Under the City: Lada’s Temple

Under the City presents opportunities to add new layers to your urban adventuring… Lada’s Temple stands prominent among the city’s buildings, made all the more visible by a gilded marble statue perched atop its vaulted roof.

The Courts of Fey: Seelie Knight

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.

Midgard Monster Lore: The Nightgarm (Part 2)

From the journal of Hallvard the Left-Handed, priest of the All-Father (continued)… The old man leaned back on the bench with his fresh mug of ale and rested his head against the wall. He stared in the same unfocused way at the timber ceiling and spoke again. When the howling began, the men paid it little attention, still waiting for Ox-Bjorn to explain himself. He set one end of the wooden beam in the snow and then lifted it again, this...

Some were entertainers and the skills that they learned while living remain, albeit twisted, after their transformation into a banshee.

Warlock’s Apprentice: The Crimson Oubliette

Bringing you a taste from the dark pages of Warlock… Down a mostly forgotten passage of the Undercity, behind a partially cleared rockfall, lies the arched chamber containing the Crimson Oubliette.
