Title: Asticlian Gambit
Author: Anthony Pryor
Format: 16-page book, 2 48-page flip books
The palace of the Forest Queen contains treasures
unimaginable. To the sons and daughters of Athas's harsher climes, Gulg
and the Crescent Forest seem almost perversely lush, a jumble of green
and growing things hording precious water for the benefit of the few.
But while basking in the glow of Lalali-Puy's gratitude, your characters
have the richness of the forest at your beck and call.|
Of course, the Oba's sensibilities are easily bruised, and her nature is notoriously unforgiviing. Gulg's dank dungeons are only a staging area to a deadly ceremony, where the young nobles of the city chase prisoners through the forest to earn their places as lord of their city - the Red Moon Hunt.
Designed for four to six characters of 7th to 10th level, Asticlian Gambit makes them pawns in a dangerous game between the Oba of Gulg, the Shadow King of Nibenay, and mysterious representatives of the Asticles family of Tyr. A stand-alone adventure, Asticlian Gambit can also be played as the sequel to Freedom, Road to Urik, and Arcane Shadows.
