From Publishers website:
Abandon hope all ye who enter! Can you survive the horrors of the King’s Mercy?
The Dungeon witnessed the torture of innocents, the barbaric infliction of pain on the guilty, and the pleasure the staff took from the suffering of the inmates. Acts so depraved that the very fabric of the dungeon could not help but absorb these evils. And so it sits, waiting to share its suffering with anyone that intrudes within.
There are only two things The King’s Mercy knows: humans can be as depraved as the vilest monsters they hunt…. and misery loves company.
Perilous Places: The King's Mercy is a location template to aid in running gripping and terrifying adventures in a dungeon created for torture. This 20 page PDF features:
3 brand new monsters
3 unique magic items
the Despair Track, an innovative new mechanic for measuring how the PCs are handling the horrors of the dungeon
Written by Paul Baalham, co-author of Defenders of Midgard, and the Midgard Bonus Bestiary for 4th Edition (both Kobold Press)
