The folk of Oddvine’s Mill have long kept the spirit of the wood alive but with only eight hours of the mystical water that sustains the spirit remaining, they are out of time.

Can our heroes battle their way through the ruthless mercenaries of the Merchant’s Guild and save the Oddvine or will they allow the spirit and its people to perish?

Jailbreak! A Monsters of Rock Interlude

Your characters are thrown in jail and need to escape but they must do so without any of their armour or items, and in an environment where magic is closely guarded and every spell will need actual components to perform. Make your players read spell descriptions closely! Can they beg, borrow, deal, and steal the things they need to escape? Can they perform verbal and somatic components under the watchful gaze of Warden Spinel and his eagle-eyed guards? Can they survive the attention of Gewalt Drang and the Bullyboy?

  • More than 10 prison locations to manipulate and plot escape in
  • Homebrew rules for tunneling, prison routines, work duties, solitary confinement, magic, visiting days, cell searches, leisure time, smuggling, crafting, First day in jail (spoiler: not good) and even snitching!
  • NPCs to bully and harass ‘fresh meat’ (i.e, your players) including Rubrum August- the gnome who knows how to get things
  • Homebrew stat blocks for the Warden, Guard captain, two faction leaders and the Bullyboy!
  • List of all spell components and where to find them in Fullshank
  • Added Death Row rules to make your escapes time-sensitive!
  • Random tables for guard demeanour, prisoner reaction, deals/favours and solitary confinement, first day encounters and overheard rumours
  • Battle map of Fullshank prison

This version also includes all the stretch goals unlocked during the original campaign:

  • 1 New NPC- the prison counselor—can you convince him you’re sorry enough to earn early release?
  • 2 New factions to add to your Prison ecosystem
  • 2 New buildings- The temple- maybe prayer can save you! (spoiler: it can’t) and band practice room- maybe you can sing for your freedom like Leadbelly! (spoiler: you can’t)
  • 1 totally new adventure hook- Fighting in the Moonlight! The Guard Captain approaches you- he needs new fighters for his underground fight club! Can you survive 3 bouts and earn your freedom? (spoiler: maybe!)

Break out!
