AC 1003 – Mystery in Atruaghin’s Palace – The Concept

The ancient ruined city of tamoachan is familiar to a select few scholars and fortune seekers, who know of it but not always exactly where it is. Even more secluded, lying somewhere within or beneath the ruins, is a hidden shrine said to be dedicated to Zotzilaha, the vampire god of the underworld. Adventurers who catch wind of the place are likely to find its lure irresistible.

If the characters find their way to the environs of the ruined city, their next order of business might be to set up a camp nearby. After a few hours of searching, they can find an easily defended glade with an artesian spring.

Most of the city is toppled and almost completely overed in undergrowth. Intruders who enter the ruins will discover that the ancient streets now serve as over-grown “valleys” between the debris of the crumbled buildings. The largest of these valleys all lead to the central clearing where a great pyramid stands.

In the south side of that clearing is a newly collapsed area, revealing a jagged hole with a debris-covered slide, leading down into darkness.

AC 1003 – Mystery in Atruaghin’s Palace – The Reveal

In AC 1000, the group travelled to the site of Atruaghin’s Palace and explored the city. They spent ten sessions exploring the complex interracting with various ancient, and not so ancient powers of the world.

Tidal managed to procreate, and they ended the storyline having been caught in a time lock (allowing time to progress to the correct year for the group level). Tribesmen have been warned away from the location until they are freed of the timelock by Drazzle a dragonborn who had to recover the means to free them.

AC 1003 – Mystery in Atruaghin’s Palace – The Outcome

They cleansed the ruins of the corrupting force of Atzanteotl, but lost two of the tribesmen in the process.
