Quick Note - One Long Night

Insomnia strikes again, but that is a good thing for everyone buy me! I have finished first draft writing of another two-page adventure title "Assault on the Southern Horn" which goes a long way of bringing all the thread from "Under the Horn", "Joy in a Flask", and "Spectres of Usarm" together.

Like Usarm I think I'll need to be creative in just HOW I get this all to fit into the format ... but right now I may have to take out the scissors and leave some material in the gutters.

Like the previous two-page adventures this one is for Swords and Wizardry. I'm currently looking at artists for the cover but if I can afford it and he can do it I may take my normal two-page adventure cover artist.

Small sample from the first draft of one of the later rooms.

Area 15
Several broken glass tubes stand in the center of this room. Once the PCs enter the same female voice as in Area 3 & 4 will announce a breach and the door will close and lock behind the PCs followed by the sound of wind. In the next 6 rounds the air will be completely removed from the area requiring a Saving Throw to avoid asphyxiation. An an observant PC will notice a the same face in a panel that was in Area 3 & 4. Destruction of the panel or two rounds after the air has been removed will unlock the door.

Treasure – None

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
