Warlock Lair 53: The Death of a Mage (PDF)


Sold By: Kobold Press Store

Uvalius Odolin was little more than a minor, part-time lecturer in clockwork magic at the Zobeck Arcane Collegium. His colleagues dismissed him as a mediocre academic, but as a devotee of clockwork magic and animated constructs, he tinkered day and night in his workshop.

Uvalius was slain a few days ago by his creations. A surge of magic caused by a geomancer manipulating a ley line node under his house caused his automata to go haywire. The geomancer—Shurnas Kradore—holds a grudge against Uvalius that dates back to their school days–and he plotted for years to have
his revenge, but it went too far: Shurnas planned only to ruin Uvalius, not slay him.

Uvalius was a regular at the Hedgehog, stopping in every evening for at least a pint and conversation, and his drinking companions miss him. They put out an advertisement for adventurers to investigate what happened to him.

The adventure begins with the PCs answering an advertisement at the Hedgehog, and are soon drawn into the plotting of rival mages and the unraveling of a mystery!

This adventure for the 5th Edition of the world’s first RPG is meant for five 3rd-level characters. Designed by RP Davis, with cartography by Dyson Logos and cover art by Phil Stone.
