Flame of a Dying God
A short adventure for Dungeons & Dragons
Orenthar the Wayfinder, god of navigators and cartographers, is dying. Compasses spin wildly, and even experienced travelers now easily get lost. The holy order of Orenthar recruits to party for a holy mission to save their dying god.
They must escort a young initiate named Brin to a monastery high atop Mount Kiyara. Brin carries a Sword of Sacred Flame, a holy weapon that the order says will stop the evil force that is attacking Orenthar.
During a perilous journey through the mountains, the party learns that Brin is meant to be sacrificed to give Orenthar new life. They must decide whether to go along with the young initiate’s accepted fate or to find a way to save both Orenthar and Brin.
Characters are rewarded with a Sword of Sacred Flame, or their preferred magic weapon is granted the ability to cast the Sacred Flame cantrip as a bonus action.
