I see you shiver with anticip-

This is adventure 10 of 25 that is roughly designed to take characters from level 1 to 25 that I will be sharing over the month of September. These posts are a part of Asshat Paladin's OSR Short Adventure Challenge, and utilize his Get Ready, Get Set, Go! format. It's also this week's Tim Curry Tuesday post... probably the only one this month, unless I get really creative...

Lastly, don't forget to vote on my new poll - What is the Defining Element of Steampunk?

A Get Ready, Get Set, Go! Classic D+D adventure set in the lands granted to the characters

Get Ready:
As the adventurers explore their new lands, a thunderstorm blows in and reveals an unknown castle inhabited by strange people.

Get Set:
The weather turns foul as the adventurers make their first foray into their granted lands. With a flash of lightning they spy a castle perched on a hilltop. The castle is home to Lord Frankonfuhrter and his various retainers, including Prolitarian the Hunchback, Fuchsine the maid, Brazil the lady lackey, and a large number of other strangely clad people.

Everyone living in the castle is INSANE (they're also actually members of the Unseelie Court)! In addition to the (supposedly) human retainers, Lord Franonfuhrter has also created a Flesh Golem (oddly called "Stony") that breaks loose during the night. The castle is also full of strange machines and traps. For instance there is a device in the lords workshop that can turn anyone in the castle to stone. It also can teleport petrified people to the main hall. The main hall itself has a large water filled pit under the floor.

Important NPCs:
Lord Franonfuhrter (Unseelie Fay Lord)
Prolitarian the Hunchback (mate/brother of Fuchsine)
Fuchsine the Maid (mate/sister of Prolitarian)
Brazil the Lady Lackey (mate of Ed)
Ed the Lackey (mate of Brazil, unwilling donator to the Flesh Golem)


  1. Good stuff. It shows how things that don't immediately scream "D&D" can provide excellent inspiration.

  2. "At the late night... double feature... picture show..."

  3. I've been following your series and this, by far, is my favorite. Cheers!
