Player's Background
&he D- should read or paraphrase the bo;ed te;t
belo$ to the players to start the adventure# &he
a""ount given is told by a refugee from the
valley#
5veryone )no$s the story of 2reestead### ho$ the
small mountain barony $as nearly overrun by
humanoids in an in"ursion t$elve years ago'
$hen .aron 8adarin the ,trong moved s$iftly'
forging an allian"e $ith the d$arven delve in
the nearby mountains and forming a "ombined
for"e of men and d$arves to rid the valley of
the humanoid mena"e# 8adarin $as thus
appointed by the Regen"y Coun"il to repla"e
the ineffe"tual Du)e -argrave' $ho by negle"t
had allo$ed the du"hy7s defenses to be"ome
$ea)#
<ith the "oming of pea"e and se"urity' ne$
settlers began to arrive' and soon the $hole
du"hy $as again prosperous# &he people of the
du"hy "alled their leader the >ron Du)e' and he
ruled them $ith a firm but fair hand#
A bit more than a month ago' the d$arven
miners dis"overed a giant emerald' said to be
the si=e of a man7s fist and "ompletely fla$less
B$hi"h is unheard of even by d$arvesC# Calling
it 02reestead7s Glory'1 they presented it to the
Du)e# 9e $as so pleased $ith the gift that he
de"reed a spe"ial "elebration to be held at
month7s end#
As preparations $ere being made for the
"elebration' a beautiful adventuress arrived in
the )ingdom' riding a $hite dragon# 9er name
$as !ady :ylenne the Courageous' a )night
from the distant )ingdom of Alambar# As soon
as Du)e 8adarin heard about her' he invited her
to his fortress' and not long after that he
announ"ed he $ould marry her during the
festival#
&he day before the $edding' an e;plosion $as
heard "oming from the fortress' and smo)e seen
rising# .y the time any of the lo"al militia
rea"hed the fortress' it $as surrounded by a
green glo$ing field $hi"h burned those $ho
tou"hed it#
.efore nightfall monsters began moving into the
valley# &he militia and those of the Du)e7s for"es
$ho $ere outside the fortress tried to hold them
ba")' but they $ere too fe$ in number and
$ere defeated#

GM's Information
&his adventure is set in the northeastern region of
5nterone in my "ampaign $orld of Glain# @ou
are' of "ourse' free to set it $herever you li)e# &he
player7s ba")ground $ill need to be amended in
this event#
!ady :ylenne the Courageous is no )night' and
her dragon 0steed1 is a"tually her master# &he
dragon is named Gravarthan' and he both
spea)s and "asts spells# <hen he learned of the
great emerald 02reestead7s Glory1 he Dui")ly
s"hemed to steal it#
:ylenne is the last survivor of a group of
adventurers sent to slay Gravarthan# 9e "harmed
her and has )ept her as his pet ever sin"e# &he
$hite armor and silver s$ord "ame from
Gravarthan7s o$n hoard#
:ylenne a"tually es"aped the "harm some time
ago' but has hid this fa"t from her master# ,he
)no$s she is in danger being the 0pet1 of a
dragon' but so far he has been good to her#
f "ourse' :ylenne also s"hemes to steal
Gravarthan7s treasure#
Du)e 8adarin fell for :ylenne right a$ay' for she is
"harismati" as $ell as beautiful and )no$s Eust
$hat to say to a man# 9e sa$ her true "olors only
$hen he "aught her stealing the emerald#
,urprised' she dropped it' and it "ra")ed Bbut did
not shatterC# Fnbe)no$nst to anyone up until that
time' the great Ee$el $as in fa"t a prison for a
demoni" monster "alled :haad) Belongate the

servant of ,yn-Cheron' god of hate6 $hen :haad)
$as imprisoned by mortal mages his master $as
displeased' and de"ided a fe$ millennia of
imprisonment $as a fit punishment for his failure#
&he "ra") allo$ed the monster to e;tend his
mental po$ers into the material plane# &he rush
of his po$er into the $orld turned many of the
inhabitants of the fortress to stone Bin"luding the
Du)e and :ylenne' free=ing them in the moment
of their "onfrontationC# -onsters' in"luding evil
"leri"s and humanoids' $ere then attra"ted to
the fortress6 as they began to arrive' :haad)
altered the green glo$ to allo$ entry but not e;it'
though none of 8adarin7s remaining men have
dis"overed this#
:haad) $ants full a""ess to the material plane'
but he does not )no$ $hat he is imprisoned by
nor $here it is# &he evil "leri"s are sear"hing the
fortress' trying to identify the prison' but
unfortunately for :haad) his rage is "ausing his
minions to sometimes fight ea"h other Bthus
slo$ing the sear"hC#
>f the emerald is bro)en "ompletely :haad) gets
$hat he $ants% his freedom# ,u"h a result $ould
be a "atastrophe# &he players must find the
emerald and de"ide $hat to do $ith it# &here is
no 0standard1 method of se"uring it### the G-
should allo$ any means that seems at all
reasonable to $or)# >n the original playtest of this
adventure' the players de"ided to en"lose it in an
iron bo; sealed $ith melted lead6 > allo$ed them
to find the materials and eDuipment needed in
the al"hemist7s laboratory Broom 3?C and $hen
they had poured the lead over the bo;' > ruled
the emerald $as se"ured#
>f the players are ine;perien"ed' or not used to
planning of this sort' the G- may need to drop
some hints# 2or instan"e' telling the player of the
party7s magi"-user about similar things he or she
heard about during training might be enough#
Gravarthan $as out hunting $hen the emerald
$as "ra")ed' and upon his return $as surprised
by the green glo$# <hen the players approa"h
the fortress' Gravarthan $ill hide6 and if they are
su""essful' restoring the Du)e and the others in
the fortress to life' the dragon $ill leave the area#
>f the players find some $ay to leave $ithout
dealing $ith the emerald' the dragon $ill
"onfront them outside the fortress and demand it
B$hether they have it or notC# &his may "onvin"e
them to go ba") inside rather than being
slaughtered#
Good onse!uences
>t should be obvious at this point that the player
"hara"ters are e;pe"ted to someho$ se"ure the
gemstone# <hat happens $hen this is
a""omplished depends a great deal on ho$
they do it' and so you' the G-' must improvise#
9ere are some things to )eep in mind%
>f the gemstone is se"ured $hile any player
"hara"ters are still in the treasure room' then they
$ill see 8adarin and :ylenne restored to life
before them Bassuming nothing has happened to
them $hile they $ere stoneC# Remember that
8adarin has Eust "aught his intended stealing his
most valuable treasure### he7s "onfused and
angry' and more importantly has no idea $hat7s
been going on around him sin"e the "ra")ing of
the Ee$el#
:ylenne $ill be understandably unhappy about
the 0sudden1 appearan"e of the adventurers in
the room' seeing them as some sort of magi"ally
summoned assistants to 8adarin# ,he might try to
tal) her $ay out of it $ith the Du)e' but more
li)ely she7ll surrender immediately Btrusting that
some opportunity to es"ape $ill present itself
later### this strategy has $or)ed for her beforeC#
&he adventurers $ill have to e;plain to the Du)e
$hat happened# &hough he initially might be
un$illing to believe them' a Dui") loo) around his
disheveled fortress $ill "ause him to reali=e that
they have saved him and his du"hy# f "ourse'
he $ill be saddened by the betrayal of :ylenne'
but his first thought $ill be of his people# -any of
his troops $ho $ere based in the fortress are
dead or missing' but he $ill "all up his reserves as
soon as he "an to repel the humanoid invaders
$andering about the du"hy#
As a re$ard' the Du)e $ill give ea"h player
"hara"ter 1'000 gp and a medal of honor B$orth
25 gp for its gold value' but $orth potentially
more if used as a sort of 0letter of
re"ommendation1 in friendly territoriesC#

At this point' if you don7t $ish to "arry on further
