And another series starts with " Scar night" by Alan Campbell. Are Fallen gods, an immortal assassin and a suspended city high magic enough?:)

Have the ranger discover that the PCs are coming. The ranger and his slaver buddies try to trap the PCs and sell them into slavery.
Of the top of my head,
P.S.Check out the messageboards for tips on running the module :)
If you liked book 1, book 2 and 3 is more of the same :)
"The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia" by Professor James C. Scott - How different cultures create, coexist and exploit each other.
"The Strain Trilogy" by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan . Vampires as a virus.
Assassins of the Turquoise Palace by Roya Hakakian. Iranian intelligence agency killing dissidents.
"Wise mans fear", by Patrick Rothfuss. A bit long-winded and not as good as the first book(which was very good).
"Strange piece of paradise ", by Terry Jentz. Its been 15 years since someone tried to kill the author and her friend. Now she tries to find out what happened that night and why no one was arrested.
Recommendations; something by Joe Abercrombie, R. Scott Bakker, Chris Wooding or Scott Lynch ?
In my homebrew setting the gods were gone.
As a result the undead became more of a challenge;)
After heavy rains - flash floods who flush workers down ravines or cenotes. The cenotes can be very deep (race against time to save before drowning), or inhabited by low level undead or a large snake .
Killer bees, stirges , spreading fear.
After storms - trees will have fallen - slowing down roadwork , maybe near a monster lair? The workers need to woork faster and silently to avoid notice?
A choker or ettercap picking of workers one by one.
Some of the worker work for the local thievesguild, stealing equipment and planning to rob the the guys who come with the pay roll:)

Deeply held beliefs do not respond to arguments on the internet:).
Dungeon Issue #146
Escape from Meenlock Prison
A winery uses prisoners as workers. The Prisoners have taken control and lets the PC's "escort" their prisoner down in the dungeon under the winery. Meenlocks , small creatures that uses illusions and drains wisdom have broken into the dungeon and uses the rest of the prisoners/guards as food or bait:) .
Oh and it has lots of Roleplay moments, there is a dinnerparty, a rather "changeable" old biddy, the senile butler, the investigation itself, the dogs...As DM you get to ham it up;)
Dungeon Issue #128
Drop this in any city. It is a good short adventure you can develop into a bigger one(more foreshadowing, the PCs knows one of the victims, etc)
