Dungeon Crawl Classics #49
Palace in the Wastes
An Adventure for Character Levels 6-7
Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics adventures don't waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren't meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you remember, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.
This special tournament module was used for the Third Annual Dungeon Crawl Classics Open Tournament at Gen Con Indy 2006. It includes the official tournament scoring system, pregenerated characters, and illustrated player handouts. The adventurers seek the ruined palace occasionally glimpsed deep within the forbidding Achsfel Wastes. Within, they discover evidence of the palaceís builders, the tortoise-like falsoom, and begin to piece together why it was built. Soon they face a series of titanic battles against a twisted servant of Law, a giant weapon of Chaos, and the severed (but very alive) hand of a demigod!
Rules Set: d20 v3.5.
Áereth Map Grid: MM9.
