At the Heart of Corruption


Bring a party of adventurers to a bustling city, where mysteries and dangers lurk around every turn. Just when you think you have the answers, a whole set of new questions arise.  No matter which leads you follow, you will find yourselves...

At the Heart of Corruption

A one-shot murder mystery adventure designed for three to six level 2 characters.


About this Adventure

Your party will visit Rosszellem, a medium-sized city in the Forgotten Realms, but one that could fit in any general setting.  Players will be introduced to the mystery and intrigue of a town experiencing strange, violent occurrences, even amidst the most prominent citizens.  Can your party solve the mysteries, save the innocent, and survive what they discover?

Content & Tone

Note, content includes reference to Murder, Demonic Possession, Cult Activity & Human Sacrifice. Though the story could be considered fantasy horror within a murder mystery, the grisly elements have been spared, and it leaves open the chance to theme your session as a campy, 'B-horror' adventure or a gruesome dark mystery, or anything in between, as suits your party.

This 14 page, full-color book includes

  • A full map of the primary setting and key locations

  • Numerous adventure hooks to begin the adventure or tie into an existing campaign

  • Dungeon Master's combat encounter notes for scaling difficulty

  • Stat blocks for included and original NPCs and Creatures

  • Original magical items to be collected

  • Multiple possible endings (Happy, Melancholy, Twist, Cliffhanger)

  • An additional text-only document for accessibility programs and friendly printing

Hello, I produce a podcast, The Quest Hub, that reviews and discusses TTRPG one-shots and supplements, and our next episode is going to feature this product! We're very excited to discuss it for the show and we take creator attribution seriously. So we intend to include a link to this page for our listeners to have access to the product to pick up if they're interested, we were just wondering if there was another site or any social media accounts you'd like us to to acknowledge or link so our listeners can find your stuff? Feel free to send me a message here, or on Twitter @QuestHubPod. Thanks!

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.
