There’s something rotten in the town of Advent

Advent - the last civilised place in The Realm before one crosses into the barbarian lands of The Long Riding.  Many years ago this was a lawless place of warring clans and murderous bandits. Advent has grown since then, but little has changed. It still attracts the dregs, the runaways, the refugees, the desperate, the unforgiven.

Perhaps this is why Zarand and his gang of robbers thought Advent was a good place to lie-low. To plan the next job. To find the fabled treasure hoard of the barbarian chief, Hessaret.

But naturally, nothing is ever so simple.

This might just be Zarand’s last job...

Hessaret’s Treasure is a Mythras scenario set in The Realm, the lands described in Book of Quests.  It provides a side chapter for that campaign or, as is intended, a scenario in its own right. While useful, Book of Quests is not essential to play, and this scenario can be easily slotted into many fantasy campaign settings.

The adventure is suitable for Games Masters and Players new to Mythras and offers 2-3 sessions of play. Recommended for 3-6 characters but easily scaled to fewer or more.

So I take it this is aimed at a more high fantasy crowd rather than the regular mythical/sand and sandals, d100 ones?

Author here. I can see why you might get that impression, from the teaser, but it's not what I would call "High Fantasy". It's grittier than that, and certainly not high-magic, anyhow. In terms of genre flavor, it may be more like a "spaghetti western" than anything else. Think "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly", with swords instead of guns. Maybe it has a little film noir flair, too.

Whether it's more like High Fantasy than the other d100 adventures you've played, I leave up to you.

I didn't have any particular crowd in mind when I wrote it. It just turned out the way it turned out. :-)

Thank you. Mind you; High Fantasy wasn't meant as belittlement (certain fans of d100 seem to take offense)

Personally I think d100 can do a lot more than the 'sand and sandals' genre that it seems to be stuck to..

In any case, I own 'A Gift From Shamash' to cover Scifi and I am looking for a Fantasy * adventure to try with Mythras Imperative. Could this story work like that?

Once again thank you for your time.

*= preferably closer to standard High Fantasy, so that I can ease my players in

Sorry, just saw this...

No offense taken. :-)

I think the biggest thing you might miss when using Mythras Imperative instead of full Mythras is the magic systems. Since Hessaret's Treasure is low-magic, I think it would work pretty well with MI.

For other low-magic Mythras scenarios, you might also want to check out Old Bones Pubishing. :-D

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
