The Reaping Stone Deluxe Adventure
Some years ago, Azrenar, a cleric of Maramaga, Scythe-mother and Queen of Rot, petitioned the king of Maerh-Varza to build a great temple to the ancient goddess. In great fury, the king seeks to put the offensive cleric and his followers to the sword and nearly succeeds. His follower's dead bodies line the roads to Maerh-Varza and the cleric Azrenar curses the king, declaring bloody vengeance.
Azrenar hides deep underground and he and his remaining followers find an ancient temple deep within the earth, one formerly held by evil dwarves centuries before Maerh-Varza was built. But when Azrenar takes over the temple, his mind is enraptured by the Reaping Stone, an ancient artifact once held by the Midnight King, a powerful wizard-priest of Maramaga's order.
Now channeling the power of the Reaping Stone, Azrenar has created a deadly supernatural disease, one capable of animating those who die of the horrible wasting disease. Will the spurned cleric turn Maerh-Varza into a zombie-infested metropolis or will the players find the cure in time?
The Reaping Stone is a deluxe 200 page adventure that will take your characters down a dark path, from 1st level to at least 5th level, as prequel for the upcoming Bleeding Hollow deluxe adventure.
The Reaping Stone is as brutal as the legendary Rappan Athuk and as challenging and engaging as any published Adventure Path, with a good dose of old school carnage binding the lot together.
This adventure has a dark, engaging and compelling story line in which the player characters must race to uncover the cure to a vile supernatural disease. Your players will be highly engaged and invested. They will know fear... especially since they may very well have contracted the supernatural plague themselves!
