Nightfang Spire has long brooded in lonely silence, shadowed within the walls of a steep defile. A tall stone column, it resembles nothing so much as an enormous fang of some vanished, mythical beast. Once, a fervent religious order thrived here - before its god was slain. Embracing that death, Nightfang Spire was transformed into a massive, hollow mortuary filled with the restless dead. When they arrive, the truth about the place is revealed in all its awful clarity.
Please note that this product does not include the map insert that came with the original version. It follows "The Standing Stone" in a loosely linked eight-adventure series, and the primary villain hearkens back to that of "The Sunless Citadel," the very first adventure in this series.
Memorable Encounters. If you're tired of fights in unremarkable ft. The lair of the adventure's villain is an appallingly delightful location for a fight. More Clerics, Fewer Rogues. Clerics are essential in Nightfang Spire, and it's not an exaggeration to say that a party without one is unlikely to survive. By contrast, rogues are severely diminished in combat effectiveness since their sneak attack ability doesn't work against undead.
Consider your party mix, and the adventure is good enough that it's worth tweaking magic items or house rules to help keep the rogues effective. It's also worth noting that as a dungeon crawl, this adventure caters to those who prefer combat over diplomacy. Not your Standard Monsters. The mooncalf seen on the adventure's cover is a well designed and interesting monster with a name that probably results in its getting teased by other monsters when the player characters aren't around.
In addition, Bruce Cordell has never found a monster that isn't made better with a clever template. Vampiric gibbering monsters and half-red-dragon flesh golems are bound to make an impression on the players. Many undead NPCs also have class levels that provide unexpected and effective capabilities. Monster design like this, which takes a known quantity and twists it in a clever and unexpected way, is a hallmark of Cordell's designs. It makes for great encounters.
Deadly Progress, Rending Foes. If there's a complaint to make about the adventure, it's that the moderately linear dungeon is full of lots of ways to die. If you're interested in adding "get ripped apart by a rending girallon" or "stumble into a save-or-die trap effect" to your bucket list, you're in luck. This isn't necessarily bad, and it is a staple of traditional old-school dungeon design, but you should make sure your group knows to expect it.
Fifth of Eight. This 10th-level adventure is the fifth in the adventure path:. About the Creators. Bruce R.

Heart of Nightfang Spire
Very nice module, and you get a very fulfilling ending if done right. Somewhat perplexed by the side quest, which I did last. The main Spire quest was great! Henchman interface was again limited, but worked somewhat. Skip to main content. Search form Search this site. Remember me.
