The Grand Mithraeum: Enter the Dungeon!

Beneath the Grand Mithraeum lies twisting catacombs and dark dungeons. Those who know the truth of what lies below it are set on protecting its secrets. The past kings, queens, and lamanes lay entombed beneath the temple, as well as ancient artifacts that the dragon gods would prefer remain forgotten.

This week, we delve into the top floor of this dungeon. The goal is to have a new floor every week, complete with NPCs, monsters, treasures, puzzles, and a bunch of other cool stuff. The rumors of treasure might be enough to get PCs to venture below, but they’ll eventually find why it is guarded so strongly…

A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Grand Mithraeum

A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Amrin Leaf

The Amrin leaf comes from the Nahj Amrinitas plant that is native to the mid-northern shores of Qua’Lorn. While a few have cultivated it, most do not bother, as it grows plentiful in the wild. Many lands have outlawed it’s possession, but those that live in its native habitat need only ask the right person if they want it. One can tell an Amrin Leaf eater by their teeth.

A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Del Harun

I do not fear them, as they are simple merchants. I do, however, fear their dreams. I am almost certain that demons visit them during the night. I have heard their screams upon waking. I have seen one kill another over a slight she had suffered in a dream. They believe their nighttime visions to be real!

And yet… I have spoken to a Del Harun woman who knew things of me she could not possibly know. She claimed to have seen them in a dream. I am not one to be given to superstition, but what else am I to think? My stomach tightens as I remember her words and I forever await the assassins knife she foretold. Yes, I value their trade, but truly, their nocturnal journeys make it hard for me to sleep.

Selid Quazar, Patriarch of house Quazar in Zan Zan Turina.

Del Harun claim to have ancient dragon blood in their veins. While there are none who can prove or disprove this, it is obvious to those who travel with them for any amount of time that they are not mere humans. These desert nomads ride their horses across the burning sands of Qua’Lorn, resting each night to dream. They carry what they see at night into the day.

A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: Samsarras.

Before all things, there was the void, the realm of Sribinet. It would become the demon realm and birth the first of its kind. Braxult, Queen of Death and Peace, would create the world below, the Isles of Samsarras. They would torture the races of their making and bask in their screams. The songs of agony floated into the heavens. Continue reading “A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: Samsarras.”

A Traveler’s Guide to Samsarras: The Ankhor’s Dive Inn

History

Perched upon a rocky outcropping over the sea, Ankhor’s Dive is a  haven for the less than reputable visitors to Dane Caelen. This lively tavern and wayside inn draws an eclectic mix of dwarven sailors, human nomads, and elves doing business best not done inside the city proper. It is located on the outskirts of the city, along the northern coast. A torched lined path draws patrons in and, with luck, helps them find their way out again after imbibing fine imported dwarven spirits.

Crumbling UpKeep: Traps. Who does this to their home?

Traps are a classic part of Dungeons and Dragons, so much so that entire books have been made about them. They grown to be ever more complicated through the years, always adding more pulleys and strange fail safes in an effort to confuse and trick the players. Until recent editions, they were one of the big reasons you always had a thief in the party, as no one else had a chance to notice them.
