Murder Knights of Corvendark is a lvl-4 adventure in a dark fantasy world for 4-5 players in wich the characters have to investigate the attacks of some assassin ‘crows’. It can be introduced to any campaign in a dark setting.
Within the subterranean caverns beneath Wychington — on the shores of Lake Grimwater — a small part of a region from afar, either long ago, or maybe a time yet to pass, has come into existence. Malign and abhorrent half-men, half-crows inhabit this harrowing place. Standing menacingly, clad in the darkest armour, or on their pitch-black wings protected by lighter, piecemeal leather armour, they murder men and feast on their flesh. Strangely resentful of their barely-feathered gods, they despise other living creatures for drawing breath.
This is Corvendark, and under the sign of an inverted, five-skulled star, the Murder Knights dwell.
Since the coming of this otherworldly realm, the Grimwater Lake region has been plagued by the atrocities of the ‘harpies’ — as they have been incorrectly identified — regularly raiding the surface lands. None have been ravaged more so than Wychington, a small town on the northern lake edge at the mouth of the Lesselling River.
It is now that heroes are needed. Who will destroy this menace, or send them back whence they came?
