    [BIRTHRIGHT] Shadow World

    I'm going to be sending my PC's into the shadow world to retrieve a
    lost magical item. I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas of
    what to throw their way in terms of creatures. The characters are of middle
    levels so I need to find somethings more impressive than normal skeletons
    and zombies.

    [BIRTHRIGHT] Shadow World

    When I read Greatheart ( Birthright Novel ) undead orogs and undead
    humans came form the portal. They were lead by a lichlord. In the book the
    shadow world has many kingdoms of undead from the Battle At Mt Deismeer.
    When they died they went to the shadow world and saw it uninhabited exeptfor
    Halflings. So they lead lesser undead and made armies, castles and
    provinces.

    Why not add some adventure hooks and plots or creatures from
    Ravenloft in? I think it would fit perfectly well. Or make the place
    they go to something like the mayor battlefield in FR (battle of the
    Bones, if I'm correct). It was a former battlefield with no
    vegetation anymore, just grinded and broken bones and rusted weaponry
    all around nowadays. As you move in from the edge toward the center,
    things start to get tougher. It starts with zombies and skeletons,
    but soon those increase in numbers, hit dice, weaponry and others
    join the carnaval,like wights, spectres, an occasional shadow etc. It
    it rumored that in the center lives a powerful lich lord who controls
    the mob and has several lieutenants. Maybe you could even throw a
    speciality priest of Mellifleur in, always nice chaps for a healthy
    conversation.
    Good luck!

    Lets say the players go into the Shadow World in Anuire. Imagine them
    encountering evil twins of present regents. For example the Vampire Mage
    Caelidhe Doisiere. Or the Death Knight Prince Darien Avan.

    While I can't get too specific about our plans for the SW at this time, I can
    say using undead is certainly a good place to start. But consider the SW more
    than just a repository for Cerilia/Aebrynis's restless spirits. The Shadow
    World is a strange and unusual place, where things aren't always as they
    seem. Time and distance can be distorted, illusions and phantasms take on
    real forms, and quite "un-Cerilian" creatures exist there. The Shadow World,
    as we intend it at this time, will be a strange place where heroes of all
    experience levels will be kept guessing.

    In other words...surrealistic?
