Mini-Dungeon #019: The Goblin Warren
For 4 Characters of Level 1
Many centuries ago, the quasit known as Viletongue was summoned from the Abyss to assist his summoner in attaining magical knowledge beyond his understanding. Deliberately tricked by Viletongue, the magic failed his master at a key moment; he was immolated on the spot. Now free to pursue his own goals outside of the Abyss, Viletongue immediately began corrupting other greedy souls, tempting them into perversion and damnation. Finally identified as the creaturebehind the corruption of several well-considered magelingsand apprentices, the velvety-tongued quasit was eventuallycaptured and imprisoned in this hidden complex by agroup of ascetic clerics known as The Custodians.Over the next five decades, Viletongue took great delight in attempting to corrupt the clerics into turning on each other (whilst secretly hoping that one may release him). Finally, hemanaged to break the mind of one of the Custodians withhoneyed words, convincing him to murder the remainingmembers of his order before taking his own life.Never freed, Viletongue waited and plotted in the gloom, until a war party of goblins stumbled upon this complex. Taking shelter with their goblin dogs in this miserable complex,Viletongue delighted in his new company and has begun to whisper suggestions to Grom Hellscream, the leader of the war party. Implanting ideas into Grom’s limited imagination,the warparty has already had a number of local successes,and his reputation is rising. As such, he and his warparty nowwarrant a bounty for their elimination or dispersal – enoughfor local adventurers to seek them out.
