The Dark Eye - Witch's Dance
PDF and Print. 16 pages. Color cover and interior art.
This is actually a rather good adventure to introduce people to The Dark Eye game.
Briefly, we have an evil warlock taking control of a small coven of witches. But one witch, Alevtia, refuses to submit. Luckily she finds the heroes. That's you all.
This is a detective story and wilderness adventure. So social skills are just as important as combat here. The characters will need to meet with the other members of the sisterhood to get all the details they need. But that also puts them in contact with the Warlock Codax, and he needs items from the heroes (hair, blood, saliva) to make his curses work.
There are plenty of interesting tables of rumors and various locations all throughout the area including a forest. There is even an ogre nearby (and stats for him) and "Predatory Mushrooms!" The adventure feel like a fairy tale.
Of course, the goal is to stop the warlock. He doesn't have to be killed even, there is a potion to turn him into a toad for example.
It is perfect for a couple of afternoons and even better for new players.
