There are those who hold that whatever evil you do eventually comes back to you, in either this life or the next. In this second adventure in the Team Bravo series, one of a psychopathic arsonist's past victims has come to exact vengeance. But the creature is fully as destructive as the criminal it seeks, if not more so. It's up to the heroes to stop them both before their flames can claim any more lives. Check out Eric Cagle's new miniadventure for the d20 Modern Roleplaying Game. This adventure is designed for 4th-level characters.
Preview the Adventure
An exceptionally talented arsonist named Winston Kleese has torched several buildings over the past few weeks as part of his contract with the local mob. But Kleese is also a psychopath with an evil nature, and he could not resist deliberately setting one fire so that it would trap a victim and burn him alive. This act of pure evil triggered a response from the Shadow, causing the victim's essence to return as a vengeful spirit called a charred one. Driven by its need for revenge, the charred one seeks to burn Kleese alive as punishment for the crime he committed.
Since that fateful night, the charred one has been drifting through town in pursuit of Kleese, its fiery touch leaving still more burning buildings in its wake. Arson investigators are baffled by this string of mysterious blazes. Meanwhile, Kleese's fear of the creature that pursues him has just about driven him over the edge. He has only one job left -- a chemical plant in the industrial district. If he can just complete it, he'll leave town for good. Then maybe the creature won't be able to find him again. . . .
