More > tavern. Her face is almost completely hidden behind a black shroud, her walk is cat-like and she attracts the men’s gazes. She approaches the portly innkeeper and talks to him briefly, then he points towards the characters. The woman sits down at a reserved table behind a screen. Straight away, one of the grim orclins approaches you and says in a perfect human dialect: “Begging your pardon sir, my lady wishes to speak with you, would you be so kind as to follow me to her table?” This is a generic adventure set in a small town. It can be inserted easily into any world. The adventure is designed for a party of four to five adventurers of levels 4-5, but it can be scaled easily by modifying the number of creatures.< Less

A Thin Ghost and Others By Montague Rhodes James

More > its block on a side table. He was a man of some fifty-five years, strongly made, of a sanguine complexion, an angry eye, and a long upper lip. Face and eye were lighted up at the moment when I picture him by the level ray of an afternoon sun that shone in upon him through a tall sash window, giving on the west. The room into which it shone was also tall, lined with book-cases, and, where the wall showed between them, panelled. On the table near the doctor's elbow was a green cloth, and upon it what he would have called a silver standish—a tray with inkstands—quill pens, a calf-bound book or two, some papers, a churchwarden pipe and brass tobacco-box, a flask cased in plaited straw, and a liqueur glass. The year was 1730, the month December, the hour somewhat past three in the afternoon.< Less
