This document offers a general guideline on scaling the adventure for each level. A noble family hides a recently discovered artifact high up in a well-defended tower.

If the legends are to be believed, the Canopic Chest of Lunacy contains the desiccated remains of the hag once known as Fitful Edith Bloodbite. As the story goes, Edith was murdered in a moment of rage by her sister, Agnes, for reasons forgotten. Agnes was immediately regretful of the murder, however, and could not bear to bury her sister in some loose earth to be eaten by worms. Instead, she preserved Edith's corpse and locked it in an iron chest that she would keep within her home for years to come. Many years later, Agnes herself was slain by adventurers, who collected the chest but were horrified of its contents, even more so when they became aware of the strange happenings that would occur while the chest was in their possession. The chest since changed hands on a handful of other occasions before finally becoming lost in a bog after merchants threw it overboard from their wagon. None could bear the visions they were afflicted with and the phenomena they suffered when the chest was near. The chest remained submerged in the bog for hundreds of years before it was recently unearthed by a member of house Harringwen.
