Garden of the Gods

Garden of the Gods (Palladium Fantasy/System Neutral) — A Foundation for Consequential Campaigns

Standing before the south Verdant Gate, one of four entrances to the fabled Garden of the Gods, your party stops for a moment to take in the sight. Just past the entrance, rays of light cut through the humid air, dispersing and refracting off the lush foliage, creating a myriad of rainbows like a weave of spiritual luminescence. Butterflies and birds flit to and fro, playfully chased by tiny sprites and faeries. Colors saturate the landscape. The empty space in between things even looks tangible.

Chaalt

Cha’alt (5e/OSR) — Mind-Bending Psychotropic Madhouse

Beneath the unforgiving dual suns of Cha’alt, the week-long trek through the desert wasteland known as S’kbah has left your party of adventurers hanging by a thread. Armor has been shed to avoid exhaustion, loot has been forsaken in favor of water, and with radiation pills in short supply Cha’alt’s irradiated landscape has taken its toll. Three members of the group suffer from mutations that have left them permanently and horribly disfigured — one’s face now resembles a rat, another’s eyes have sprouted stalks and the third has grown a scorpion’s tail. The perils of Cha’alt are numerous, but the rumors of vast treasure hoards hidden within the legendary Black Pyramid drive your party forward — despite the knowledge that few, if any, have ever returned from the maddening journey within. Mutations be damned. Endless riches await.

The Tomb of Black Sand

The Tomb of Black Sand (5e/OSR)

As the heavy bronze doors open outward, a gust of cold air escapes the tomb with an icy howl. The delicate sound of swishing sand and faint, ghostly whispers can be heard inside the entryway’s dark hall. Within the chilling blackness ahead lie clues to the mystery of disappearing nearby townsfolk and of this vast structure that, inexplicably, has somehow “grown” from the very earth itself.
