  • Honor Guard: The player characters escort an important religious figure travelling from the city of Jesten to the city of Alm, with a brief stop in the town of Slapdash, as he transports the crytal of light. Little do they know that a wizard intends to steal the holy relic.
  • The Long Way Home: In a remote part of the Desert of Ages, the player characters are forced to stop at a small, isolated, deserted town among rocky bluffs. There they encounter the restless spirit of dwarf Ottis, who demands that in exchange for water the party find a magic relic, the hammer Rocksplitter, and use it to drive out duegar invaders and free his people.
