DnD Adv 1000 Mistaken Identity Gambler

Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

Adventures AC 1000 – Mistaken Identity – Gambler

Milenium in the Streets

Source: The Grand Duchy of Karameikos (gaz1)

This adventure was originally part of the Basic Adventures section of Gazetteer 1 – The Grand Duchy of Karameikos which I modified and one of the changes to be investigated as part of the Wrath of the Immortals storyline.

Karameikos
gaz1 – D&D BECMI The Grand Duchy of Karameikos

This features in the following sections:

  • Gazetteer – Karameikos
  • Timeline
    • AC 1000 – Mistaken Identity – Gambler. Confused with a notorious gambler, and find a doppelganger look alike.

The Original Concept

The New Year’s Millenium celebration, lasting several days, begins as the characters are in Specularum. Pick one of the PCs to be the victim of a cruel chance of fate: he looks just like a famous gambler known in these parts, and that gambler, just last night, swindled a lot of people out of a lot of money.​

This is the celebration of AC 1,000, which is 1,000 years since the crowning of the first emperor of Thyatis.​

As the characters wander the busy streets, this character will be cursed by one family now reduced to poverty, attacked by a car-player cheated by the gambler, and so forth. Eventually, the character will catch sight of his double and have to embark on a crazy chase through the crowds of celebrants if he’s to find out what it’s all about. The gambler can be coerced into returning the money for happy ending all around… but only after the confusion described above.​

Details

  • Adventure Level: 1-5, Basic (converts to 1 to 5)
  • Topic: New Year celebrations, 1,000 years of the Thyatian Empire.
  • Interesting Features: doppelganger look alike.
  • Campaign Hook: The gambling circuit of Specularum.

The Outcome

Not run as part of the campaign.

Can be run anywhere in the first five years of the campaign from year One to Year Five, and can be adapted to run at other levels as an ongoing adventure option.

Conclusion

More to be written about the outcome.
