About the adventure

Once every decade, the tides of the Empyrean Ocean recede far enough to reveal the highest eaves of a mysterious undersea tower. Long ago this was an eldritch fastness of Sezrekan the Elder, the most wicked wizard ever to plaque the Known World, but now the tower is known simply as the final resting place of the fabled Black Pearl - an artifact rumored to bring doom upon all who dare to possess it, but whose value is worth the risk.
