CM5 Mystery of the Snow Pearls is part of a series, CM1-CM9, from 1984-1987, for upper-level ("Companion" tier) PCs.
This module is designed for solo-adventuring, but can be adapted to party play. The design focuses on riddles and tactical, rather mechanical, story structure, with little high adventure and back-story or meaningful NPCs.
The PC must solve the riddles of an evil mage to regain the magic pearl which protects the character's village.
The player is a Companion level elf, responsible for safeguard one of the four, magical pearls that protect the land of Tarylon. Milgo, an evil wizard with a sense of humor, challenges the elf to find and return the lost item. Without it, the entire region is threatened.
One of four magical, snow white pearls protecting Tarylon has been stolen! And you, a Companion level elf, are responsible for its safe keeping. Now the very existence of your beautiful village is threatened unless you can find the powerful pearl. Milgor, the evil wizard with an evil sense fo fun, challenges you to find the pearl, and return it to Tarylon.
This adventure uses a "Magic Viewer" - a piece of colored film - to reveal the hidden results of the player's choices. This includes encounters, puzzles, and traps.
