Mice in the Pumpkin Patch is a Fifth Edition side quest designed for three to five 1st-level characters. This adventure takes place in the small hamlet of Crullfield in north Omeria, but can be placed in any campaign setting that has traditional fantasy tropes.
The farming village of Crullfield is an unremarkable stop on the path between the Rasgax Highlands and the Fairknot Region, bordering the edge of one of its many forests. Being in such close proximity to the forest, tall tales of magic and monsters have weaved their way into the local lore. Usually, such stories are mere fodder for the traveling adventurer’s coinpurse--but as they say, there exists a kernel of truth in every fantasy. A common theme in Crullfield’s legends is that of mischievous faeries, also called pixies or sprites, that play tricks upon the people and cause general mayhem.
Five years ago, a peddler by the name of Rismald closed up shop one evening and, as he’d done many a clear night, decided to take a stroll through the woods. Not long after he’d crossed the threshold of the treeline, he came upon a series of flickering orbs. They seemed like something strung together along the branches, so he followed them, whereupon he discovered a moonlit pool. In the pool lay a woman who beckoned Rismald forward. Having given his heart to his true love, Isobel, he nobly refused and turned to find his way home. Unfortunately, the faeries decided to punish Rismald for disappointing them, and transformed him into a small mouse.
