A Dungeons & Dragons (d20 System SRD3.5) mini-adventure site for 2–4 Characters Levels 4-5
The devotees to a strange collection of Saints who steal from the rich and give to the poor, have established a small local town church in the poor quarter of town. The monks of the Church of Knives hold services each weekend for a small congregation of followers who are attracted by the charity of the monks.
The local folk whisper of a secret treasure horde hidden in an underground vault beneath the church, a treasure horde stolen from unscrupulous merchants and Barron’s who hoarded too much wealth while refusing to help the destitute people of the kingdom. Having stolen only the “excessive” wealth of the Barron’s, the monks now give away the treasure as charity to the poor during their weekly sermon.
This Compass Point deals with a small-town church set up for the Church of Knives. The church acts as a focus from which the Master Monk can proselytise to the peasants and distribute the charity of the cult. While under the cover of being a small-town church the Master Monk and his loyal retainer are guardians of a hidden vault.
The Hidden Vault
When the church was built a secret second underground level was constructed to house a mechanic vault, a system of four chambers and a combination lock. The vault is employed to store a limited amount of coinage which the monks distribute to the poor during sermons, while the true nature of the vault is to store cursed artefacts that the Church of Knives has discovered.
