    Pre-battle flavour text:

    It's that time of the year again. Time for the 'Annual Batford-Stafford Reconciliatory Lunch & Funtimes'. It's the worst time of the year, it brings back memories of all the times your cousin Batford won the annual cake baking contest. Those contests were clearly rigged!

    This year the lunch is hosted in your estate, and you intend to turn the tables. You have asked one of your chefs to prepare a special cake, a cake to end all cakes. You arrive at the lunch site and have only four words for your cousin and his lackeys before your plan is set in motion.

    "Let them eat cake!"

    Post-battle flavour text:

    Groans fill the lunchsite, this will be a Reconciliatory Lunch not soon forgotten! You shove away your miserable cousin, order the servants to start cleaning and eat a little bit of leftover cake. You're not sure which is sweeter, the cake or the taste of victory.

    Ominifis Dran: Jim, Binwin, Do you remember that one faithful day?
    Jim Darkmagic: Which one? The one where our prices were crashing and you decided to hire a professional assassin?
    Binwin Bronzebottom: Was it that one where i ALMOST...and i mean almost got buried with my gold?
    Ominifis Dran: Yeah. That day. I still have no clue how he snook up and triggered our traps, that broke the wall,
    with an ambush waiting outside just to come in un-invited. They even had time to decorate the office with these dumb Cryppts Co. posters.
    Jim Darkmagic: Ha, simple. He became invisible! I only remember going to take a cake slice, I heard a loud thump and just hid somewhere.
    Ominifis Dran: Yeah, Whilst i was telling Binwin to stay sharp, I went to call for help. And how can a newly-hired assassin get to use our invisibility technology?
    Jim Darkmagic: He became even more invisible! ...Wha-...WHERE IS MY SPELLBOOK OH GOD NO!!! NOW WE HAVE A PROFESSIONAL THIEF TO GRAB OUR POCKETS TOO!!!
    Ominifis Dran: Here here, don't panic. You'll take all the lawsuits. Also, lock the safe. I want all my money to be in a safe place.
    Binwin Bronzebottom: Due to you I almost died. Thanks a lot for making me remember this day. I'm having flashbacks already.

    Ominifis Dran: So where did she even come from?
    Jim Darkmagic: Who? Marie France? My virtual reality game somehow came to life?! It can't be!
    Ominifis Dran: SO YOU PLAY GAMES ALL DAY WHILE WE WORK HARD?!
    Jim Darkmagic: Uhhh...I suddenly feel i have to go the toilet.
    Ominifis Dran: Go on. Before you go, there's no toilet pa- And he's gone...i wish him a clean sitting.
    Binwin Bronzebottom: So, do you wonder where i was taken by that kind assassin?
    Ominifis Dran: Kind Assassins? Where? Didn't you almost die that day?
    Binwin Bronzebottom: I wish i did, but i was taken to a local pub instead. There were many prettier and kinder people than you, Omin.
    Ominifis Dran: Enough. Let's don't remind ourselves of that day. It was horrible for all of us and we should be grateful we have decent security around the office.
    Now let's pretend i did not even try to remind you of that day. Back to work.

    A few things to note: Module uses the AI2 soundtrack, who doesn't love elevator music whilst there's a slaughter going on? There's also two references. Both to Binwin's death quotes. Have fun finding out which they are. The before and after texts contain hints and the map itself has a big clue.

    Capture the Tomb

    Adventure:

    Ever wondered what immortal liches do when they're bored? Like, really bored? Why, they play games, of course! Sleeping in some ancient tomb for millennia is nice and everything, but you need a little exercise and entertainment from time to time.

    And thus two old lich buddies have invented a game called "Capture the Tomb". The goal is to teleport the "pieces" over to your opponent's tomb and, well, capture it. At the end of each round, if you have more pieces in your opponent's tomb than they have in yours, you receive a victory point. First lich to get to five points wins! What's the prize, you ask? You get to brag about your glorious victory for another thousand years! Honestly, what more do you need?

    Oh, the pieces have a terrible attitude, by the way. They keep shuffling around and punching each other as well as their masters. Don't worry - you are an immortal lich after all, and you do have a few spare pieces if things get messy. Just focus on the game!

    Aftermath:

    Another victory for the red team! Ah, your opponent will be feeling the salt of their defeat for centuries to come. But now it's time for both of you to take another short nap.

    *yawn*

    Battle Text:
    Pre-Battle:

    Lorzil the Wise, and her two elven companions were returning to their secret hideout in Woodhurst when they saw their perfectly camouflaged entrance melted away. Both enraged and astonished, they hurry inside to see if the intruder is still in. Their main hall was nearly destroyed. Rubble everywhere. What shocked them more was that the intruders were the fabled Astral Guardians! But they seemed to be moving in a forced manner, as if someone was controlling them externally. Low voices were heard at the other end of the hall. Three geomancers, previously concealed by the stone pillars now emerge in sight. They too seem to be in controlled by an external force. They chant through restrained mouths, altering reality and destroying the room while they speak. With a heavy heart, for their foes are not evil, Lorzil and her companions face them, to put them down.

    Post-Battle:

    The Guardians and Geomancers seemed to be deaf to reasoning, leaving the trio no choice but to slay them. Each time one was slain a dark shadow passed over them for a second before flitting out of room. Lorzil was sure that she heard a weak ‘Thank you’ before one of the geomancers died. Were they controlled by some spirit? Alas, that was for later to find out. Right now they had a pressing matter to attend. The trio starts to clean the room and pick up any intact objects remaining.

    You've finally done it; you've found the Lost Temple of Sdrawkcab Klaw! But you must hurry, the temple entryway is under a magical spell, and only appears once a year on the day of Klaw's death. You must gain entrance to the temple before sundown or wait another entire year to have a chance at finding Klaw's hidden treasure vault. The sun is already starting to sink toward the horizon, and there are so many temple steps to climb! Can you make it in time?

    Text to display after:
    That was close! You just gained entrance before the sun set, concealing the temple for another year. Now go find that treasure vault!

    Title: Grubworm's Gambit
    Account: chebert

    Prologue text:
    It's been many years since the mutants invaded Cardhuntria, terrifying the local inhabitants. Unafraid, a small band of heroes fought tirelessly until every last mutant was worm food... and how the worms have fed! Writhing grubs have infested the long-abandoned space vessel, converting it into a thriving hydroponics plant. Unfortunately, the local flora has been exposed to the plant's radioactive runoff, and three oak bombardiers are thirsty for more!

    The grubworm on duty gauges the speed of the intruders from the safety of the control room. "If they reach the water reserves before I seal the door they will drain the plant dry," it thinks to itself. "I can reach the door in two moves- surely the security robots will stop them before they cross the irrigation room."

    "After all, how fast can trees possibly move?"

    Epilogue text:
    The trees burst through the door and attack the water reserves with violent ferocity. The grubworm panics as every drop of irradiated water is siphoned through their oaken roots. "So much for my promotion," it laments.

    Pre-Battle description:
    The home of the war monkeys is unusually busy today. It seems that a group of burning fiends are moving into a nearby cave. Meanwhile, across the creek, a lizardman netter scouts the area. The war monkeys agree: It’s time to show these intruders who truly owns this place!

    (Burning Fiends respawn every turn. Kill the Phylactery and the Lizardman Netter to win.)

    Post-Battle description:
    In the face of such resistance, the remaining fiends beat a hasty retreat. You are still clutching some of their trinkets.

    ---------------
    • The phylactery has armor that gives it immunity to fire.
    • None of the war monkeys’ attacks have long enough range to hit the lizardman.

    Note that the lose condition is both war monkeys defeated. The fiends respawn every round and do not give victory points, but the
    noMinionKillPoints tag also makes the war monkeys not give victory points. That means the lose condition still works, but the stars don't appear for Gary.

    Here I am, a mercenary rotting in prison together with others of the same class, but, how did I come to stop here? I'll tell you, it all started when we were planning a robbery of a cart carrying gold into the city, it was to have been a simple robbery, but what we did not know was that everything was just a plan of an infiltration between us, To end up with mercenaries like me, we fall into the trap like ducklings, geomancer attack us and we are without reaction, I do not remember very well what happened later, because I was erased, and when I woke up I was here in that damn prison where they will already be ..... I have lost count, perhaps one of my companions knew if I had not been dead, everyone was taken one by one, and from what I hear from the guards I am next, the next morning they will take me to an arena which I found tin, Why not kill me as they did with my comrades? The answer to that question was revealed the moment I asked myself the question, apparently the king and the prince were in the arena and wanted a 'fun' and who would that 'fun' be? That same, 'me', gave me a chance to get out of that living hole, although the odds were not in my favor, I would have win in Prince's favorite game called 'The Last Chance' In a time limit, I had no choice but to Accept.

    they said that his power was so great that he allowed him to cast spirits to fight at his side in his battles, legend says he was To meet the monstrous Tvericus,
    to end his reign of ground, no one ever heard of him again, until our hero heard rumors circulating in the village of Pharros,
    who said that Grand Paladin Pharros was taken prisoner of Tvericus, Confident hero went to the castle of Tvericus.
    There he finds Paladin Pharros in a cell where he asks for the help of the confident warrior, he says that he did not have the strength to defeat Tvericus,
    but with his last forces he will conjure 2 spirits to help you, and try to heal you, just like that We can end the Tvericus reign of terror.

    "In honor of the legendary Pharros the proud warrior"
    Not knowing what had just happened, our hero continues his journey to become what would later save the world.

    The Vial of Ralos

    Adventure:

    Your search for the Vial of Ralos, presumably an ancient artifact of great power, has led you to the eerie halls of Black Plume Mountain. Following your map, you have reached a doorway to a large dark chamber. An inscription next to the door reads: "THE VIAL OF RALOS."

    Finding this a little too convenient, you take a few wary steps inside until you hear a click from under your foot! The door slams shut behind you as rivers of liquid flame illuminate the room, accompanied by ominous hissing and flapping of scaled wings from above. Most notable, however, is the booming voice that is coming from an odd-looking statue: "Have you come to play the game with me? Jolly good! Mind the jaws, though."

    Screenshot:

    Aftermath:

    As the last creature falls, the door opens once more. Even though you barely escaped with your life, you have managed to snatch a couple of trinkets from the piles of treasure like a true die-hard adventurer. Struggling to catch your breath, you cast another glance at the inscription.

    It reads: "THE FLOOR IS LAVA."
