For use with any RPG Rule System
Note that this Adventure takes place in the City of Intrigue (Module 6).
PC’s might hear a Rumor, see a Wanted Poster, or be approached directly.
It will be explained that several Jewelry Shops have been hit and the
Merchants have already hired several other investigators who are also
Working the case. Whoever recovers the Jewels will be richly rewarded.
PC’s are led to one Boarded up shop to take a look. All the Windows and
Glass showcases are smashed. The small Holy Symbol is attached to a broken
Chain and is mixed in with the broken displays. The PC’s are the first to see it.
It is very ugly and the Merchant will say it is not part of his inventory.
Within a few minutes of looking at dusty old Tomes the Sage of Choice will
Identify the Symbol. “He is a God of a Dead Universe.” “His followers will most
Likely be found along the Coast, or under the waves.”
If the PC’s ask anybody in the Harbor Area they will tell them the Rumor about
Hooded Strangers and direct them to the Warehouses. Only the Bribed Harbor
Master and other officials might claim to be unaware. Another group of Investigators
Might be trailing them and will try to steal any Jewels they are likely to find. The PC’s
Can easily Hire or Steal a Fishing Boat from here.
There are 10 Cultists armed with Fanged Daggers and Spears. If wounded by a Fang
A player must save vs Toughness or contract a disease that will gradually turn him into

The Egg is thin walled and has a Lid. It is a Relic that when filled with Gems is able to
Absorb Leyline energy and transfer it to opening and maintaining a Magic Portal.

must be destroyed. The Keeper gives the party a scroll of Water Breathing.
