DnD Adv 1000 School Assignment Peak of Wisdom

Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

Adventures in AC 1000 – School Assignment – Peak of Wisdom

To the Peak of Wisdom

Source: The Principalities of Glantri (gaz3)

This adventure was originally part of the Basic Adventures section of Gazetteer 3 – Principalities of Glantri which I modified and one of the changes to be investigated as part of the Wrath of the Immortals storyline.

Glantri
gaz3 D&D BECMI Glantri

This features in the following sections:

  • Gazetteer – Glantri
  • Timeline
    • AC 1000School Assignment – Peak of Wisdom. 28th of Vatermont (02) while working for the Great School of Magic you get a chance to see the crystal trees in the mountains next to Glantri City.
  • AC 1000 – Glantri Mini Campaign Year 1

The Original Concept

“Yes, we were looking for the crystal trees, up there in the glaciers. One night, great fire balls fell from the sky and hit the mountain above our camp. It caused a huge avalanche and the next I remember, we were in bed, a dozen Ethengarian yellow faces looking at us! In fact, we had been rescued by mystics, these strange fellows who live high in our mountains: The Hospice of the Mystic Healers.

“They told us we were sick and we couldn’t leave before they gave us a cure. We had been exposed to strange spores coming from the fire ball. They were afraid of spreading the disease down at Lhamsa.

“But someone among the mystics was stalking us. We managed to find our foe, an Ethengarian priest and a dozen followers! They were victims of the same avalanche that got us. It was about then that we learned the mystics had a cure, but not enough for both the Ethengarians and us. We were getting weaker and it was the wrong season to find the right medicinal plants.

“So, claiming neutrality, the mystics organized a duel between the Ethengarians and us, in their special training room. Only the survivors would have the cure. The room was a bottomless pit with swaying vertical wooden beams coming up to our ledge. We had to jump from one beam to another and fight our opponents, while being weak and dizzy from the disease. We won. They let us go, but in exchange for our silence on the incident, they agreed to deliver saplings of the crystal trees in Lhamsa, whenever we would need them.”

Details

  • Adventure Level: 1-3, Basic
  • Topic: The Hospice of Mystic Healers and frictions with the Ten Thousand Fists of Khan.
  • Interesting Features: Fighting under tricky conditions while struggling against disease effects; see “Bells of Fate” in the Glantrian Calendar for the fire in the sky.
  • Campaign Hook: Recurring disease symptoms; the party must return to the Hospice from time to time, eventually meeting Song Anh. The Hospice may serve as a starting point for more mountain adventures (sasquatch hunt, lost hermit, recovering a lost meteorite, etc.).

The Outcome

Was run as part of the Glantrian mini campaign as year 1 at the great school of magic. This could be run anytime in the first three game years.
