From the back of the book:
This book presents a series of exciting linked adventures that take place in the streets of Ptolus to get your campaign started. These short scenarios are designed to introduce players and player characters to the ins and outs of the city. Characters of 1st or 2nd level who start with these adventures can reasonably expect to be 3rd or even 4th level when they complete them all.
The adventures presented here are episodic, but they are designed to be run together, one after another. They involve gangsters, politics, and a conniving dark elf manipulating events—and the PCs—to get what he wants. By the end, the characters will have met some of the movers and shakers in the city and are likely to have made both allies and enemies. The chapter also includes some short, independent “interludes” that can be inserted at almost any time.
This is one in a series of nine Ptolus PDF releases from Malhavoc Press. When used together, they comprise the entirety of the Ptolus print book.
Each one is also usable on its own for city-based fantasy d20 roleplaying campaigns.
