"Go to the sign of Marvel'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

Places of Mystery III - Sylvan Settings (1983)

From the back cover:

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?
