Under the City: Vault of the Mad Mage

Among the various circles of treasure hunters, rumors speak of a dungeon built beneath mazes of streets and aqueducts, of a trove right under the noses of everyday citizens. According to legend, it was built by the former adventurer Zeres who elected to turn the tables on future generations of thrill-seekers and plunderers with his own tomb. None have returned from the dungeon alive (or successful enough to warrant a story), but as always, that...

On the Road with Phileus J. Abbertale: Earth and Water

I have always felt an affinity for the sea. Watching the blue tapestry stretch out to the horizon while cutting through the waves inspires me to dream of distant lands and perilous journeys. It would stand to reason that water holds a special allure for me then, but a frightful encounter in the wetlands paled my enthusiasm for watery excursions. Entry Three—Earth and Water Indeed, trekking into Maillon’s swamp is a much different experience...

Welcome to Midgard: Dust Goblins

Until the Great Mage Wars, goblins mostly lived in the dark places of the world. Midgard’s populations dwelt below the Pytonne Mountains and the contested western range of the Ironcrags. The darkness and ruin brought by that great conflict gave the goblins some respite from the light of day. Fleeing the dwarves’ relentless westward push, the goblins finally emerged onto the face of the world. They have adapted well to their new lives in the...

Background Somewhere within the thick of the Margreve Forest lies a small village inhabited by a dozen or...

Dungeons of Midgard: “Sunken Treasure” of Hammra Cistern

For 9th-level characters Dragon Lord Ibbalan the Illustrious—eldest and greediest of wind dragons, the gold-cloaked khan of Mezar—ascends to Irkaly Palace’s highest minaret. The dragon seethes as he sets his gaze westward upon the bright blue waters of the Middle Sea. Out there, resting on the ocean floor, is a treasure. Compared with the great wealth adorning his own form, it is probably a trifle. That is not the point. By right of conquest,...

The Courts of Fey: Seelie Champion

Since the rise of the “young” races, the boundaries of Faerie have waned and receded farther into the shadows. Once great powers and influences have been diminished or forbidden or forgotten. As the ancient traditions faded and the Old World separated from the New, some were compelled to depart along with it, by necessity or by choice or by force. Whether exiled wanderers or founders of new kingdoms beyond the veil, the fairest of Otherworld...

On the Road with Phileus J. Abbertale: Fire and Sand

My uncle Reginald, a cosmopolitan fellow with a flair for the dramatic, regaled me throughout my youth with marvelous tales about his adventures in the Southlands.
