The Boar-Riding warriors known as Tusk Riders are infamous throughout Dragon Pass and beyond. Travelling secretly by hidden forest paths they emerge to raid and despoil. But the Colymars have managed what some thought impossible: they’ve captured a Tusk Rider alive, and he’s cooperating with his captors. Now the Tusk Rider has a problem, his stay among the Colymars has weakened the magic that keeps his giant boar under control. The only solution: a blood ritual, and he knows of a temple that traffics in that magic. Under the orders of Colymar Queen Leika you will join forces with Penjurlhi and escort him through no-man’s land to the Skull Ruin.
This adventure will give the party the chance to learn Tusk Rider secrets, explore the ancient ruin, earn wealth, capture unique artifacts, perform diplomacy, and battle. Depending on choices the adventurers make they might find themselves defending Skull Ruin from attack or mounting a rescue mission with the war party of a Troll Prince.
