Sometimes we need lower level versions of a classic monster to help fit the theme you are going for. Take the mummy for example. It is a solid CR 5 monster, but what if you are delving into an Egyptian-style tomb at level 1, or you are using a mummy, but you want a few lower level monsters with it so it is not a solo encounter. Today, we have the mummified servants just for you. This monster was first presented in Deadly Delves: Quests of the Sands.

The last exclusive look that I wanted to get out last week, I did not have time to post. So I took a few moments over the weekend to prepare some of the maps from Deadly Delves: Quests of the Sands. These two beautiful maps are from the short adventures Wreck of the Golden Barque and the Bandit King’s Hideout. Each of these short adventures, or quests, are enough for one night’s adventure with little preparation needed for the GM. All of these are Egyptian themed but work well for an Arabian themed campaign. Click on the image to see larger versions of these maps.

O Living Who Are on Earth Who Pass by This Tomb Pour Four Me Some Water
What awaits the just and unjust when they walk beyond Death’s Curtain? What happens when the proper rules of building a tomb are not followed? How long will raiders and adventurers seek a treasure that is long gone or well-guarded? What are the consequences of forsaking one’s oath to her goddess? Inside these many tombs of unrest lie deadly traps and angry dead. But do the traps exist to keep raiders out or to keep the dead in? When you delve into the depths of these Quests of the Sands, will you return with tales of glorious adventure, forgotten treasures from ancient times, or a curse to haunt you for the rest of your days?
