0one's Blueprints: Cairns PDF
Built under mounds of stone, these ancient structures stand as memorial or burial grounds for great kings, emperors or legendary warriors of the past. Perhaps the cairn is the most fascinating fantasy location ever, and certainly it is the most played in fantasy RPGs. Traditionally, cairns are filled with precious treasures, ancient belongings of defunct heroes and, of course, sleepless monsters. Undead roam the silent underhalls and guard the forgotten crypts, waiting eagerly for some fools who dare to descend in the darkness of their domains. In this product, you will find five different cairns you can use in your adventures. The cairns may be used individually or as part of a greater complex
Here are some adventure hooks:
Round Cairn: While in another dungeon, the PCs find themselves transported to this cairn, appearing on one of the Gate Rooms. The gates of the cairn begin to produce monsters at constant rate, and the PCs must find a way out before being overwhelmed. Perhaps the key for opening the entrance portal lies in the central room, but some riddles must be overcome as well.
Emperor's Cairn: The good emperor has lain in his death slumber for a thousand years. It is said he was put to sleep by magic for an unknown reason. Now, a young scholar has found the key to awaken the man and bring a good ruler to the world. The forces of evil will try to destroy the remains of the king by awakening dreaded undead from their graves in the cairn. The PCs are hired to retrieve the remains of the emperor and perform the ritual to awaken him but they must confront the undead rising into the tomb.
King's Cairn: The PCs are searching for the crown of an ancient king in the cairn. They find it in the sepulcher, but if worn, the crown turns the PC into a powerful lich, who awakens all the undead in the cairn. The only way for the PCs to escape is to spark the loyalty in the undead that had been the King's Guard and persuade them to fight for their king.
Ruined Cairn: The PCs venture into a ruined cairn, which is infested by goblins. They discover ancient memorials of a vanished race. When they arrive to battle with the goblin leader, they discover he is a strange crossbreed. The PCs will be able to defeat him only if they have gathered enough clues from the ancient cairn.
Multilevel Cairn: A strange spell has been cast on this cairn: it influences the alignment of the undead who guard the ancient treasures. The PCs are caught in a war erupting in the cairn. The key is an evil necromancer who seeks a lost artifact kept in the cairn and who found an unusual way to destroy the guarding undead.
The Blueprints product line offers you old-fashioned blueprint-style maps for your adventures and campaigns. Each map includes a blueprint version and a standard black-and-white version. The maps are all vector-based for maximum print resolution. Despite their old-fashioned appearance, each map offers a degree of customization by taking full advantage of pdf technology. A small control bar (which will not be printed) on each map allows you to turn the grid on and off, eliminate the room numbers, fill the walls, or hide doors and furniture.
Each product features a classic fantasy adventure location: a dungeon, a keep, a temple complex, a thieves' guild and so on. You can use these maps as reference to build your own adventures or simply have them at hand in case your players go in an unexpected direction during the campaign.
While offering you the best quality, these products are really inexpensive.
