Return to the Decaying Manse


465 in stock

* You need the core set to play this delve.

Headmeister Dunberger Geiterheim is covered in scratches and questionable stains. Sure, it could be mustard, but judging from the state of the man, that’s not your first guess. Apparently, he was attacked by wererats in the old Decaying Manse and he blames you! The Headmeister wants you to go back in there and clear out every last wererat so he can return to his favorite brewery. You’re not sure how you got into this mess, but at least he’s offering to pay.

Get your gear and get ready, Rogues- we’re going back to where it all began. This adventure through the Decaying Manse will take you back down that old familiar hallway, but don’t get confused- a lot has changed since the last time you were here. Oh, and if you think Dunberger is telling you the whole truth, you have another thing coming.

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.
