Delve into the ruined library of a lost city in search of ancient texts. A quiet, atmospheric stroll through the halls of learning escalates into a race against fire, time, rival delvers, and the security systems of old that are still very much functional...
History is written by the victor. But sometimes rewriting history yourself is the best way to get ahead. As feuds over feudal titles and trade privileges escalate, several people in positions of power are interested in firmly establishing their long-standing rights to whatever they have set their eye on. Unfortunately, contradictory historical accounts have landed everyone in a deadlock, and most sources older than that are buried in the now-ruined archives in the haunted capital of a fallen empire.
The superstition surrounding the place is enough to scare off even the most rapacious of noble glory hounds, but that is nothing a band of seasoned adventurers cannot handle.
FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES is an adventure for a party of 10th-level characters, intended for 4-8 hours of play.
