Treachery's Reward 3rd Edition (Levels 1-3)
A scenario from the
Adventure Keep series published by AEG, intended for characters of 1st-3rd level, in an oriental setting.
: "Tara Mura is an indistinct
village near the coast. The peasants who live here work hard and do
their best not to attract attention from outsiders and few even know
the tiny village exists. The road bends near Tera Mura as the sun
slowly sets. Despite its boring appearance, it may have a passable inn.
A chill breeze blows through the pass, a strange, restless howl upon
the wind. The moon hovers fat and full in a sky too bright for a night
such as this. Perhaps it would be best to find a safe place to spend
the evening. The dry snap of a twig echoes in the high rocks to one
side of the road.
"Several figures in black masks appear from behind
the rocks, wielding rough-hewn spears. Perhaps this won't be such a
boring trip after all."
