The Spell Eater
A short Dungeons & Dragons adventure for levels 8-12
Zander’s School of Magic is a small, unremarkable building on the outskirts of town. The green dragonborn Mage named Arek Zander is not a very powerful wizard, but his patient teachings have developed several generations of hedge mages who help their communities.
Unfortunately, the school is threatened by a mysterious force that has left one student in a coma and stolen magic from several others. Zander asks for your help. He describes waking up after a long rest feeling drained of magic. Several of his magic items have also lost their power.
Your investigations lead you to the school’s newest student, a young half-elf named Elandras. Elandras is actually a Yilarith in disguise. The strange, mouthless creature feeds on magic and will target any spellcaster in your party.
If you expose the yilarith and defend the school, Arek Zander gives you a Wyrding Crystal and a nonmagical gem worth 1,000 gp.
