Has anyone played this RPGA adventure?The Star of Kolhapur on Amazon wrote:The Star of Kolhapur (Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, 2nd Edition) Paperback – 1997
by Michael Selinker
"When the fabled Star of Kolhapur gem is stolen, Rajah Shivaji is rightfully incensed. He blames the Thugs, vicious murdering worshippers of the black goddess Kali. But the thugs are not the only dangers in this land. Fiendish spirits wander the city, thieves prowl the streets of Kolhapur, and something even more sinister emerges at night..."
I've heard this is based on Indian mythology. The map on the back cover certainly looks like India (although it could be an island continent, rather than a conjoined one). Is this adventure supposed to be set in real-world India? Or was a Kolhapur a campaign setting created specifically for this adventure?
Is there much to the local religion, aside from the goddess Kali? Are other deities mentioned? Does the book refer people to Legends & Lore for the pantheon?
