Under the "Lighthouse"
· ☕ 7 min read
Here is a quick adventure that I threw together to introduce some players into my Homebrew OSE campaign, using one of Dyson’s creative commons maps. It fit nicely with an existing location on my island of Salmeaus location i.e. the abandoned “lighthouse” on the coast about a days journey west of the city of Falsmouth. That location was always just an abandoned tower, clearly of pre-flood architecture. Locals call it a lighthouse, though it’s original purpose has long been lost.

Mother, I know it has been a few weeks since I left Calencia with those strangers who visited in search of the amphora that drove Lindin mad. How are things back home? Is Inga still sticking her nose in everyone’s business under the pretext of oracle work? Have there been any other strangers in town?

His name is Chexi Gooch, he is the lone Cleric of Kraken from his hometown. He left seeking

And there it was, a stone tower jutting crookedly from a small sandbar. The captain swore under his breath and called for a full stop alongside, once again planning to put the adventurers in his care to use. He had a bad feeling about this, as the tower was new, and new things in the ocean were invariably bad news. This tower appeared to have once been part of a larger structure, snapped off and placed ungracefully upon the sandbar.

The ship was weird, there was no doubt about that. They had come across it two days into their seven day journey from the port of Falsmouth, to King’s Grasp Island. The spotter in the crows nest had spied the old frigate, listing aimlessly in the open ocean and called down to the captain. The captain decided that since he had two adventurers on board, he might as well put them to work, and pulled along side the hulk, and roused them from below deck.
