The Bane of the Ancients is a 0- or 1st-level Mutant Crawl Classics-compatible adventure inspired by zombie horror…and the horrors of office life!
When an infectious horde starts ravaging the land, a bold party of adventurers agrees to travel deep into the Slouismo Fen, where legend has it an ancient temple in the center of a dead lake holds a powerful relic known only as the “Bane of the Ancients.”
Players will face horrible monsters and discover wondrous relics of the Ancients, like the small humanoid figurine with an oversized head that bobbles on its neck. They may dare to drink from the ancient water shrine sitting upon a three-foot-tall pedestal, where the Ancients gathered to swap stories with one another. But can they find the cure and return to their village in time to save it?
Take the adventure and find out!
