About the adventure

While excavating an ancient temple, Dwarven explorers Norbus and Dazlyn have run into a problem: some unexpected inhabitants have taken up residence in the temple, and the creatures aren't in the mood to share the space. The dwarves are desperate enough to continue their expedition that they will make a deal with you: clear out the temple, and they'll give you a pair of seeing stones. Plus, they'll split the difference with you on anything else you can find. But, if you finally agree to the bargain, will you discover that you have bitten off more than you can chew? Dwarven Excavation is a short D&D adventure for 1st to 3rd level characters. It is one of the modular encounters

How will character creation work

Characters should be created using the Player's Handbook, and should be between levels 1 and 3. Check with me if you want to use other official source material. No homebrew or unofficial source material is allowed. Please complete your character sheet on the server at least 24 hours in advance of the session, so I can check it before we begin. For new players or those who don't have time to prepare, three pregenerated characters will be available.
