A level 1 adventure set in Lankhmar! Death has come to Lankhmar! It begins as a minor stirring of strange, dangerous coincidences. A ladder falls. A fire erupts. An onlooker plummets from a rooftop, skull-cracking on the chiseled stone below. As conspiracies loom and rumors abound, your band of adventurers must survive the hostile streets of the city and discover the secret that will keep you from Death’s cold reach. Time is running out, and the Lords of Necessity have a dark quota yet to fill as you search for the secret that will fend off the fingers of Death himself. Your quest leads you to a mysterious manor where you must circumvent flood and flame to reach the cage of the long-hidden burned man who offers a gift that just might save your life. This adventure is suitable for level 1 characters, with information inside about scaling up the threats for any character level. Death knows no level restrictions!
