"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

CM7 The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life was released in 1986 and though a Companion level module is designed for elves and thus was written for 8th level characters. A DM might allow other races to be used but the content and theme is very elf centric and they would want to be careful. The story behind this module is a little more dramatic than some of the other adventures in this product line. It is one that I could see being made into a movie if anyone was so inclines. As a companion module it is a little above average, in my opinion, but as a story and a plot that could be adopted outside for other levels I think it works well above average.

From the back of the book:

"The Feadiel clan's Tree of Life is dying. As the bravest and strongest elves in the clan, you must undertake the challenge of the elders: seek out the source of the disease and destroy it.

If you fail, the Tree of Life will surely perish, and all your family with it. The quest is great and you may die on the journey, never to find the cause of the disease. The journey will take you to the deepest part of ancient Selinar, Elvenhome, to find the guarded grave of the first Treekeeper.

Delay no longer! The Tree of Life grows weaker, day by day..."
