In the highest circles of power, a dance of death begins. Caught in a web of intrigue and mystery, the first innocent blood spilled merely foreshadows what is to come. Adventurer, can your mind pierce the encroaching webs deviously spun all about you?
The Mystery of the Red Death is an intrigue-centered murder-mystery adventure for a party of four to six PCs of about 3-4th level. Taking place in the setting-agnostic location of Newfort, the adventure is intended to cover two to three game sessions totaling 6-10 hours of play, with an optional sidequest that extends the main adventure by about an hour. At 38 pages, the adventure includes a fully fleshed out high-society dinner party, fully detailed profiles of the victim and five suspected murderers, a nonlinear investigation primarily intended to be player-driven, and a climactic finale with options to represent the players success or failure.
