Adventure Shorts #18: Blood Sucker from a Mirror

A present arrives by mail, from Mede the Micromancer, a known trickster. When the heroes carefully open the package, it contains a shard of glass. A humming shard of glass, with an image in the reflection which is growing, and growing, and growing...

What may occur next:
  • The shard is from a mirror portal to another dimension. It now opens up to a space where blood sucking kolibris live in swarms. Fortunately, they come out one by one through the shard. But they come out fast.
  • The shard was packed in a lead lined box, which protects against the portal magick. It will stop the swarm coming out.
  • Not only the Stirges are on the other end of the mirror shard, but so is Mede, who fouled up one of his experiments. A letter accompanying the package explains how the heroes may rescue him. Only question is, how did he write the letter and send the shard in the mail?

As an experiment from the southern armies, the giant, two foot wingspan, blood sucking kolibris were first intended to take on the wolf spider threats. Unfortunately, the beasts soon evolved into a species that attacked easier prey too, like humans.
