Goblins of Io-Rach
Okay, so I wrote up a side adventure using the suggestion from the Book of Vile Darkness. I uploaded the Word document to ZansForCans's site, so look for it in the next day or so (when ZFC updates it). Here are the first few paragraphs. If you want me to post the whole thing here (it is long) please let me know. I do not have a digital map, but the descriptions are sufficient. The victims in the torture chamber should provide you with adequate motivation, though you can think of others (perhaps a lead on the alchemical book).

I ran this adventure in my last session (I will update my log with it, but wanted to provide this first for reference for those interested). It worked well, the players loved it.

Monte or Thrommel: if posting this violates anything (copyright or whatever), please let me and ZFC know and it will be deleted (and then delete this thread). I didn't have time to add in the d20 legal stuff (though I could do so eventually), though I don't know if Io-Rach is allowed for that.

Enjoy!


This side adventure to the Return to the Temple of elemental Evil was inspired by the Goblins of Io-Rach suggestion in the Book of Vile Darkness, by Monte Cook. That book is required for use with this side adventure. This is intended for 4 players of levels 6-7, though additional encounters are provided for 5-6 players or a longer session time. This adventure is intended to be run as a single session side adventure.

In the poor district of Verbobonc, there lies a clothing shop, simply titled “Clothes” in poor lettering (as if by a child). This shop is a legitimate front for the Goblins of Io-Rach. Io-Rach, roughly translated from goblin means “bloody eye lying on the ground”. This name was chosen by the leader, Kezzerug, after obtaining the alchemical manual from his masters of the Temple of All Consumption.

Once merely a stronger than normal goblin fighter in service to Naquent, Kezzerug was the beneficiary of a strange discovery. He was given the alchemical manual that describe the special poison of Io-Rach and how to use it to create malformed goblins. Kezzerug quickly embarked upon a mission to master the formula and to gain a tolerance to it so that he would not be affected. Over the next ten years, Kezzerug would grow in power and learn to create the poison. He gained power and was given the tasks of building a small army, in midst of one of the most powerful cities, Verbobonc. He gathered a few specialized cohorts, Fhist and Krkuk, and few cultists and chose his location. He then took the next five years to delve under the shop and build his workshop, torture chamber, and the impressive vats.

Well, it's not available for d20 license use, but I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think you're actually reproducing text, so talking about Io-Rach is no different that talking about the Crater Ridge Mines.

Re: Goblins of Io-Rach
Thanks for the response! I'm just trying to tie two great products together. I really liked the goblins of Io-Rach idea and needed a quick side adventure.

Anyway, It's now up on ZansForCans's site in the miscellaneous directory. If anyone decides to use it, I'd be realy happy hearing about it. I'll update my log with the session hopefully sometime this week.
