Deep in the wooded wilderness, the village of Grimmsgate is an outpost town on a seldom-traveled trail, right at the edge of nowhere. The village’s half-ruined temple of Law, dilapidated inn, drunken blacksmith, exiled trader and a few fur-trappers are enough to keep the bloody-minded denizens of the dark forest at bay, but nobody really expects the village to still be there in another ten years. The woods have become too dangerous for the trappers who once caught animals for fur, and merchants no longer travel the poorly-maintained road.
What great evil and what fabulous treasures are to be found in these lands? A brave band of adventurers might make their fortunes here. Or perhaps they might never return…
Grimmsgate is an introductory adventure for the Swords & Wizardry (0E) game, playable with most early editions of that game we all know. The village is located in the Borderland Provinces of Frog God Games’ Lost Lands setting, but can be dropped into any campaign with no difficulty whatsoever.
