Heart of Stone

While travelling through Corviglia, wanderers might happen across pieces of uncannily lifelike human sculptures in the bushes near the windy mountaintops. This might be an amber foot, wearing painstakingly carved ancient sandals, a granite slender hand clutching a dagger or a marble jaw, agape with a war-cry made stone. The natives just chuckle when presented with these wondrous items. “Don’t worry – there won’t be many more of those turning up” is the usual response. This is because all the villages in Corviglia, from Ot to Vadret and from Surlej to Crasta Mora know, that their ancestors drove out the creators of these sculptures long ago. They know of the bloody rebellion which forced both the sculptors and their masters underground. They know how hard their ancestors fought, to eradicate and bury every last piece of the culture which produced these artefacts. What they and their ancestors apparently underestimated, was the curiosity of scholars – because only a day’s march away from their homes, the archaeologist Madulain Pat managed to dig up something Corviglia wanted to keep buried forever.

In this 3 – 5 hour adventure, a party of 5th to 6th level characters are hired to check up on the half-elf scholar Madulain Pat. His last courier pigeon to the university was sent over a month ago, and he hasn’t been seen or heard of since. His isolated dig-site in the mountains is found quickly, but the party soon realizes, why the scholar had not returned home: he had unearthed a giant structure built by Corviglia’s old masters. The players are forced to venture deeper to rescue Madulain Pat and eventually come face to face with the mountain’s “Heart of Stone”.
