Backstory

The Lost Halls of Scarnascis for DCC Cover

The party has found a magical treasure map on a previous adventure or from a recent contact. For the map to reveal its secrets, in magical text, it states that they must swear a pact of companionship over personal interest, of generosity over greed, and harmony over discord.
Once they all swear and affix their thumbs to the map, the directions become clear and they can set off. If a PC attacks or steals from another PC, the magic of the map imprisons them in the Temple of Brotherhood immediately, regardless of where it happens. (See Room 5).

For the Judge

This is a trap-laden, monster-light, two-level dungeon crawl. In playtesting it was always completed in under four hours. It’s setting neutral, and it can be deadly for parties who are not of a cautious nature. Right at the beginning, it starts off with a trap to remind the players that dungeons are deadly places. The payoff is a set of magical weapons with elemental properties and a dangling plot point for further adventure.

Great for quick drop-in games, one-shots, or as an interlude or lead-in to your main storyline.
