The Craggy Gulch Mining Syndicate is concerned about recent spooky occurrences in its gold mine in the Blunder Briar Mountains. Miners have been quitting on a weekly basis due to paranormal activity and attacks by monsters that are not native to the region. Duck Greybeard, the mine foreman, has put up a reward of five-hundred gold pieces to anyone brave enough, or foolish enough, to get to the bottom of these strange occurrences so his workers can safely bring gold ore out of the mine.
This encounter is short enough to use as a random encounter if your players are traveling in a mountainous region or it could be run as a short standalone one-shot.
Suitable for kids and adults!
If you are playing with kids at the table, this is a fantastic example of a Scooby Doo horror-comedy in a table-top RPG scenario!
