From publisher blurb:
A location and adventure for old school roleplaying games. Written specifically for Swords & Wizardry, but usable with any retroclones or old school games.
No one knows from where they came. All feathers and spite. Their vile beaks spit angry screeches, and beneath their wing beats, acrid miasmas swirl.
Within the subterranean caverns beneath Wychington — on the shores of Lake Grimwater — a small part of a region from long ago, or maybe a time yet to pass, has come into existence. Malign and abhorrent half-men, half-crows inhabit this harrowing place. Standing menacingly, clad in the darkest armour, or on their pitch-black wings protected by lighter, piecemeal leather armour, they murder men and feast on their flesh. Strangely resentful of their barely-feathered gods, they despise other living creatures for taking their breaths.
This is Corvendark, and under the sign of an inverted, five-skulled star, the Murder Knights dwell.
Since the coming of this otherworldly realm, the Grimwater Lake region has been plagued by the atrocities of the ‘harpies’ — as they have been incorrectly named — regularly raiding the surface lands. None have been ravaged more so than Wychington, a small town on the northern lake edge at the mouth of the Lesselling River.
It is now that heroes are needed. Who will destroy this menace, or send them back whence they came?
The Lord of Wychington, Corben Truss, has sent out word of the need for aid and assistance to any that will heed it. Maybe, just maybe, that is you?
This adventure is intended for low level play and can be scaled up or down accordingly. It should work best with 4× Level 4 player characters with access to plenty of healing.
PLEASE NOTE: The adventure has a horror/gore vibe, and consequently some descriptions of gory scenes. Also a couple of swear words!
