Of Fire and Venom: Monstrous Pages for Shadow of the Demon Lord

Of Fire and Venom: Monstrous PagesFew creatures evoke the fear and wonder that dragons do. Even their smaller kin, the drakes, drive people and animals alike to scatter for shelter and avoid the notice of these keen-eyed hunters of the skies. Their majesty and their inherent cruelty make dragons and drakes even larger than life in song and legend.

Tales abound of dragons’ treasures and of those brave heroes who would beard the monsters in their lairs, whether to plunder a hoard, save a captive, or put an end to the beasts’ vile depredations. Such tales paint dragons as easily defeated, but in truth they are no cringing beasts to be cornered and slain. They fight with terrifying ferocity and deadly cunning. Dragons have nothing to fear from would-be heroes—as the twisted bits of armor and weapons decorating their lairs testify.

Of Fire and Venom reveals the secrets of dragons, drakes, and similar creatures, offering new options for customization and new variants with which you can torment the player characters and frustrate their plans.

The Last Train to Darksville: An Adventure for Master Characters

Last Train to Darksville: An Adventure for Master CharactersA rail caravan from Devil’s Breach to Darksville has failed to show up for three days running, and no one in Devil’s Breach can figure out why. It’s up to the player characters to investigate what’s keeping the trains from running on time as they ride what may well be the last train to Darksville.

Last Train to Darksville is an adventure designed for master characters. Lower-level characters had best not apply.

Background

Devil’s Breach is a dark little town on the edge of an empty land, somewhere on the continent of Rûl. The people there don’t have much to offer the world other than the geographic location of their home, which makes it an excellent stopping point for travelers making their way to far-flung locations. Wagon trains used to stop at the town for supplies on their way in and out of the wastes, and the new railroad that goes through town follows the long tradition. Devil’s Breach is a dark little town on the edge of an empty land, somewhere on the continent of Rûl. The people there don’t have much to offer the world other than the geographic location of their home, which makes it an excellent stopping point for travelers making their way to far-flung locations. Wagon trains used to stop at the town for supplies on their way in and out of the wastes, and the new railroad that goes through town follows the long tradition.

While the wagon train managed to slip through the wastes without drawing too much attention, the loud steam engines belching soot into the sky are another matter entirely and have recently roused a dragon from his slumber in the nearby badlands. The monster makes regular ventures from his lair to prey upon the iron machine, its precious cargo, and its ill-fated passengers.  So far, the dragon has taken out two trains along this desolate stretch of track. The Darksville Railway only has three trains in total. The third leaves from Devil’s Breach tomorrow at dawn.
