You thought you knew what to expect.
Feasting. Folk dancing. Amateurs miming the local legend.
But when a hush descends, what passes through the gate is no costume.
From the town square you glimpse its back cresting above the rooftops. Around the corner strides a monster hewn of living stone. On the great raised dais it settles, and up goes a cheer from the crowd.
In silence, the stone beast watches on throughout the night.
King of the festival, complete with crown.
The Stone Beast's Crown is an investigative adventure for ARC: Doom Tabletop RPG. Someone has stolen King Gneiss' crown, and it's up to you find out who before the beast awakens and destroys the town of New Bast.
The 24-page booklet contains a setting, a scenario, and procedures for staging a fantasy investigation. For everything else, you'll need a copy of ARC and some familiarity with its rules. The map featured in the text was generated using Oleg Dolya's Medieval Fantasy City Generator.
The current version is an untested edition written for Random Adventure Jam. It's currently pay-what-you-want, with plans to release a paid edition once the game has gone through playtesting and revision. If you play the adventure in its current state, feedback is appreciated.
