Adventure Shorts #17: The Dead Grove

Where once were beautiful farms, there now was a vast tangle of thorns and weeds. Where once played children, there now were graves. Where once there were butterflies, there now were tiny flying creatures with sharp teeth and voracious magick.

What may occur next:
  • Deep in the overgrown wilderness, where once was a fairy tale kingdom, there is now a dark, stinking grove with evil, flesh eating sprites.
  • The sprites are twisted because of the poisonous silver ores under the wilderness. These ores may seem like a treasure to those who do not know.
  • Behind the grove, a true princess sleeps due to a curse. And she will only wake once a prince kisses her. Then again, she might be the human sized, flesh eating sprite queen.

Undead Sprites

In poisoned groves the undead sprites may be found, half a foot tall, buzzing and humming, flying and biting, casting malevolent cursed magick. Their teeth are razorsharp, their eyes glowing red, their smell of rotting flesh.

OSR: AC 5, HD 1/2, 1d3, 5 sprites together may cast curse, Move 180', Save: M1, #app 3d6
DD2: dex 4, armour class -1 due to size, flight/evade 4, bite/knife 2 (weapon class 0)
