“Nest of the Rat Master”
details a section of city sewers occupied by a gifted but low-ranking
servant of The Rotlord, his beggar-thrall devotees and several
varieties of giant rats. It is
optimally designed for a party of five 4th-level characters.
The scenario has purposefully been left vague with regard to its
location so as to allow you to place it in any large town or city of
your choice. The dungeon as presented is a self-contained warren
separate from any connection to a wider subterranean network of
tunnels. However, should you have ambitious plans for a larger series
of sewer delving scenarios, options have been noted allowing for access
to a greater sewers system of your own design.
