A Construct-Themed One-Shot Adventure
Compatible with Most Fantasy RPG systems
Recommended for 4-6 player characters of levels 12 to 16 

A sage has sought your help in solving a 2,000 year old mystery
Was the ancient goddess Evalyn MacGuiness really divine?
Or was she a traveller from another planet who crashed landed here?
The answers lie in her cult shrine. Will you enter it and learn the truth?

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

This is a construct-themed one-shot adventure designed for an evening’s worth of gaming adventure! This high level adventure is intended for 4-6 seasoned players of levels 12 to 16. In this scenario your players will be exploring an ancient, recently opened cult shrine which may hold the key to unlocking the power of travel among the stars!

SYNOPSIS: In this adventure your players will be hired by a half-elven woman named Perri Onwe, who employs the party to investigate a 2,000 year old cult shrine of the goddess Evalyn MacGuiness. This is no simple archaic holy place, however; it is in fact something far more interesting. For Perri Onwe believes that Evalyn MacGuiness was no goddess at all, but that she was actually a traveller from another realm who came to the land of Terrans aboard an advanced ship that could traverse the æther between the spheres! The sage’s research has convinced her there is a tome buried somewhere in The Dark Chanterie that will provide answers to her questions about the mysteries of travel through the heavens and the possibility of life beyond the stars! It is no easy matter to get these answers, however, for Perri knows it to be protected by fell automatons of immense power and she has discovered the shrine is protected by arcane magic beyond her ken Thus she has sought out the mightiest of adventurers to aid her in this quest.

Dare you enter the Dark Chanterie?

This supplement contains a completely original one-shot adventure, ready for immediate use with very little preparation by the GM or the players! This book contains great Old School art and maps, with detailed encounters for each area. An Old School hex map of adventure’s locale in Dùn Bhriste, is also included, with information on geography, local settlements, and showing areas for further exploration. The module introduces new magic items for use in your campaign, including the star helm, a device that is used in inter-spherical travel (e.g. space travel). Details on both the creation of these devices and travel within the heavens, by your players, is forthcoming from Starry Knight Press in an inter-spherical travel supplement to be released in 2021. Lastly, as this adventure requires a fairly powerful party of 12th to 16th level adventurers, a fully prepared group of pre-generated player characters is included for use by players. In addition, another set of two pre-generated non-player characters (NPCs) is included to assist the party in meeting the challenges of this adventure: Perri Onwe (FTR 7/MU 8) and her companion Cormac Jennings (CL12). 

This book features 26 pages of thrilling Old School gaming fun, and it is sure to be a hit with discerning GMs and players alike! The module can be completed in a single 3 to 4 hour sessions, or if combined with some of our 70 plus other published modules, it can be part of a longer story-arc, spanning numerous gaming sessions!

PLUS you also get a free copy of my 2021 Starry Knight Press Catalog, which has information on all of my modules and supplements, as well as maps of the known portions of my campaign world of Terrans, and bonus content (new monsters and magic items for OSR/5E) from my published books!

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.
