The Party that Split originally debuted at U-Con on November 2021 (http://www.ucon-gaming.org/) The story continues where The Goat Mayor and Straw Bears leave
off, a year later. Many of the things that adventurers in past adventurers have done in previous adventures have an affect on this adventure, and the events
in this will affect adventures in the future.
The village of Basht is a little Grimm's Fairy Tale village that was used for several CCCs and DungeonCrafts U-Con. I hope that your players enjoy the whimsy and dark undercurrents as much as mine have, and I would love it if you share your experiences in Basht with me!
I've included VTT-friendly maps and handouts in separate files to help with running your games virtually because we can't let a simple thing like physical distance prevent us from sharing our stories.
I also have a printer friendly version included for those that prefer their works to be printed on the flesh of dead trees.
Please see other adventures written for U-Con:
The Goat Mayor (by me, Daniel Chapman) is the first introduction to Basht and it's peculiar traditions
The Straw Bears (by me, Daniel Chapman) takes place just a few tendays later, describing the strange annual tradition of the procession of Straw Bears
Blood and Fog (by Alan Patrick) was the first CCC written for U-Con and the first mention of the Blood Lord.
Rescue Down Under (by Alex Lown) continues the story of Basht and revisits the friendly tinkerer Yul Khahan.
The story will continue in Have You No Heart?
