A Chaos Scar Adventure
by Stephen Radney-MacFarland
“Sliver’s Call” is a short adventure for five 2nd-level characters that takes part in the Chaos Scar, near the King’s Wall. The characters become entwined in the rivalry of a pair of arcane scholars searching for a long-lost treasure. Both rivals are under the influence of psionic commands from a sliver of the Chaos Meteor that compel them to uncover it.
The promise of riches and adventure has called many to the Chaos Scar over the centuries, but other voices literally summon the gullible and the greedy with sinister and seductive words. Five years ago, the half-elf wizard Casaubon heard one of those voices in an unlikely place. While a student at the renowned White Lotus Academy of the arcane arts, the mage stumbled upon a githzerai memory crystal in a forgotten corner of the academy’s Lost Secrets Library.
