The upcoming Elder Tunnels publication from Peryton Publishing will include my submission, a GM adventure entitled 'Days and Nights in Baru-Kesh'. This Spring issue is non-Western themed, and my contribution is loosely based on the Arabian Nights stories.
Here is the Introduction to my adventure:
I believe in providing various options to the players when running an ongoing campaign. While there will always be times that you will have a pre-determined adventure or scenario to run, I love to give the players the opportunity to explore and be free to choose their course of action. That is why I have grown to love running city adventures where the possibilities can be endless for the imaginative GM.
This GM adventure could be used as brief interlude for traveling characters, or the start of an ongoing city campaign spanning multiple sessions. It is designed to use with Tunnels & Trolls 7.5 for up to six characters, Levels 1-3. Higher character levels could easily be accounted for by adjusting Monster Ratings or Challenges presented. Being a fantasy take on an Arabian culture, common non-human kindred will be out of place, but not unaccepted. Other kindred can be played, but may be treated more as an outsider or with fear/distrust.
Some highlights of the adventure include:
- An updated version of my Meandering Monster, The Minotaur
- New Monster - "Ghul"
- New Magic Items
- New Potions
Keep an eye out for this new issue of Elder Tunnels, release date of April 13, 2012.
