Even if they learn of the creature’s weakness, can they find and use it before Scale destroys too much?

13th Age: The Strangling Sea

strangleseaEnter the graveyard of doomed ships. Experienced seafarers know better than to risk the dangers of the Stranglesea: that terrible place where castaways cling to existence in the rotting hulks of trapped ships, and deadly creatures feast on the unwary.

Now a band of adventurers must enter the Stranglesea and attempt to rescue the enigmatic engineer Inigo Sharpe from his imprisonment. But Sharpe is both more and less than they were prepared for — and the forces of an enemy icon want him for their own sinister purposes.

The Strangling Sea is a seafaring 13th Age Roleplaying Game adventure by Robin D. Laws for a party of 4-6 1st-level adventurers.

The RPPR group took a shot at it. Results will surprise you!

Inverse World: The Composer of Souls

composer1For a long as anyone can remember, the residents of the sleepy community of Hephaestus’ Link have lived in the shadow of the Great Necropolis. A hidden city of the dead that rests upon a massive island floating less that 10 miles from island-ring community. No one in the town knows who built it or how it came to rest so near to their remote trading islands.. While most of the residents of Hephaestus’ Link feel slightly unnerved with the silent city looming over their community, most consider it a benign structure, being only a source of ghost stories for the elders to scare their grandchildren. However, one of those stories seems to have come true. Tales of strange music and an unearthly howling has been circulating around the town by Cloud Sailors from visiting ships. Fearing the rumors could stop valuable trade ships from docking, the mayor of Hephaestus’ Link has called upon adventurers to investigate this hidden city of the dead and discover why it has suddenly come to life again…
