Protecting Sir Grumpferd


462 in stock

* You need the core set to play this delve.

There isn’t much in the realm of work this week, so you’ve begrudgingly agreed to protect Sir Grumpferd on his journey. He is indeed the most famous knight in Rotbottom, as everyone knows what a pain in the ass he is. He’s paying in coin, however, and gods know you need it. According to the knight, it’s just a short walk through the woods. How bad can it be?

Except that there’s something that Sir Grumpferd isn’t telling you and there are a lot of angry goblins trying to kill him. What should have been a simple walk in the woods is quickly turning into a major pain in the ass. To make matters worse, Sir Grumpferd is a bigger danger to your Rogues than the Dire Wolves. I guess there’s no such thing as an easy delve, huh?

Marching Order Quick and Dirties are short, no nonsense adventure delves that fold out into a 6 panel poster. Get in, pillage what you can, and try to get out alive, all in a single session. From escorting knight to robbing wizards, they’re great for a quick game night treat. Oh, and don’t worry- just like any Marching Order delve, they have plenty of bullshit.

Digging in the Sand

Bones. So many bones. How many people have been buried here?

You find a rusty long sword and a small, golden vulture head worth 250 gp.

Red Sand

The sand here on the edge of the sacrificial ground is loose and looks recently churned.

Vulture Priest

The Vulture Priests are the enemy of knowledge and enlightenment. They seek to bring the eternal silence, the end of all things. Decay and obedience is their only god.

Immune to the Divine: The spells and powers of clerics and paladins have no effect on them.
Weapons: They frequently use wickedly curved daggers, which they use for sacrificial purposes.
Soul Clouders: There is a 10% chance that any Vulture Priest can use the sleep spell once per day. The targets are still awake, but they are beset by such a deep depression that it has the same effect as sleep. They may only watch what unfurls around them.
