A Free Adventure for Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed
To support The Diamond Throne, we’ve got a free adventure for you called Between Life and Death set in the Floating Forest. If the adventure name sounds familiar, it’s because this is the adventure used at GenCon 2003 to premiere both Monte Cook’s Arcana Unearthed and give a preview of the Diamond Throne setting. It’s a complete 16-page adventure in PDF form, with six ready-to-use characters. And did I mention it’s free?
Between Life and Death is an adventure intended to be used as an introduction to Monte Cook’s Arcana Unearthed for 5th-level characters. In it, you’ll find everything you need to get started. The adventure assumes that the DM has read Arcana Unearthed and is fairly familiar with the material. The players do not need to have read the book, but should be familiar with 3rd Edition rules (or 3.5).
However, you can also use this as an adventure for players experienced with Arcana Unearthed. You’ll find it to be a fun scenario to insert into a campaign. DMs, note that it fits right into the Diamond Throne setting.
Along with the adventure, we have a short Arcana Unearthed Quick Reference Guide for DMs new to this variant player's handbook. Thanks to the Council of Magisters for assembling this handy document.
