Weltroc's Folly - Level-13 fifth-edition adventure.
When an abandoned keep on the southern shore of Haliaeetus became infested with a writhing, purple mass, everyone considered it a curiosity at most, indeed not anything that presented a danger. But this perception was shattered when Marques Weltroc, heir to the throne, went missing on one of his naval expeditions, and wreckage from his ship washed up on shore covered in the same purple mass. Now, the mass is corrupting the land, the kingdom is threatened, and the reality of the danger has struck close to the Duke’s heart. In a fury, he has called for the aid of adventurers to explore the southern ruins and bring back his son, if possible.
Horrors by the Sea - Level-14 fifth-edition adventure.
After ridding their coastline of a repulsive purple mass, the island kingdom of Haliaeetus has begun retaking their lands. But the relief is brief, as the king’s arcane advisor scries that aberrant dangers were the cause of the attack on the kingdom’s shore and are now hiding in a cliffside shrine. When the call goes forth for hardy adventurers capable of clearing the cavern and destroying the source of deviant magic plaguing the land, will any brave few answer the call?
The Flickering Keep - Level-15 fifth-edition adventure.
Despite following the royal arcanist’s instructions to the letter, the aberrant threat’s influence has yet to be completely stoppered. Now, instead of alien masses or battery crystals, the corruption lies in our heroes. A great evil has gotten its hooks in their psyches after so much time spent together, and only by bringing their fractured thoughts to life can they hope to kill this invader once and for all.
