In the dead of the night, a ghastly fog shrouds the deserted streets. Doors are locked, windows shuttered, as a deathly silence haunts the shadows. Almost all of Lankhmar's citizens cower in their homes. Tonight the streets and alleys of Lankhmar belong to the ancient gods - this is the Night of Fear. Whose life will be lost this night - a lonely wench abandoned in the street? Perhaps a young noblewoman betrayed by her family? You can find out, as you venture into the dark and winding streets of Lankhmar. But beware, eyes are already watching you.

Plot Summary[edit]

The module contains three magazine-sized scenarios for the Lankhmar setting, the first of which is called "The Curse of Valinor".[1] In this scenario, the player characters become involved in intrigue among Lankhmar's nobles. The second scenario, "Return of the Rats", is a continuation of Swords of Lankhmar, in which Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser go missing and the PCs are recruited to find them.[1] The player characters are shrunk and sent into the Rat Kingdom of the Undercity to find Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. The third scenario, "One Night in Lankhmar", begins in a gambling den. The scenario pits the player characters against gamblers, assassins, and illusions

This 10th to 15th level adventure is designed for the LANKHMAR City of Adventure setting and the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. It cannot be played without the Lankhmar City of Adventure book or the AD&D rules published by TSR Inc.
