"Danger lurks at every corner of the small coastal city of Los Farport. The locals insist people are being abducted in the night and taken into into the bowels of the rumored “Undercity Dungeon” below. A lone survivor managed to escape and give some information before dying in your arms: “Secret door… Tavern of the Wiley Wench… Ugh!”
" You and your brave team of adventurers have decided to investigate these rumors, plunder the dungeon and destroy the dreaded “Villains of the Undercity!”…right after you loot his still warm body, of course."
This blog post is going to pick right back up from here on the blog.
Dark Wizard Games's Maxium Mayhem Dungeons#3 Villians of the Undercity By Mark Taomino doesn't seem like the kinda of module that could have life as a Sword & Sorcery campaign. While this might on the surface be true in actuality & practice it's far from the truth. Los Farport has been a silver of 'Old Earth that has survived the Great Disaster & been flung deep into space just off the South of Hyperborea's deep aural North Winds. Los Farport & it's environs maintain a late Roman Empire style level of technology with pockets of early elecricity & other odd bits of seemingly modern technologies. The truth is that these are one off inventions created by the odd inventor or dark wizard. Warmed by the burning corpse of a dead fire god Los Farport is almost but not quite your seemingly 'normal' world's most popular fantasy rpg table top world. In our version of Villians of the Undercity the 'fantasy' races are actually the former troops of Ragnorok left behind.
The Elves are from the realm of the Light Elves, the descendants from the dökkálfar and ljósálfar respectively. The dökkálfar includes the Norse Dwarves who are from the same realm as the svartálfar ('black elves'). Los Farport is also the home of numerous human variant races & others.
This is a world that one upon a time before the Green Death traded with Hyperborea. That's ancient history now. Or is it?! There are various time & space gates that still exist deep in Underborea. The PC's might just find themselves stuck on a one way trip to Hyperborea through a long thought abandoned dungeon.
The plot of Maxium Mayhem Dungeons#3 Villians of the Undercity By Mark Taomino remains the same. However the vile villian really is actually working for the cult of Elemental Evil. And he's responsible for turning the heat up on events within the Hyperborea rpg version of T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil.
