When a dwarf from a local mine is found dead the PCs are sent to investigate. Once at the mine the PCs discover that something terrible has happened and need to find a way to make things right again.
Trouble in Ironboot Mine is designed for a party of 4-6 PCs of 1. level, a good balance of character classes is adviced. It takes place in the Nether Mountains, in the Silver Marches region of the Western Heartlands in Faerûn, using the Forgotten Realms setting. The module can be run using any small settlements where dwarven mine is in the near vicinity. All encounters can be easily modified to suit larger or smaller parties. This is the first part of three in the Aranea Queen campaign.
