An Adventure for 10th Level Characters
Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics don’t waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren’t meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you fear, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.
This special tournament module was used for the Second Annual Dungeon Crawl Classics Open Tournament at Gen Con Indy 2005. It includes the official tournament scoring system, pregenerated characters, and illustrated player handouts. In the lofty reaches of a distant mountain range lies an ancient vault shrouded in mystery. An evil dragon has penetrated the vault in order to bring about a new age of dragons — an age that has no place for the likes of man, dwarf or elf. Only the heroes can stop him!
