The Marshes are burning, and we don't know why...
The Bone Marshes is an adventure filled with mapping and exploration challenges for the players. It uses special time-keeping and travel rules with player handouts to keep everyone engaged and on the same page in this topsy-turvey land.
The Bone Marshes is a three part adventure module, each of which can be run separately or consecutively. Each part provides 2-4 sessions of gameplay.
Part I: The marshes burn from constant daylight. The sun never sets! The mage Azimech recently discovered this terrible situation and has put out a call for adventurers to map safe routes through the flaming swamp.
Part II: After the caravan has arrived (thanks to your mapping skills), Azimech needs you to head back out and discover the source of the constant daylight.
Part III: Now that she knows the root cause of the problem, she thinks there is a solution. It involves plumbing the depths of the tunnels beneath the marshes, plundering an ancient vault, and returning with valuable artifacts.
