Dungeons & Dragons
Adventure #0 – Introduction – (Level 1) The duo meet while investigating two displacer beasts that have made their lair in a portion of the construction site of their Chamber. Inside they found a pyramidal box that cannot be opened until Adventure #3. They are recruited by the King of Chamber #3 to leave the sanctity and investigate Chamber #13 and why communication has stopped there.
Adventure #1 – Journeying to Chamber #13 – They must travel through a small forest that has been a victim of an anti-gravity spell that affects plant and animals. Once through, they reach their first stop at the Crow's Cage Inn to rest.
Adventure #2 – What Lies in the Cellar – (Level 2) The barkeep requests the duo to exterminate all vermin that is pestering the cellar so that customers will return. However, the cellar was once a church used to worship evil spirits long ago and must be sanctified or else more bad luck will follow the barkeep. Also barkeep gives them a keg of Smokewood Stout to be delivered to a friend up north who owns a Quarry (Adventure #9)
Adventure #3 – The Corrupted Woods – (Level 3) King and Queen elves are losing their forest from corruption. Three areas of focus need to be solved before the duo are granted permission to continue through (and save them a week's journey around). The Moon Masks (owl people) have become corrupted and acting hostile. Something has tainted their sacred grounds and must be cleansed without bloodshed on the otherwise peaceful tribe. The Great Deku Tree has lost its vibrancy to live and is causing the surrounding area to suffer. They must find what is causing its corruption. Finally the Sanctuary has been defiled by evil spirits that cause the dead to rise and must be put to rest again. Destroy whatever is causing them to be restless. A dry fountain has a series of rings that can be spun to form a perfect harmonic sound that opens the pyramid model they found in the construction site in Adventure #0. Inside is a key (cylinder with grooves) that opens the Obelisk Shrine of God in Adventure #7 and a piece of paper in a foreign language "With this seed, I plant all." It refers to the Assimar being the forefathers of all civilizations.
The duo is rewarded by the King, and he commends Zaburk of the dying race he is a part of and of his resemblance to a young woman who left the protection of his domain to live with an Orc who hailed from the Northern Lands. The king did not trust this individual, and years later did he see the Orc travel back through his woods once more. This time, he spoke of madness of a terrible colony of tentacled creatures that fed off the brains of the living deep inside the mountains of Valashra. I believed him to be mad, so I ordered my guards to imprison him in the Stonebrook Asylum to the north.

They have used oxen to manually run the mill, but those are being destroyed at a rapid pace by unusual behaviors from a pack of wolves. Meanwhile, what little water they have been drinking has turned many to desiring the taste of human flesh and sometimes attack the duo. A small band of cultists from Nub Sumat live in a cave nearby that are wishing to remove all citizens of Ravens Hollow to use as their base of operations.
