The Isle of the Dead

System: Mythras
GM: Newt

In the Kingdom of Tura when monarchs die, they make the final journey to the Isle of the Dead. It is an arduous journey that only royalty may make. The corpse is prepared by the priesthood of Tura and then is taken overland to a secret port, where a boatman takes the body to the Isle and from there it passes through the Door to Eternity into parts unknown.

Only the Brotherhood of Tura knows that something has gone wrong with the delivery of the last King.  Now they must get a group of foreigners together to find out what has happened. Perhaps these chosen ones will get the opportunity to peak through the Door of Eternity and see what is on the other side?

Mythras is a D100 based roleplaying game of Mythic Fantasy. This adventure is a straight forward introduction to the system and its way of presenting living mythology. It features characters who come from a vibrant and living culture, exploring a realm where the grim reality of death is all too every day.

Inspired by this painting by Arnold Böcklin, and the brooding orchestra music of Rachmaninov.
