A town is beset by incursions from strange creatures; constructs of metal, magic, and old bones. All signs point to the mysterious Quartztoil Tower, standing tall over the mountains to the north, and thought long abandoned. Rumors of the magical secrets contained within have not gone unnoticed, however, and others are drawn to the tower by dark dreams, and darker voices…

Variable Difficulty Adventures
This variable difficulty adventure is written specifically to be played at any level. Nord Games has experimented with this format in previous single-session modules, 'Creaking in the Dark' and 'Greenskin Diplomacy', and now are ready to begin releasing an entire product line. This is the first of the official new titles in the line, available in full-color perfect-bound softcover and/or PDF format.
The adventure is designed to take place in any campaign setting and is expected to take 3-5 game sessions to complete, depending on session length and party choices. The adventure is full of new monsters and items as well as a new and very interesting group of NPCs that not only play a major role in this adventure, but could be used in your wider campaign world. Will they be allies or adversaries?
About the Author
Nord Games are delighted to be working, for the first time, with long-term GM, and previous Kickstarter backer, Noah McCoy. Noah has been playing the World’s Greatest Role Playing game for 30 years, from the Red Box up to 5th edition. Taking on a Games Master role at an early age has lead him to write his own adventures for years and come up with new, exciting ways to have players experience Dungeons & Dragons. He finds that writing adventure modules is one of the best ways to express creativity in the game, and he is excited to share this creativity with the RPG community. When not rolling dice and managing monster hoards, Noah enjoys camping, hiking, cooking, and spending time with his family & dogs.
$6,000 Pre-generated Characters FREE - Who doesn't love some pre-gens that are already invested and connected to the story? At $6,000 we will create five original pre-generated characters that can be used in a one shot, or as options for new or additional players to fit them right into the story. This reward will be available as a PDF to download by all Kickstarter backers, for free, upon campaign fulfilment.
$8,000 Digital Maps FREE - How about some map files you can use to print and enjoy on your tabletop? Perhaps even for your virtual tabletop? We have you covered. All of the maps from the book will be found in this free bundle of map files at no extra charge, available to download by all Kickstarter backers.
$10,000 - Artwork Development FREE ADDITIONAL PAGES - You asked, we listened! We love our artwork, you love our artwork, but how'd it get made? We'll add a section to the end of the book, sharing conceptual and work-in-progress sketches to compare with the finished artwork, along with comments from our art director.
There won't be any add ons for this campaign. Any additional content will be automatically added through stretch goals.
Risks and challenges
The adventure is complete and is only waiting on finishing touches on artwork. We at Nord Games have great relationships with our printers, and we are planning on using one we've worked with many times before, though we have backup printers if need be. The only risk we can foresee are delays in delivery or production due to weather or other unexpected disaster!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
