Head in the CloudsD&D Insider Article
A Chaos Scar Adventure for Levels 7-9
by Matt Sernett

"Head in the Clouds" is a short Dungeons & Dragons adventure for characters of levels 7-9. It takes place in the Chaos Scar at any location you wish. Alternatively, it might start outside the wall and the characters might need to go inside to continue the adventure. The adventure begins when the adventurers notice something ominous in the sky, but instead of offering danger, the floating fortress begs for help. When it crashes, the characters have the opportunity to offer that aid when denizens of the Chaos Scar swarm the strange sky vessel.

An enormous stone head drifts through the air about 200 feet above you. As you watch, it sinks slightly lower, and you see that a fortified tower has been built upon its top like a crown. An elderly human man is leaning out of the head’s gaping mouth and waving to you. He seems to be shouting something, but it’s hard to hear him over the howling wind.

(For details on the Chaos Scar and its environs, read the Chaos Scar introduction and check out the map of the entire valley. Then check out and join the Chaos Scar group on the D&D Community pages.)
