The Forlorn Temple of Umbras
Suitable for characters levels 2 to 4
South of the trade port of Aldromos, along a rough stretch of largely uninhabited coast in the Golmadran Swamplands can be found this ancient, remote temple. The mysterious god that was once the center of worship in the subterranean complex has been lost to time, and it is known to local tribes only as the domain of the enigmatic dead god Umbras. The temple is regarded as haunted, and some local tribesmen claim that the ancient cult of Umbras once opened a gate to the Plane of Shadow, so as to commune with their penumbral god. The cult, as the story goes, was slain before this rift could be closed, and dark things seep from it, including the dead seeking to return to life, as well as other malevolent spirits who seem to prey upon the living. Amongst those who still visit the temple are the mysterious and xenophobic Sattasarin lizard men of the region.
Includes a module designed for play in two or three evenings; statistics on the Living Godflesh of Umbras, the Risen Godflesh template, and the Black Heart of Umbras artifact.
