Start the character at level 1 they will be level 5 by the end. 


Rumors began appearing once again, surrounding the old destroyed Temple on Witch Mountain. Some say dark things have begun to crawl from its murky depths once again. Following a map you obtained in a game of chance, you have found the ancient ruins of the temple, thought lost to the centuries. You prepare for your first foray into the ruins....


Background.... 

Witch Mountain has been surrounded by dark tales of ancient curses for centuries since the days anyone can remember. An enterprising Priest of Maraike strong in his convictions lead an expedition to Witch Mountain to cleanse it of its evil reputation. After numerous purifications and exorcisms he deemed it safe and established a Temple of Maraike at the base of Witch Mountain over the site of some ancient ruins. 


For years the Temple prospered, until the day, one by one the priests started going mad. Some say they heard a strange voice whispering in their ears, of a dark god. The voice corrupted them and distorted their worship of Maraike, turning their souls black as pitch. Evil beasts and men sprang from the Temple in large numbers pillaging the enslaving the lands beyond. The Lords of the area finally united under a single force and put the Temple and its inhabitants to the sword. The Temple was razed and all within killed. 


Over the centuries the location was thought lost... until a certain group of adventurers stumbled onto a long lost map.

Great job with this module, man! Can't wait to play Secret of the Black Flame!

Thanks NJ, glad you liked it, and Secret of the Black Flame gets even more interesting. 

Temple of Evil on Witch Mountain is actually a kind of Spin off of Temple of Elemental Evil. It was actually designed while looking at the module and basing the encounters on the 1st level of the Temple. It also pulls the theme and mood from there. 

Secret of the Black Flame is actually a kind of Spin off of Baltron's Beacon, and even references it in the Library area.

Yeah, both references were pretty clear. Evidently, time and space are convoluted on Solasta, and sometimes the entire plane overlaps with Greyhawk.

I reached the end of the crypt and got the "congratulations" message, but now my save got corrupted and I haven't actually seen if that exit concludes the module or teleports you to another area. Is there something after the crypt or does the module ends there? Because I will gladly restart from the beginning if I missed something.

Again, great job!

You mean the Vault in the Secret of the Black Flame?

Yeah that exit past the secret doors in the Cult's Shrine is the actual exit point of the module. Its the other direction from the Treasure Vault. So yup that's the end. Its the one that uses the Crypt Tileset

Once you hit the exit you can export your characters. 


The exit in Temple of Evil is just past the Altar through the hidden crawlspace in the Caverns Tileset. 


The next module is likely going to be Halls of the Ogre Lord, which is a spinoff of the Against the Giant's Series. Which will start at 7th level. 


And again, thank you for playing and enjoying them. And thanks for the compliments.

Once you hit the exit you can export your characters. 

Yes, I know, but sadly I stopped playing just before clicking on the exit and the save got corrupted.

Eh, that just means I will play it once more when your next module comes out.

Thank you so much for this module! It took me two days to clear on 'hardcore' (no saves) on my third attempt. I have a plan for the next expedition...

I just want to say I recently downloaded this module and am having a blast playing through it.  I am barely still in the first part of the first module but I would like to commend you on the work you've done.  I love that during combat there are plenty of places to hide.  It's obvious that you put a lot of work into the strategic aspect of the design.  

It definitely has a Temple of Elemental Evil *feel* to it. I can't wait to explore these dungeons further.

Great job.  Looking forward to future works from you.  Props!

Thank you Dalmir, 

I did indeed make every opportunity in that module for very stratigic combat. I hope you enjoy the rest.
