Run a rescue mission for your players when half the party is away in this swampy horror story for two players.
Eighty years ago, the village of Tenellón was founded ten miles north of Uqamarte. Tenellón is surrounded on all sides by thick salt marshes with few trees. The only way into the hamlet of thirty-some inhabitants is via a narrow path that is known to flood over during the wet season. Like many of the towns and villages in the Lost Dragon pass, Tenellón owes taxes to Arruquetta. In exchange, it is awarded a single Cord, one of Arruquetta's not-so-secret police force, who keeps watch over the area. Tenellón hunters trade frogs, alligator pelts and birds with other local villages. Most Weysevainers who happen upon the quiet village consider the Tenellónians to be quaint, pleasant folks, who would never harm a single hair on another creature's head.
This side trek is designed for two to three 5th- to 7th-level characters and is optimized for two characters with an average party level (APL) of 5. It especially works well when half of your normal campaign group can't show up and there are two or three players who still want to play.
Chorus of Toads is a horror story that takes liberties with one or more absent players' characters. Before running the adventure, be sure to ask the players of the absent characters if you can "borrow" their characters for the adventure. Feel free to provide details described within the text. Unless the participating characters cause an absolute disaster, the absent characters should be fine by the end of this adventure.
