Isle of the Abbey - Black Box/RC - Dungeon #34

Post by DirtSkull » Tue Jan 29, 2019 1:27 am

Looking for more info on this. The author, Randy Maxwell uses "Known World" and puts no importance on the location. Has anyone placed it, run it or fleshed it out more. I'm giving my party an option as they return from the Sind Kingdoms to Thyatis, they're not quite ready for X8.

I took away the "Isle" part and retconned it into the Bone Hills in the southwestern area of Thunder Rift.

So far it's a great read. I can already see my party in a land war with the Skeletons of The Skull Dunes.

I've not used it yet, but when I did read it I gave some thought to putting it off the coast of Thyatis.

My notes have it placed in Minrothad, but I don't know where that came from..

This is such a well written scenario. The Skull Dunes encounter is fresh and exciting, the endgame would add an awesome depth to any campaign that swings past an Island. The "Evil Clerics" of the Abby have been selling(as a fence) the Pirate's booty for years in their temples on the mainland until the Pirates object to the agreement and attack. The Merchant Guild hires you, assuming the pirates were successful, to claim the isle. The Clerics(survivors) need to notify the mainland...you have to decide. Take the Merchants gold and make an enemy of cultists, here and throughout the mainland,...or allow

After deciding to place the Isle of the Abby near Fort Doom, I searched the Pandius archives for a good map of the region and found the Abby already on the map and about right where I would place it, win win
