Curse of the Pirate King (by Christopher R. Rice and J. Edward Tremlett).
The expedition seems simple: travel to the former capitol of a vast pirate nation, and find the fabled Blade of Dawn. This “straight-forward” mission is complicated by several factors:
- A long-ago betrayal brought a centuries-long curse upon the realm of the Pirate King and his island fortress.
- The island is far from uninhabited . . . though few walking its lands are properly described as living
- The players must discover how death has found a way to bring strange “life” to the isle of the pirate king
All the party has to do is go to the lifeless rock, and loot the treasure of a thousand dead buccaneers. What could go wrong? This quest follows the events of Crown of Eternity . . . with that powerful organization now working against the players.
The last page of the adventure contains 42 print-them-yourself tokens for monsters and NPCs that appear in the adventure (in black-and-white).
