The idyllic mountain village of Sarwin has long been one of the most relaxing and secluded locations in the nation. Situated on the edge of civilization in the shadow of remote forested mountains, this tiny town is an ideal place to retire after a long life of adventuring. Watched over by the benevolent Sarwin family in their nearby castle, it is a place strangely untouched by the barbaric orc tribes and sinister monsters of the nearby wilderness. Only the mysterious earthquakes mar the scene, and they've been receding in power and frequency over the last several decades until they are now all but forgotten. Certainly nothing dire could happen here. Certainly this place can last forever...right?
Drop this free online adventure for D&D v.3.5 by James Jacobs into your campaign world anywhere on the border between civilization and a wilderness mountain range.
Suitable for four 17th-level characters.
