FGS1 – Shrine of Maglubiyet

I like to present to you my first adventure in the Sidequest adventures series, Shrine of Maglubiyet.

My first adventure Sickness of the Gnarley Forest of the adventure path series was a success with over 100 downloads in the first three days! Thanks to everyone for the nice words and encouragement.

Shrine of Maglubiyet is an adventure for 4-6 players of 2nd level and starts around the City of Greyhawk but it is easily converted into any homebrew session. It is a good one-shot to teach newer players the ropes of D&D.

Adventure Synopsis

The adventurers travel to the Free City of Greyhawk when a group of bandits attack two other travellers. After they fend them off they are introduced to Kaloran, the grandson of a professor at Grey College.

Together they make their way to the institution and meet Professor Jusidan, the sage specialised in goblinoid creatures. The party finds out about a lost forgotten shrine to Maglubiyet, a hobgoblin deity, in midst of the Cairn Hills.

Equipped with a map the professor wants to investigate the holy place. He hires the adventurers to accompany him and his grandson. On the way through the Cairn Hills they encounter two twin ogres and the new inhabitants of the cave to the shrine, a xvart tribe.

But that is not all, a student of the professor’s knows about the shrine and promises a gang of thugs all the riches in the world could be found. Amidst all these sources of danger the party needs to protect professor Jusidan, an old man of 80 years. So he can see the wonders of the shrine of Maglubiyet.


The 20-page book consists of a detailed description how to run this adventure. Additionally, 2 battle maps, 1 map of the Domain of Greyhawk, 1 new magical item and two detailed Random Encounters tables (day and night) for the Cairn Hills are provided.

The party is hired to protect the workers and kill the attacking orcs. On the journey to the lumberyard the group encounters interesting people of the world and the new Fordkeep settlement.

Protecting the lumberjacks proves easier than thought. The orcs are weakened by a mysterious disease. They beg the party to help their tribe to find a cure in exchange for treasure and safety for the lumberyard.

The party, together with an orc ranger, sneaks past a big group of undeads to find a hidden base. The cult of Incabulos is training new people. What devilish plan are they following?
