Here is a bit more about each adventure:
The Thing in the Valley
A terror has come to the valley community of Riversmeet. Farmers, herdsmen, and woodsmen have fallen victim to a mysterious and horrific creature. Amidst the terror, questions go unanswered— what is this terrible fiend, where did it come from, and what is its dark purpose? The call has gone out to summon a band of adventurers to put an end to The Thing in The Valley.
The Thing in the Valley is an adventure designed for six to eight characters of second to fourth level. The adventure features a wilderness section as well as a dungeon-type crawl in an aged mansion.
The Screaming Temple
It arose in the span of a single night! Towering walls hide a mysterious temple steeped in obscurity. Rumors of incredible wealth, abhorrent evil, and dark magic swirl about its secretive walls. The local authorities have shown no interest, yet rumors persist. But no one can claim knowledge of the temple. No priests have been seen, no markings adorn its walls...in fact no person has come out or gone in. The only signs of life are the occasional nightmarish screams that shatter the night air.
The Screaming Temple is an adventure designed for four to six characters of first to second level.
This three-chapter adventure finds the Player Characters chasing a dead dragon’s treasure by infiltrating its former lair, delving into the Deep and meeting the challenge of an ancient dark elf citadel and it’s master, a forge lich, and then sent on a quest to find a missing race called the Harrowen.
Chapter 1: Eruptor’s Vengeance
In Eruptor’s Vengeance the players learn that tangling with a dragon, even if it is dead, can be a dangerous endeavor.

Emerging from the dragon’s lair, empty handed, the PCs are confronted by the very much alive Eruptor. The dragon wants his treasure and the PCs are assigned the task of recovery.

Back on the trail of the chasm gnomes, the PCs find a mysterious floating keep and eventually are confronted by a forge lich. The PCs are tasked with yet another quest…
Chapter 3: The Forgotten Dark
It seems the forge lich is seeking to resurrect an entire race of Deep dwellers called the Harrowen. This race went extinct when their magic sun, called the Orb, (that illuminated and gave life to their home cavern) was destroyed by the dark elves in a war long ago. The forge lich has determined that if the Orb is restored, so too the Harrowen. With a restored Harrowen, the forge lich would gain allies in his efforts to conquer the Deep.
