Adventure: The Long Road North
The trip to the north will take 5 days. On the 3rd day, they will encounter a bandit camp about 1 mile off to the west, near the oceans edge. When they get closer, they will see where the foundation of a large building once stood, and the bandit camp is in the middle. The building is hard to see, its covered in foliage and overgrown tree's. There are 6 bandits standing around along with 8 horses. 2 of the bandits squeeze themselves in what appears to be a small hole in the ground. (there are already 2 more bandits on the inside). The PC's will notice 6 other groups farther off in the distance in which they appear to be scavenging the land. Each group has about 6-12 people.
One of the bandits will say that the PC's may overhear is.. "Can't believe we found it this close, she sure is going to be pleased with us!".. The other bandit says "Yea, I bet we get gold and women for this!".
(Build Map) The hole in the ground actually leads to a tomb of a long dead and buried heroine. The PC's need to use the rope to get down, its about 40 feet down. When they enter, the interior looks old and decayed. They enter into a large barren room that bares a 20 foot tall decayed statue of what appears to be a valkyrie holding a sword and the other hand is empty, but as if it should be clasping something. Behind the statue is a hallway. Down the hallway voices can be heard, they appear to be arguing.
Down the hall is a room which appears to be quite large with 6 giant pillars, several large cracks are in the walls. Through out the large room is 6 statues per wall, the statues are of women holding stone staves. In the middle of the room is another smaller stone statue of a woman on her knee's with her hands out. Laying across the statue's hands is a stone staff embroidered with blue gems (if kept worth 100 gold). The bandits are hunched over what appears to be a large stone pedestal in front of the statue. On the pedestal is a dusty white book (actually brilliant white if cleaned), which appears to be closed with a lock.
When the staff is placed in the statues hand, a brilliant blue-ish white light beams out from the stone staff. The room starts to shake, pieces of debri from the walls and ceiling fall (1D5 chance of someone being hit for 1D10 damage). The statue begins to ascend upward, until a coffin appears in it (the base is cylindar shape with a hollow square shape cut through it). If the PC's open the coffin (the book might tell the player to open it), they will see that its empty, except for:
