The Tower of Horesk is an ancient edifice built upon the edge of the Grausumlands. Its dark stones sit upon an island-anchorage in the midst of a deep morass of bogs, saw grass, and gray, stagnant water. The tower sits like an obelisk, rising from the fog and waters.

Adventure’s road brings those stout of heart to the Tower’s iron bound gate. Whether brought here by the trail of the Vessel of Souls or by pure happenstance, the Tower, perched upon the edge of no-where, beckons, promising wealth and glory. But this is no abandoned dungeon. Fire-light spills from the windows that adorn its stark stones, and noise from inside carries over the still morass. Here is wealth and plunder, but danger as well and those who would pry open its doors must approach with some caution for inside lies ancient powers who reside upon the material planes to feed upon the weak and innocent.

Whether pursuing the Vessel of Souls as discovered in A8 The Forsaken Mountain, or coming upon the Tower through a regular adventure, A9 The Helm of Night offers characters plenty of adventure as they set out to explore, not an abandoned dungeon, but a tower filled with creatures most foul.

The Helm of Night is an adventure designed for 3-5 characters of 9th-11th level. It is designed for a single night’s play or at longest over several sessions. It is fully compatible with any ongoing campaign game or played as part of the A series adventure modules. The Helm of Night is primarily an indoor adventure.

"Single night's play" sounds good to me. I love the A series, but I am afraid I'll be in my nineties by the time I get my players through it :).

LOL, I'm hoping I'll be a little younger then that by the time it is all out and ready to be run. By my calculations, at our current pace, my group will finish Castle Whiterock in the summer of 2013. [They are about to enter the immense cavern which I went crazy expanding :)] SO the Trolls are on notice to have the A series wrapped up by then, thank you very much.

It is somewhat easy to write a single night's adventure... "walk into the room; die." Gary did it all the time. "Open the chest; die. Touch the skull; die. Attempt to find a secret door... die."

Is this one of those? :)

No, no, no, Serl...you missed a step:

"Step into the room; roll a die, then you die..."

Uh oh. Stephen still didn't answer the question. You're borrowing from the Gary handbook, aren't you? Ah, glad I met him at GenCon 07. Still yet, TrollCon(in Wisconsin)was always out of reach. Missed those oft talked about Gary porch games. I digress.
