KILLING THE GOLDEN TWINS

In this free adventure module for the Book of Exalted Darkness Kickstarter the players are wicked agents part of a plan hatched by Gespadrieux, a mad scientists lurking beneath the earth. Their sordid party of villainy will strike against not one but two of the Celestial Heroes’ descendants, cracking the impervious fortifications of the paladin Lellwyn Fethyrwal in a daring assassination in the very heart of the city of Legio before effecting a daring escape.

  • The city of Legio, a fully-mapped settlement filled with bustling factories and devout workers!
  • An exciting and despicable adventure in two acts: preparing for the foul deed and escaping capture afterward!
  • 7 holy NPCs to stand in the way of the evil adventuring party!
  • Inaequa Chariots and Inaequa Pistols, the first pieces of decopunk technology that will be included in the Book of Exalted Darkness!
  • Dark rewards for completing the quest including malevolent augmentations for every character class and four grafting feats depending on what each PC chooses as their prize!
  • New attributes: Sanctity and Sin, two facets central to the Book of Exalted Darkness through Sin points and the danger of the vilespawn template!
  • 2 nefarious class archetypes: fearmonger sorcerers and masquerading heretic rogues!
