“A Chance Encounter” is a single combat encounter for a group of five 1st-level characters set in the Chaos Scar. The adventurers find a wagon sinking into a hole despite the best efforts by the struggling horse pulling it. Yellow-robed attendants fight to pull the wagon free, but the wagon’s slide and the horse’s screams suggest their efforts are futile. Should the PCs lend a hand, however, they find their good intentions met with cold steel, bitter curses, and a wild three-way fight.
If you’re not playing a Chaos Scar campaign, you can still use this adventure by integrating it into any existing campaign on a road through a remote wilderness area.
