Drak’kal’s newly minted tax collectors are called into Antonio Casta’s office with an urgent request (after dealing with Rabblerouser and the Klavekian Mob outside, of course, though some parties may do so reluctantly).

As the party sails off from Timeaus in their new airship (either a skyfang or black arrow model), a DC 25 Perception check notices that the principal navigation tool—a compass made of crystal—is vibrating slightly.

Sidequest Saturday: Finding the Macabre Manses – CR 5


The party begins this journey while staying in a decrepit, sparse forest. The night is unusually dark with heavy storm clouds hinting the start of a downpour.

As soon as the adventurers exit the […]
