ZETH-02 Six Striking Swords (CCC-HAL-02)


Unusual allies, unbridled chaos and an Underdark mystery await characters in this dark 4-hour adventure for 5th to 10th level characters.

A mysterious resident has taken over an abandoned castle along a perilous trade route.  Now, strange happenings have the traders spooked and there is concern about the economic fallout.  Adventurers are dispatched to make a deal with the paranoid and potentially unstable occupant.

This is the second adventure of the Swords Below the Moonsea saga.     

In addition to a chance to embrace the chaos and be blessed by the Dark Mother, purchasing this adventure includes:

  • Printable portrait cards with roleplaying tips for important NPCs
  • Gridded reference map for the main combat encounter
  • Preroll tables to help more easily resolve certain aspects of the adventure
  • Season 8 Item Unlock Handout - prints 9 to a page, one for every player!
  • A printing guide to help you print only what you need
  • A work-in-progress Guide to the Zethlentyn Protectorate: this optional reference document fills out the history and lore of the drow area visited during this adventure.

Important note: This adventure relies on several player handouts that may need to be used simultaneously.  Capability to print or otherwise share these with the players is required to run the adventure. 


About the Swords Below the Moonsea Saga

The saga consists of three adventures, of which this is the second.  The first adventure in the series is CCC-PHA-01 Six Summoned Swords which serves a stand-alone prelude. The series’ conclusion is Six Swords Unbound.   It is not required or expected that players would have played Six Summoned Swords, although doing so grants a measure of familiarity with some of the characters.   CCC-HAL-03 Six Swords Unbound takes place immediately following this adventure and serves as the series’ conclusion.  It’s recommended that players play it shortly after this one.

This adventure (along with the first part of the trilogy) does a great job of setting the scene of the numerous drow houses and their infighting, and provides an exciting heist for the players. The fact that the adventures in this trilogy all have inte [...]

This adventure takes place some time after the first one so if you are planning to run them immediately after each other you will need to adjust a few story-telling points but it won't affect the mechanics if it takes place weeks after the first [...]

I really enjoyed running this series. I would recommend making sure to read all three adventures before running any of them. Also, some of my players were not as fond of it because they needed more of a good versus evil. These mods are more realisti [...]

First time I've run a good Season 8 module in a while. Loved the story line, could have been a little better worded for descriptions of the areas of the House of Vith'tyl for when the infiltrator went inside, as it was harder to describe the area by ex [...]

Due to my generally poor attitude about season 8, I actually let these two mods slip by, without realizing they had been released. Just goes to show you that you should never toss the baby out with the bathwater. This mod is packed with [...]

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.
