Critical Hits #2 - All That Glitters
an encounter by Simon Lucas
Critical Hits encounters take a closer
look at situations that are frequently ignored in the course of a campaign. This popular range of products can be easily inserted into an existing campaign or as a one-shot diversion between adventures, filling your games with unusual and interesting,
sometimes comical but always memorable encounters.
In All That Glitters,
the characters are at the end of a long trek; the kind of thing heroes undertake
all the time. With barely an arrow to share between them the intrepid adventurers hurry
to the little town of Havelock where they soon become the victims
of a scam. The crooks intend to take Havelock for thousands of gold pieces in a single day:
can the players find out the truth?
