The Conqueror Worm is a 1E module designed for 6-8 adventurers of levels 10-14. Over five centuries ago, there came unto the arctic lands of the North from a far removed dimension an elder being of... More > unfathomable menace. The White Worm, as it was called by the scholars, was a colossal creature with rubbery, corpse-white skin. The primitive humans the foul beast encountered were ill-equipped to deal with the manifold, eldritch magicks in its possession. However, before the dread worm could wholly enslave the Northern lands, the great frost giant jarl Harold Hardrada managed to deal it a near-fatal blow.

In the morning, you wake to find the hermit and all his possessions gone, all except for two golden tiles: one embossed with the image of a bull with his horns down and ready to charge, the other a tiger poised and ready to pounce.
