalone investigation of the weird and terrible is designed to be integrated easily with your existing fantasy campaign.

This scenario is designed for four to eight characters run by experienced players. Running fewer than four adventurers is not recommended, and the Games Master is encouraged to use as many of the non-player characters as desired to round out the party. The numbers of allies and adversaries are strongly adjustable. The plot does not hinge on any particular allies, though some assumptions are made for the sake of exposition.

Any type of character might prove useful on this adventure, and variety makes for a strong group. Rest assured, there will be violence, so physical prowess is welcome, but the central investigative aspect means that players who formulate a party without social skills do so at their peril.


Look for it in a few weeks. I may tease you with some pieces along the way...

Mmmm, I'm looking forward to reading it! ;)
Do you think it can be easily run in other worlds apart from The Realm?

:) From the scenario:

Secrets of Blood Rock is a MYTHRAS fantasy/horror adventure set in The Realm, as are Book of Quests and Hessaret’s Treasure. Those supplements present useful background information for this setting, but are not required. This standalone investigation of the weird and terrible is designed to be integrated easily with your existing fantasy campaign.

Setting
A low-magic fantasy milieu is assumed, technologically similar to Europe in late Ancient times or the Dark Ages. A simple Civilized culture dominates this land. Any such world should substitute handily for The Realm.

-and just in time for American Thanksgiving!


And it really is great Thanksgiving fare. A saga of country families welcoming strangers into their humble homes to share in traditions of giving thanks for appreciated bounties.

Honest.
