Plot Summary[edit]

The Vortex of Madness and Other Planar Perils is a set of five adventures which are linked and set in the outer planes. The adventures were designed to be run separately from one another or run together, and are for high level adventurers.[1]

These adventures are structured so that encounters do not just involve monsters to fight, although statistics are provided for combat. The eponymous adventure "The Vortex of Madness" involves a powerful prisoner held in a magical prison on the plane of Limbo; this location provides a tie-in adventure to connect all of the other locations together.
