Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
Adventures in AC 1005 – School Assignment – Beggars Court
The Lords of Beggars Court
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.
This features in the following sections:
- Gazetteer – Glantri
- AC 1005 – School Assignment – Beggars Court. While on assignment from the Great School of Magic your tasked with finding a nobles son and an artefact he stole lost in Beggars Court.
The Original Concept
“Anyway, our new fortunes were quickly spent and again we looked for new and exciting tasks. A local baron’s seneschal hired us for a mission. The baron’s son ran away after a dispute and stole a powerful crystal device. We were to retrieve him, and above all, the precious crystal.
“A lengthy investigation brought us back to the city. We’d heard he’d been seen suffering from a loathsome rotting disease. Fearing an epidemic, the building’s tenants threw him out with his personal effects and drove him to the Beggars’ Court.
“We went there wearing rags and illusions to look deformed and sickly. Avoiding the beggars’ king was tough, but eventually we made it to the dungeons. The place was infested with slimes and other horrors. We found the young noble, but he was a mere shadow of himself, nearly dead. A secret passage out of Beggars’ Court led us out of the city. We brought the son back, barely alive, and his crystal. The device radiated an aura of fear and uneasiness; we were glad to get rid of it and get our reward.”
- Adventure Level: 6-8, Expert
- Topic: Beggars’ Court and the Brotherhood of the Radiance.
- Interesting Features: Mission in Beggars Court; a crystal device related to the Radiance; its aura leaks some clues to the PCs on the Brotherhood.
- Campaign Hook: King Ratibus seeks revenge for the loss of his new recruit and the crystal. The baron may sponsor the PCs if they wish to enter the Brotherhood.
It is set after the Glantrian Mini campaign as year 6 at the great school of magic, was the alternate storyline available. Could be run anytime in the sixth to eight years in Glantri.
