The Gift (PDF)

Two rare books on loan are on their way to Frandor’s Keep in the care of  an elven scholar named Cyrn. They are a gift for a noble’s daughter. Mercenaries are hired for the journey, but, their skill cannot stop the onslaught of merciless bandits and something else, more mysterious and much more deadly.
A lone, battered warrior stumbles for help. The books are gone, and so is the elf. His friends are dying and all he can do is mumble a few clues before his bleeding body can take no more and he slips into the dark place at the foot of death’s door.
Who will answer this warrior’s pleas? Who will save his suffering friends? Who will face the hideous creature? Who will return this valuable gift?

A scenario for a band of 7th to 9th level explorers

13 (very, very dense) pages plus cover

Author: Carolyn Stogdill
Contributing writers: Barb Blackburn, Jolly Blackburn, Steve Johansson
Technical Editor: Steve Johansson

In 2013 we held a mini adventure/encounter contest online. Entries were to be designed for 6th to 10th level adventurers and situated somewhere in the region around Kar Darkan, one of the waystations along the road between Vew and Frandor’s Keep. This scenario was the second place winner and originally published in KoDT #199. Although this encounter is meant to expand the action of the HackMaster immersive setting supplement Frandors Keep, it can easily be dropped and dragged into any setting.

This product is colorized and has been re-edited to correct some weaknesses in the published scenario.

In Frandor’s Keep, the existence of a hill giant is alluded to in specific rumors (QI 13, KI 1) and is discussed in the writeup of area Q13. One of his rocks landed within the Broken Hilt Tavern (M 12) and is now displayed near the bar.
A preliminary writeup of the creature was printed in KoDT #152, prior to the publication of Frandor’s Keep. We ultimately opted not to include this giant in the adventure as confronting him was well beyond the capabilities of any 5th level characters  — the top end of the scale for the challenges in this setting.
However, in completing this particular scenario, the players have demonstrably acquired the capability of taking on greater challenges. With this in mind, it seems appropriate to ‘reintroduce’ an updated and expanded Nalagarl to the Frandor’s Keep setting.
You may employ this as a bonus scenario (replete with a new Bait & Tackle section) for your campaign.
