Dungeons, Advanced (2e dungeon crawl group)



The dwarf eyed everyone assembled with a discerning glare. He was quite normal in appearance for one of his race, with rust-colored hair and a well-brushed beard, wearing simple leather armor with a dark grey cloak. His small apartment was also quite normal, and the fact that it was small was readily apparent as several adventure seekers and treasure hunters crammed in, standing elbow-to-elbow as they waited for him to speak.

Everyone in attendance had seen his advertisement on the board downstairs.

Wanted: Adventurers and treasure-seekers. I have located a long-abandoned dwarven temple, and a crypt underneath belonging to the ancient dwarves known as the Gravelstones. Treasure awaits! I have an apartment here in the Hidden Hole, upstairs in Room 6. We depart once a skilled party has been formed. Equal share of treasure guaranteed.


"I'm Gunter. Thank you for coming," he finally began, speaking with a low, steady voice. "The Gravelstone clan mined in the Troll Hills several centuries ago. As one of the last surviving members of the clan, my grandpappy told me stories of great wealth and prosperity, and the calamity that befell them. So, I've been searching the hills north of here to find their lost keep, with the aim to reopen those mines. I found one of their temples; a holy site dedicated to Sharindlar, dwarf goddess of love and dance. I had just started exploring it when a group of kobolds led by a pair of surly hobgoblins ran me off." He huffed, obviously a bit embarrassed, before he continued. "I believe there be a crypt underneath to one of the Gravelstones, and I'm hoping it'll lead me to where their hidden keep was located. I need ya'lls help in getting those critters cleaned out, and in finding the clues that'll lead us to the next step in reclaiming those mines."

Thus begins the Gravelstone Trilogy (Crypt of the Gravelstones, Keep of the Gravelstones, and Mines of the Gravelstones), a series of small dungeon crawls I've created that will test the mettle of an adventuring group. If you like fighting monsters, bypassing traps, and solving puzzles, this is the campaign for you. This game will be mostly just a series of dungeon crawls, most small-to-medium in size, set in the Forgotten Realms and using the AD&D 2E rules. You'll use the small city of Parthak I've created in the Fields of the Dead region as a base for these dungeon crawls.

I've got 3 players already, and I'd like to get at least 2-3 more to join the team. If you're interested, all the information is on the site to create a character (in the "Characters" tab). I'll make final player selections at the end of the month, so you've got a few weeks before we begin.
