A short Dungeons & Dragons adventure for levels 8-12
The infamous Firegate Prison once held the realm’s most dangerous criminals. Perched at the edge of a volcanic crater at the top of Mt. Pelier, the prison was abandoned twenty years ago when the volcano became too active. After several years without an eruption, you are hired to investigate the prison and determine if it is safe to be used again.
Although the prison has little structural damage from the volcanic eruptions, it is now inhabited by a Fire Giant named Grez’tarek. He is attempting to open a portal to the elemental plane of fire with the help of several Magma Mephits. In the lowest level of Firegate Prison, there is a bubbling pool of lava. Grez’tarek is dropping large red gemstones into the pool.
If the fire giant drops five gemstones into the lava pool, a portal will open and a Salamander will emerge. If you defeat the giant, you can claim his treasure worth 1,000 gp and a Flying Flail. The large red gemstones are warm to the touch and are actually salamander eggs. Each egg is worth at least 250 gp.
