Dungeons & Lairs #22: Haunted Castle

Need to set up a session and have little time? Drop this in for play at levels 1, 3, 5, or 8!

Haunted Castle is a Fifth Edition plug-in adventure for four characters with an average party level (APL) of 1, 3, 5, or 8. This module offers details for each level and makes adjustments accordingly. While hunting for a long-lost treasure hoard, the characters enter a wintery keep with a dark history.

Adventure Summary

The adventure should play out as follows:

  1. The characters meet Baron Leo Wilson and agree to help him recover his family's lost wealth.
  2. Entering the castle, the characters learn immediately that there's something strange about the castle. It doesn't take long for them to meet one of the castle's many ghosts.
  3. Eventually, the characters get through to one or more of the Merritt family ghosts. The ghosts explain that their uncle Ferim knows where the vault is located.
  4. The characters use speak with dead to communicate with Ferim's skull. Ferim reveals the location of the portal mirror and how to enter it.
  5. Once into the secret vault, the characters must convince Lord Brycen to end the curse. This can be done by handing Brycen the ghostly letter that they find in the dungeon.
