A Chaos Scar Adventure for 4th-level Characters
by Rob Wieland

Many adventurers come to the Chaos Scar looking for lost treasure, powerful magic, and vicious monsters to defeat. The Scar has all three in copious amounts, and some seek to make a profit by turning a negative into a positive—for them if nobody else. The beholder gauth named Shur-Tuuz is one such profiteer. But what exactly does it have in mind for those captured rust monsters?

The rectangular tower juts out of the ground, combining natural and structured features in unusual ways. Its sides are like craggy rock faces rather than smooth chiseled stone. Windows in the sides of the structure look like natural alcoves, yet the sun glints off glass set within each alcove. Two large doors at the base of the tower open into darkness, and the sounds of pick and shovel on stone echo within the structure.
