Plot Summary[edit]

Castle Caldwell and Beyond is a module containing five miniscenarios. As the player characters follow the module, they will clear out a castle and its dungeons, rescue an abducted princess, escape from a prison, and recover a holy item for a church. The module contains five short adventures. The first two, The Clearing of Castle Caldwell and Dungeons of Terror, are designed as connected, successive adventures, while the remaining three are stand-alone scenarios. The Clearing of Castle Caldwell: A local merchant has recently purchased a small castle, but when he tried to move in, he discovered that it was already inhabited. The adventurers are hired to explore and clear out the castle. Dungeons of Terror: A strange trap door in the floor of Castle Caldwell leads into a mysterious dungeon in which the characters end up trapped. The only way out is to find the means for opening a secret door hidden within the dungeon. The Abduction of Princess Sylvia: Just before her marriage to the prince of a neighboring realm to settle the conflict between their countries, Princess Sylvia is kidnapped by the henchmen of a party who does not want peace to come. The adventurers are to infiltrate the hideout of the culprits and rescue the princess from her captors. The Great Escape: In this adventure, the player characters start as prisoners of an enemy army, locked in a cell in a behind-the-lines outpost. Their first priority is to escape the cell and recover their weapons, then clear the outpost of enemy forces. The Sanctuary of Elwyn the Ardent: A legendary holy artifact has been stolen, and all traces point to the mysterious Elwyn the Ardent. The players must enter Elwyn's fortress and fight their way through a number of traps and monsters, all under Elwyn's scornful watch and taunting words.
