CCC-REAP-01 Red War: Lost Ashes of a Wayward Gnome


A priestess has traveled far from home to find herself in the middle of the RED WAR. Join her on a surreal, madcap journey through a dangerous warzone to recover the ashes of the gnome responsible for this conflict. Can anything good come out of this fool’s errand?

You will love this four-hour adventure for 5th-10th level characters, set in Mulmaster during the Red War. "Lost Ashes of a Wayward Gnome" is part of the Red War series of CCC adventures.

Really good mod, fun for everyone and super easy to follow. The curse is a bit hard to track in combat but any one with experience will nail it.

If the characters were also present in DDEP0001 are the area effects on magic still present given that there were ended at the epic? How did you expect this part of the mod to be played?

Good question! While writing CCC-REAP-01, I talked with AL Admin Alan Patrick about this issue. It's a little wibbly-wobbly-timey-whimey (i.e., "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective point of view, it is more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly-timey-whimey . . . stuff.") So yes, the area effects on magic—Szass Tam's Necrotic Kiss and the Cancerous Magic—are still very present, just as the war itself is still going on. There's a rather large sidebar on page 4 that explains it all. At the same time, you are the DM. You're in charge. When I run this game, I tend to be very forgiving in my application of these effects. I assume the characters are aware of what's going on, and I gently remind them to keep their distance from each other. The wild surges from Cancerous Magic are just fun. But if we forget to roll on the table here and there, I shrug my shoulders and move on.

If you have a player who insists there's NO WAY they could be in this adventure, having also participated in the Red War epic (there are a few other Red War CCC's out there as well), you can always say that the crazy rifts in the Weave created some sort of inexplicable temporal pocket. Ahhhh!!!! Convenient plot twist!!!

I don't know. That's what I would do.

Heya, Mr. H! One of the NPCs in your adventure really resonated with me when a local DM ran this mod for me. Since I am in the process of writing my own CCC, may I politely request for written permission from you to use her as a recurring NPC in my own series? It'll really tie in with her story and that'd be really neat.

If not, it's ok. I can create another character with a different name based on her. I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask, regardless. Thanks either way. :)

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
