A GM’s Resource by Bart Wynants
Nameless things slither against your legs as you wade through the foetid waters of Languard’s sewers. The nauseating stench is thick enough to cut with a blade, causing your eyes to water and your stomach to heave. Even your torch-flame seems affected, flaring and sputtering wildly like a wet candle. There’s no turning back, however. The chittering, squeaking echoes drawing near herald the arrival of a writhing tide of vermin. Behind you, a thousand eyes full of amber malice glow like angry cinders in the dark. Holding aloft your flickering torch, you continue pushing against the sludge’s current in a desperate attempt to stay ahead of the ravening horde. Having reached a crumbling walkway, you hoist yourself up just before the wriggling tide of rats reaches you. A dark doorway looms ahead, and you swiftly duck inside, slamming the door shut behind you. It won’t hold them back forever; you’ve seen them gnaw through stronger doors before, but at least you’ve bought yourself some time. Your relief soon turns to horror as your torch suddenly flares up for the final time. “Sewer gas”. It’s all you can think before the deafening roar erupts inside the room, singing your lungs with blistering hot air…This Dungeon Backdrop is part of the Sacred Blood Storyline.
This Dungeon Backdrop is designed to work with the Ashlar campaign setting but can be easily inserted into almost any fantasy campaign.
About Dungeon Backdrops
You are a GM, but you are busy. You want to write your own modules, but you just don’t have the time. And you don’t want to use commercial modules. You want to make your campaign your own. That’s where the Dungeon Backdrop line comes in! Each Dungeon Backdrop presents a fully fleshed out and lovingly detailed self-contained dungeon ready for you to use as you see fit. Stock the dungeon with your own monsters (and—perhaps—their treasure), decide their back story and you are good to go.
Every Dungeon Backdrop is carefully designed to be easily inserted into almost any fantasy campaign. Dungeon Backdrops: we describe the dungeon, you add the monsters (and the treasure).
