Act 1: Stolen Land

C. Ancient Tomb

From the Waterlogged Lowland: 1) W x2, 2) S. From Oleg’s Trading Post: 1) S, 2) SE, 3) W, 4) S x3.

If you went to Thorn Ford before coming here, Tartuccio and his companions will be gone and you will miss an opportunity to regain a companion at this time.

Events
  1. Encounter with Tartuccio (or just the Mercenaries if you do Thorn Ford first).
    • You can convince one of the two companions that left with Tartuccio to join you with a Diplomacy DC 10 check (9 exp). This companion will be level 1 and will not last long against the enemies. They will join you after the battle and be at least partially healed, even if they were defeated in this battle. Personally, I like starting with Valerie and Linzi and picking up Jaethal here. There are four enemies: Tartuccio’s Mercenary (Fighter 3), Tartuccio’s Mercenary x2 (Fighter 2), and Tartuccio’s Mercenary (Wizard 2). This can be a difficult fight with 2nd level characters.
    • My recommendation is to move your entire team around the ranged fighter at the south of the battle. Since she’s ranged, she won’t take attacks of opportunity against Linzi or your main character (if he or she is a squishy), and that will let your party get an advantage against the enemies. Linzi (and any other arcane caster that lacks the Precise Shot feat will likely be more effective by constantly using Daze (0) against enemies in melee against your party than actually attacking them. Her crossbow attacks can be effective against enemies that are not in melee, such as the Wizard.

    • The Fighter 3 will drop a Longsword +1. You might want to give this to Valerie if she's in your party and have Amiri use her Masterwork Bastard Sword for now (to improve Amiri’s attack rolls). The Wizard 2 will drop a Scorched Fragment of a Necklace, a Light Crossbow, and a Scroll of Ray of Enfeeblement. The Scorched Fragment is a relic piece you should save for later. The Archer will have a Composite Longbow.
  2. Secret Door Trigger (Perception DC 12). If you went to Thorn Ford first, the hidden door will already be open.
  3. Trap (Perception DC 17, Trickery DC 17 - 22 exp): the party is attacked by 5 Magic Missiles if triggered (1d4+1 damage each).

Treasure if you came to the Ancient Tomb before the Thorn Ford
  1. Scroll of Protection from Chaos, 23 gold, Silver Spoon, Scroll of Summon Monster I, Garnet Ring.
  2. Clear Quartz, Scroll of Corrosive Touch, Silver-Embroidered Purse, 9 gold.
  3. Tombstone (Perception DC 17): Ancient Cyclops Coin.
  4. 25 gold, Silver Bell, Silver Inkwell, Artificial Flower.
Treasure if you went to the Thorn Ford before the Ancient Tomb
  1. Potion of Shield of Faith, 23 gold.
  2. Silver Ring, 3 gold, Scroll of Cure Light Wounds.
  3. Tombstone (Perception DC 17): Ancient Cyclops Coin.
  4. 5 gold, Garnet Ring, Scroll of Ray of Enfeeblement.
Leaving the Area

Leaving from the southwest exit begins a storybook event. Save before leaving if you want to make sure to complete this event.

  • First page: The trail of Tartuccio and his companions has gone cold. You can: 1) follow (Lore: Nature DC 11 (22 exp) or 2) give up.
    • Following (option 1) and succeeding on the Lore: Nature check lets you continue chasing; advance to the Second page.
    • Failure on the check or picking option 2 ends the event and returns you to the world map.
  • Second page: The trail splits. You can: 1) examine claw marks (Lore: Nature DC 14 - 26 exp on success), 2) study the trail, 3) use Detect Magic to look for traces of magic, 4) examine the path that snakes along the gully, 5) follow the path down into the gully, or 6) follow the path along the gully.
    • Options 1-4 give clues on where to go.
    • Going into the gully (option 5) will keep following the trail. Advance to the Third page.
    • Following the path beside the gully will lead to a fight with: Kobold Alchemist x2 (Alchemist 2), Kobold Sentinel x2 (Fighter 2), and Kobold Archer (Fighter 2). They don’t carry anything noteworthy, and you will lose Tartuccio’s trail, so it’s not worth it.
  • Third page: The path is difficult. 1) Continue going (Mobility DC 11 - 9 exp) or 2) give up.
    • Following (option 1) and succeeding on the Mobility check leads you to the Pine Patch.
    • Failure on the check or picking option 2 ends the event and returns you to the world map.
