Stick in the Mud

Sarah Darkmagic - Posted on 03 February 2010

"Stick in the Mud" is a short adventure for five 1st-level characters that takes place in the Chaos Scar, near the King's Wall. It pits the PCs against a tribe of evil bullywugs that have taken up residence in a long-ruined keep. The keep, once the abode of a goliath sorcerer, holds a powerful magic item that has ripped open a small portal to the Elemental Chaos. A tide of mud is steadily flowing through the portal and into the cellars beneath the ruins, creating a muddy wallow that is ideal for bullywugs.

When the great meteorite fell from the heavens and plowed the Chaos Scar, it destroyed Voran's keep, along with many other features of the terrain. The swamp drained away, leaving only a desolate, dry ruin in its wake. Only the ground floor of the keep and the laboratory beneath it escaped destruction, but even these meager remains were buried in the wake of the meteorite's fall. Voran himself escaped the obliteration of his home, but his name and legacy faded into history. Now a tribe of bullywugs, drawn by the evil siren song of the meteorite, have uncovered the ruins of the keep and moved in.
