A new OSRIC oneshot module, The Secret of Sundance Caverns, is wrapping up and will be available on or before... Friday the 13th!
hills in the northern reach of this far flung outpost of civilization
have long been the domain of many predatory creatures. From time to
time, adventurers sally forth and clear the region of the more dangerous
ones. On other occasions, the local militia band together to destroy
the orcs, goblins, and other humanoids that threaten the local
population and trading routes.
Recently, the local officials have
sent for aid from the area’s thane regarding the sudden appearance of a
large dragon that attacks at night from the shadows. Unlike any other
dragon known, the fierce creature appears interested in little else but
finding a new meal but collects no treasure or other booty. The thane
has summoned your party of adventurers to journey into the hills toward
the ironically named Sundance Caverns… long a source of monsters and
local superstition… from whence the mysterious dragon has been seen to
emerge and return.
But wait! Darker rumors have appeared that
many of the outlying farms are suffering from a strange sickness… family
members tired and listless… with strange puncture marks on their necks
as if they were attacked by some wicked creature. Are the twin dangers
connected, and can the adventurers destroy the creature and any other
denizens of evil found there and restore peace to the countryside?
