I proudly present the first adventure in my adventure path “In the City’s Shadows” for D&D 5e the first of many adventures on this website.

“Sickness of the Gnarley Forest” is the start of an epic campaign in the world of Greyhawk. It is made for a party of 4-6 players of 2nd level and is great to introduce players into the Greyhawk setting.

Don’t hesitate to take a look for your homebrew campaign as the adventure can be easily converted to any setting.

Adventure Synopsis

A new lumberyard was established in the Gnarley Forest, but the morale of the workers is low because of recent attacks by orcish raider.

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?

Adventure Content

The 45-page book contains detailed description how to run the adventure as well as 8 battlemaps and 1 overview map of the Domain of Greyhawk that can be used separately for your own campaign. Additionally, 9 different NPCs are introduced with original stat blocks for 5th Edition. They contain personality traits, ideals, flaws, bonds and tips for roleplaying. Perfect for Dungeon Master’s who want a deeper story behind their NPCs.

Lastly, I hope you guys enjoy the adventure and I appreciate any type of feedback and critic. Make sure to download the map pack with unmarked maps to print or use for your online campaign.
