“The Brothers Gray” is a short adventure for five 1st-level characters that takes place in the Chaos Scar, near the King’s Wall. “The Brothers Gray” takes the PCs into the ruins of an abandoned mining outpost, where they must contend with a trio of murderous halflings. If you’re not playing a Chaos Scar campaign, you can still use this adventure by integrating it into any existing campaign situated near a wilderness area that had mining operations at some point in the past.
Firelight flickers through the trees ahead. Built against the side of the canyon is a ramshackle mining operation, its head frame and hoist house built onto a wide ledge above and formerly powered by a water wheel in a stream-fed pool. Rickety stairs climb the outside of this structure. At its base, a group of bedrolls have been laid out around a campfire. Three rough-looking men lounge about and talk among themselves.
