Asticlian Gambit DSQ3
The palace of the Forest Queen contains treasures unimaginable. To the sons and daughters of Athas's harsher climes¸ Gulg and the Crescent Forest seem almost perversely lush¸ a jumble of green and growing things hording precious water for the benefit of the few. But while basking in the glow of Lalali-Puy's gratitude¸ your characters have the richness of the forest at your beck and call. Of course¸ the Oba's sensibilities are easily bruised¸ and her nature is notoriously unforgiviing. Gulg's dank dungeons are only a staging area to a deadly ceremony¸ where the young nobles of the city chase prisoners through the forest to earn their places as lord of their city - the Red Moon Hunt. Designed for four to six characters of 7th to 10th level¸ Asticlian Gambit makes them pawns in a dangerous game between the Oba of Gulg¸ the Shadow King of Nibenay¸ and mysterious representatives of the Asticles family of Tyr. A stand-alone adventure¸ Asticlian Gambit can also be played as the sequel to Freedom¸ Road to Urik¸ and Arcane Shadows.
