The sixth downloadable GM-SS Dungeons and Dragons One Shot Adventure
Whether it’s for a one-shot adventure, starting a longer story, or just another day in your players’ lives, we hope this adventure module will inspire all you DMs and GMs out there. This time we’ll show you how to run a prison break adventure, provide you with several encounter maps and help you run a one-shot, that will (hopefully) increase your player’s teamwork.
Big cities and organized crime usually go hand in hand. Yet, the holy city of Kalke seems to harbour no unsavoury elements whatsoever. The streets are both clean and safe. There are no black-markets, no gambling houses, and no brothels. The devout citizens of Kalke attribute their peace to the wise leadership of their Gods’ representative on Earth: Praetor Benin of Catena. It is said, that through his wise leadership, no evil shall ever be able to put down roots into Kalke. Any sinner caught within the city’s walls will be purified in the temple of Catena Rock and emerge as a God-fearing citizen. However, tales and legends do not always reflect the entire truth. In reality, Praetor Benin rules his city of chains through religious fear-mongering and propaganda. The famous Catena Rock may look like a temple, but it functions much like prison. Within its halls, dissenters either get worked to death or “encouraged” to swear their loyalty the theocracy of Kalke. Rumor also has it, that an ancient God is bound to an altar under Catena Rock, devouring the souls of the sinners trapped within.
In this 5-8-hour campaign, a party of 6th to 8th level characters will be thrown into Catena Rock. Chained together and under the mercy of the insane head-warden Ava, they’ll either escape or spend the rest of their lives in servitude to the theocracy of Kalke. Will the party be able to find a way out? Is there any truth to the weird rumour of a God sleeping under Catena Rock? It is up to the players to find out. Otherwise, they will forever remain “Bound in Chains”.
