"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

The Comapnions - Places of Myster III: Sylvan Settings

The Companions released a line of products in the early 80s. I recall seeing these when they were released and dismissing htem for some reason. It was most likely because they were not being released by either TSR or Judges Guild and that they did not bear the words "Approved For Use With" on them. I wear glasses and my hindsight is still better than my corrected vision. I have found products released for the Islandia and the Places of Mystery line to better than average in relation to some of the other products released by others during the period. They are also much scarcer in some cases and can get pricey if you aren't luky enough to find them at HPB.

Adventure here

The Viking Burial Longship
...Eerie, bobbing lights give dim illumination through the fog. All is suddenly still as a crow's warning cry, loud enough to awake the dead, echoes in the darkness. As though in response, aphosphorescent globe moves from behind a tree and casts upon a wall of fog a terrifying shadow - the head of a dragon, raised high, jaws agape, its gaze fixed on the path...

The Sacrificial Oaks
...The seven stumps, each as large as the thirteen trees that ring them, have been stripped of bark to reveal the twisted grain and intricate root structure. The tops are a uniform, dark color. They are very smooth, as though red brown oil. ...or some other substance... had anointed them to protect against the assault of the elements...

The Carrion Crow
...The trees, covered with deep green fungus, drip wet moss in a 15-foot-long strands. The ground flattens as it gives way to water: a yellow-brown blanket covers the marsh, No sound shatters the solemn... oppressive... silence...

...What does your party do?

What does our party do?
