A Penumbra d20 System adventure for 4th to 6th level characters.
We saw a light through the mists, and heard music. Three more steps, and it was there, right in front of us - a palace like nothing I had ever seen. We edged closer, peered in, and stood and stared...
We saw a stately procession circling the great hall, presenting themselves to the lords of the castle. We were transfixed by the dancers, and by the grim truth shared by all of them. Everyone in the hall was dead! They had sword wounds and axe cuts and burns. Some were unmarked, but their faces had the drawn look I once saw on a man who died of exhaustion during a forced march. At the high table, the king had the blackened face of a poisoned man. Even in their deaths, they were beautiful - even in their deaths, they danced.
...And a strange compulsion rose from the floor into our feet, and we stepped down into the hall, and we joined the pavane and danced toward the king.
A millenium ago, the kingdom of Dayvos fell in a single night to an act of magical treachery. Tonight, the echoes of that powerful spell have drawn you into its last hours. If you are quick-witted and light-footed, you can free the souls of the imprisoned dancers or even change history. If you fail, you will dance among the dead forever!
