Previously, I mentioned the hook for this series of adventures: the sage Ladan hires the player characters to search the ruins of lost Acadus for ancient texts.
What I didn’t mention was that the characters are the second group Ladan hired for this purpose. You see, he had previously enlisted the services of Edward and William, two adventurers who successfully located the Hall of Sages.
Unfortunately, only William returned from the expedition, reporting that Edward had accidentally fallen to his doom shortly after they found a magical-looking tome. Ladan was upset to learn that Edward had been carrying the book when he fell into the chasm. Nevertheless, Edward received his due pay, and went off to deliver William’s share to his next-of-kin.
Now, Ladan has finished brooding over the matter and has decided to hire a new group of adventurers to examine the Hall of Sages again, more carefully. He hopes that perhaps the chasm was not as bottomless as it seemed and that the book can yet be found.
The directions to the Hall, left by Edward, are quite vague and consist of just a small number of landmarks. While the characters are wandering the ruins trying to find the correct place, use the die-drop table below to select random encounters.
