This is adventure 19 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.
To Hear the Lamentations of the Flame Princess (with apologies to Mr. Raggi)
A Get Ready, Get Set, Go! Classic D+D adventure set in The Mountainous Wilderness
The Dragon has been driven from the town, and flown off to the mountains. The storms continue however, and continue spreading. Her influence must be stopped!
For as long as anyone can remember, the mountains have never even rumbled, but the Dragon's presence has warped the world and lava now flows from one of the peaks. Getting to her lair will be difficult.
The ground constantly rumbles on the mountain, and a snow storm rages.
Magical energies are fluctuating (Spells, roll 1d10 - 1 less powerful, 2-4 normal, 5-8 more powerful, 9-10 more powerful + backlash, roll once per round), potions all become poison, charged items use 1d3-1 charges per use – yes, sometimes they’ll use no charge! Items with a flat bonus are more stable.
The death of the Dragon will cause the storms to blow themselves quickly out, but the lava will continue to flow. Her lair will contain significant quantities of uncut gems
Frenzied Demonic Dragon (AC -6, HD22, Attacks Ground: 2 claw/1bite (4d4, 4d4/6d6+6) Flying: Swoop, Crush, or Hover, Spells (5, 5, 5, 4, 3), Demonfire Breath - 180’x30’(current hp damage), Morale 12)
For those keeping track, this is post #500!
