by Jonathan McAnulty

A Pathfinder Compatible Adventure for 4-6 Level 1 PCs

Waves of supernatural darkness sweep over the subterranean city of Stoneholme, quenching lights and bringing with it foul creatures of shadow. After heroically defending a group of dwarven children from being ravaged by a group of these shadow beings, the PCs are approached by Shtawn Deppenkhut—one of the king’s own advisers—and are offered the task of finding the source of the darkness that threatens the city.

The PCs investigation takes them through the Underworld to hidden caverns, where demon worshipping priests offer living sacrifices in an attempt to plunge Stoneholme into everlasting darkness, a first step in destroying the hated city once and for all, but as it turns out the priests aren’t the only ones behind this unfolding plan to destroy Stoneholme.

Dark Days in Stoneholme is a Pathfinder/3.5 compatible adventure suitable for four to six PCs of 1st-2nd level that features low-level exploration in Aventyr’s Underworld and intrigue both in and around the dwarven city of Stoneholme.

  • The Underworld city of Stoneholme!
  • Two new magical items, the aubade pendant (to light a wayward adventurer’s path) and the dark-heart ruby (a devious stone of dark portent).
  • The Dark-Blessed template, offering up a new means to embolden your monsters and NPCS!
  • Two separate dungeons—the Quartzfell Glassworks and Felltooth Temple!

 

U02-SCREEN1U02: Murder in Stoneholme (PF & 5E)

by Jonathan McAnulty

A Pathfinder Compatible Adventure for 4-6 Level 3 PCs

A refuge in the underworld, Stoneholme stands neutral, its dwarves refusing to participate in any of the myriad struggles which occupy their neighbors. But, of late, evil has come to Stoneholme. Still recovering from recent supernatural events, the city now finds itself facing a mysterious killer, one whose face is never the same twice, and who leaves his victims cruelly cut and torn. The PCs must find the evidence which links the murders to the Flintblade clan, infiltrate their dark manor and bring their gruesome deeds to an end. But more than fell traps fill this dwarven home. Demonic sorcery is at work and the PCs will need all their courage and strength to survive.

Dark Deeds in Stoneholme is a follow-up adventure to Dark Days in Stoneholme, but it can also be used as a stand-alone scenario. The adventure features a series of grisly murders, a dangerous dwarven manor, demon-worshiping dwarves and a demonic, shape-shifting murderer. Though set in Stoneholme, the adventure can be easily ported to any non-evil underworld city.

A13: Descent into the Underworld

A Pathfinder/3.5 Compatible Adventure for 4-6 PCs of levels 6-8

The drow city of Holoth is a wealthy metropolis of power-hungry drow families, with various houses constantly vying for position and prestige at the expense of each other. House Gullion, one of the more sinister houses, seals a pact with a mysterious race called the Vidre, an agreement which causes a shift Gullion's way and throws the entire Underworld into utter chaos. Matron Maelora of House Gullion is as devious as they come and has far greater dreams than simple regional conquest; visions from the Spider Goddess give her insight into the expansion of her house and dominance over both the Under and Overworld.

When the dwarven trade city of Embla is placed in a tight position, being between the Overworld and the drow city of Holoth, it calls upon the Overworlders for help. Most of Embla's dwarven warriors have been enslaved or killed, and Emlba's citizens have little hope of holding back the hordes of drow from Holoth.

The PCs are called upon to help the dwarves of Embla. Their choices will have profound implications on the Underworld, as well as Rybalka and the entire Vikmordere Valley. When the dust settles, the entire region may be changed forever.

A14: Scourge of Embla

A Pathfinder/3.5 Compatible Adventure for 4-6 PCs of levels 8-11

After battling their way to the dwarven trade center of Embla, the PCs find a city under siege, as business dries up and the population show increasing signs of fear towards the drow city of Holoth and its power-hungry head family, House Gullion. So confident, so audacious has Matron Maelora of House Gullion become, that she starts the plans to expand the influence of her house to both the Under and Overworlds by assaulting Embla, initially in a small way, but with greater plans afoot.

Once the ruling council of Embla has woken up to its predicament and gained the PCs as allies, it takes full advantage of the Overworlders help. With most of Embla’s dwarven warriors having been enslaved or killed, the party represents an unexpected addition to the city's arsenal; advice, guidance and equipment are offered, and the party can either attempt to enter the city of Holoth with a force of Rybalkan soldiers or go along with a reliable and revitalized guide into the lesser-used passages of the Underworld.

But neither path is the easy route; each has its perils and predicaments. Allies may be gained or friends lost, and approaching Holoth will tax the party. Because on accepting the calls to help the dwarves of Embla, the PCs find their choices will have profound implications on the Underworld, as well as Rybalka and the entire Vikmordere Valley. When the dust settles, the entire region may be changed forever.
