We are happy to announce a new, updated release of The Curse of Castle Stieglitz, a ready-to-play adventure for 4-6 questers of 10th-12th level.
Rumor has it that in his isolation, Baron Stieglitz has allowed himself to become corrupted by dark, sinister, undead forces. His greed led him down a path of self-ruin until he himself became a wight. Wretched and sinister, the villagers of Talook have begun to fear for their lives. He is so corrupted, he has not left his bed chamber in months. The allegiances of his men have splintered, and four rival factions have set up their own mini-baronies within his lands.
As the questers travel the road to Castle Stieglitz they encounter groups of men collecting tolls. These groups are from the different factions of the Baron’s splintered army. Once they reach the Talook they will encounter Anna, the most respectable of the Baron’s commanders, and a visiting clergyman who ask them to confront the Baron and help put things right. Within the castle they can either convince the Baron to atone and right his fief or they can extinguish his unlife and help establish a new ruler. Either way the questers must deal with the bands of freebooters now roaming the area. The leaders of the three bands must be convinced to work with the new ruler, or be eliminated. Only then can peace return to the lands of Northbay, the Great Marsh and the Cyrűk Mountains.

Just in time for Armistice / Veterans Day!
Come to MillenniumCon 15 in Round Rock this weekend for a fun time with historical minis and a slew of board games. We’ll be running the Avalon Hill classic History of the World from 9:30 until 3pm on Sunday. Come find us in the Bastrop Room. Mention this post and I’ll give you a coupon for a free PDF download of one of our adventures (your choice!) from RPGNow. Join the game, take a side, and go for the glory!
(from BoardGameGeek): History of the World is played in epochs, with every player handling a new empire during each; yes, some empires will be stronger than others, but a few clever mechanisms largely balance that out. At the end of each epoch, players score points for all their forces (from the current and previous empires) remaining on the board. The game runs from ancient times up through the mid-20th century.
Other dealers present include Reaper, BattleMart, Grindhouse Games, as well as Austin favorites Great Hall Games and Dragons Lair. As one of the only annual cons in the Austin area, I feel it’s important to support this one, even if they typically aren’t too keen on role playing games. I suppose it’s important to have the occasional con that focuses on history and little pewter men.
As it is every year, the con is being held at the Wingate Inn at 1209 North Interstate Highway 35, Round Rock, TX 78664.
See you there!
