Near the old dwarven road lies a tiny hamlet called Frohenfeld. Its not quite 40 inhabitants mostly make their living growing fruit. They are particularly proud of their cider, which has secured the village a decent income. Their business has been flourishing in recent years, thanks to exceptionally good harvests and steady demand. In good times like these the Frohenfeldians are regarded as friendly and open-hearted. However, there have been times, where the entire village was known for its fickle and calculating inhabitants. Usually, a place like this would never arouse the suspicion of the authorities. However, a few days ago one of the Archmage’s couriers vanished near the town on his way to the capital. Since he was carrying a priceless amulet, the Archmage’s agents immediately offered a bounty to anybody able to recover the lost artefact. Solving the case will therefore not only yield a princely reward, it will also grant some amount of political capital.
In this 1 – 3-hour adventure, a group of first to second level characters are sent to investigate the quiet Frohenfeld. Yet, what starts as an easy stroll through the countryside soon turns into a farce. A multi-layered intrigue which is bound to leave a sour aftertaste – or how the Frohenfeldians would put it: a truly “Accursed Apple Twist”!
