Tomb

The Tomb is worth 300 EXP.

FINDING THE TOMB- The tomb can be located after 1 hour travel in the dire moors, or found outright with a survival check dc20.

The Tomb of King Aldear the First

NOTE- This Area is designed with level scaling encounters and low level characters who enter with high level characters are AT EXTREME RISK OF DEATH.

A massive vault door made of adamantium coated with a thin layer of brass can be found in a chamber beneath the massive statue of the fallen king. The door can be opened with a thieves tools check (dc 10+CPL) or with the use of a knock spell or similar magic. Attempting to smash the door down is impossible, but its mechanism can be forced open with a successful athletics dc10+cpl save) once opened the door remains open for 1d4+2 hours. (the door can be opened easily from the inside)

There is a %50 chance the door is trapped on any given attempt to open it. Perception check dc 5+cpl to determine if the door is trapped or not. A successful sleight of hand check dc6+cpl can be made to disarm the trap. Behind the door is a massive underground necropolis made up of winding stone corridors bored into the bead rock which lead to various chambers, dead ends, and pitfalls.

For each hour spent exploring the area, roll from the Tomb Chamber Table, the Tomb Treasure Table, and The Tomb Traps Table to see what you find. ( trap effects resolve at the beginning of combat before initiative starts)

Scaled encounters rewards

How to Determine Rewards –

REWARDS ARE ROLLED BY PARTY, NOT FOR EACH CHARACTER 

In order to determine which reward table to roll from, find the SUM OF ALL PLAYERS LEVELS . 

For instance if a group of adventurers level 1, 20 , and 6 the total sum of all levels is 27. 

Rewards are calculated with the following equation – 10d20xTPl x the number of people in the party.

Each character will also receive 500 EXPERIENCE POINTS for this encounter.

Parties which contain any two members who are more than 5 levels apart no longer receive rewards from ANY encounters. 

When Calculating TPL only the highest 6 character levels are counted. All additional party members do not count towards TPL. (They do still increase the difficulty of the encounter)
