Depths of MadnessD&D Insider Article
by Robert J. Schwalb

The Madness adventure arc continues this month with "Depths of Madness." The danger to Wellspring has not abated, and it's up to the characters to delve deep beneath the town's streets to uncover the truth of the Tear of Ioun. An adventure for 11th-level PCs.

A pall hangs over the frontier town of Wellspring, casting this once-vibrant place into corruption and death. Strange people stalk the streets and unexplained murders occur each night. Nagging fears that more horrors will spill forth from the Kadagast Mountains instill a pervasive paranoia within the townsfolk. Suspicious people watch their neighbors, and temple attendance has never been higher. Folk keep to themselves, hiding in their homes. They avoid darkened streets, lock their doors when night falls, and shutter their windows to close out the screams and shouts echoing in the dark. If the grim threats pressing the town are not stopped, the flame of Wellspring might very well flicker out.
