The Abandoned Mage Tower — A Starting Adventure for The Shadow of the Demon Lord
23. November 2020
Usually we write something for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, but we have as much fun with Shadow of the Demon Lord as you could read some time ago.
For the first issue of our Zine, Tales from Kerberos’ Den, I rewrote the Fate Seeker class as an expert path for Shadow of the Demon Lord. Without a great announcement, I translated the Fate Seeker and published that expert path on the community program of Shadow of the Demon Lord over at DriveThru’s.
Now a new starting adventure is following. In The Abandoned Mage Tower the players arrive at Leiden, a village in the duchy of Sonneburg where the dead are restless. Father Ferdinand Steinbach, an acolyte of the New God and spiritual leader of the village, asks them to have a look at the old Mage’s Tower after the first dead person was found near the tower. At night strange noises are heard coming from the tower and the old mage, Johann Straussler, is gone for several months and nobody knows when he will come back.
Whats to find inside?
