Blood is thicker than water, as they say. But what happens when people use ties of blood to exploit others?

You may run into this problem in Monte Cook's new miniadventure, Thicker Than Water. In this module suitable for four 12th-level characters, one PC discovers a distant relative seeking help to complete a prophecy. Of course, things are never that easy -- particularly if the PC doesn't want to help?

Adventure Preview

Migos Fehr is the son of Charad, a mysterious air elemental creature somehow related to the Prince of Evil Air Elementals, Yan-C-Bin. Charad descended upon the material world about a century ago and, in the guise of a suave and dashing human, produced offspring with a number of mortal women, then he did the same thing again 30 years ago. Migos and his siblings all retain the traits of their supernatural father. Migos seeks the remaining carriers of Charad's bloodline. While he has found those from Charad's more recent visit, he also seeks those who descended from his actions long ago. He believes that people of his bloodline have a destiny (he calls it a "holy destiny") and that they are generally superior to others.

Specifically, he wants to fulfill an obscure prophecy called the Presage of Forms. This prophecy, originally spoken by the seer Talla 900 years ago, states that when six examples of the perfection of form gather together, they can unlock something called the Power Universal and gain access to its limitless might.

As it happens, Migos is completely wrong in thinking that the prophecy refers to his brethren, and he's made other mistakes as well, which you will discover later in this adventure. But, of course, he does not know this. (He wouldn't accept the notion of his errors even if someone told him or offered him proof?he's that convinced.)

Character Hooks and Running the Adventure

This is an event-driven adventure, as opposed to a site-based one. Refer to the Dungeon Master's Guide, page 98, for a description of the difference. Basically, you can find here a number of events, all linked, to place in your campaign. You can space these events apart, with other encounters, events, or even whole adventures taking place between them. The amount of time between events depends mostly on the character hook used to get the PCs into the adventure and how much setup time you have...

There's a Chinese saying "Devils give you your relatives, thank all the gods that you can choose your friends" - will your party, in particular one member of it, feel that way after you have thrown this adventure at them? Interestingly [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
