CORS8-01 Whispers of the Obsidian Citadel by Dave Christ and Tim Sech
People, objects, and even places seem to be shifting in and out of existence in the Yatil’s west of the great city of Mitrik. Chaos seems to be unravelling existence itself and it’s spreading. Seers speak of the "Door to Perdition" but even the gods themselves seem to be silent on exactly what is happening. Great things are afoot and while nations focus their attention on each other it is up to heroes to find out what is going on before it’s too late and all of Oerth burns in the fires perdition forever. This adventure is the first part of the Ascension plot arc and also concludes the For the Greater Good series. This adventure is EXTREMELY dangerous and should not be undertaken lightly. True heroes are forged in the glowing hot coals of struggle and true heroes it will take to win through this day. A two-round core special adventure set in Veluna and the Yatil Mountains for characters level 5-15 (APLs 6-14).
