This adventure is meant for characters of levels 4 to 6. The default setting is the Barony of Loup-Montagne, but any remote, heavily wooded principality with highly superstitious residents will do. The Barony of Loup-Montagne is a remote region of densely forested hills cut by steep-banked streams, rocky outcrops, and darkly shadowed dales. Any similar area in your campaign world can fill in, with or without the French-sounding names used here. The center of Loup-Montagne is the town of Roulune. It is home to about five hundred residents in roughly eighty households. Roulune is hardly a metropolis, but it is the biggest town for miles around, thanks largely to the remoteness of the region. Only a few roads of any consequence pass through the town: the main route is a trade road through the tangled, wooded hills that dominate this region. Baron Chaput exacts a toll on traders who use the road, in exchange for keeping it safe from bandits and monsters. The toll is not excessive and most traders pay it willingly, because the road is considered safe, by and large. Incidents of robbery and violence along the highway are rare within the barony.
"As you approach, the miners themselves appear from their hidey-holes around the ruined camp.

Shrouded in damp blankets and shivering, they stare at you silently, even disbelievingly. There is only one left among them who appears to have a little iron left in his spine. He tightens his grip on his pick and steps forward. 'Are you here to help?'" Some doors should never be opened... A group of miners uncover a dark secret and find themselves fighting for their lives as the dead walk again.

"The Devil Box" is a D&D adventure suitable for four 2nd-level PCs, although it can be modified for parties of 1st or 4th-5th levels as noted int the "Scaling the Adventure" sidebar. Characters completing the adventure are likely to advance to 3rd level. Much of the action takes place in a small town during a festival; this town can easily be dropped into an existing campaign. Since "The Devil Box" expects the PCs to deal with kobolds as temporary allies, it throws in some ethical dilemmas for good-aligned characters. Paladins and good-aligned clerics my have difficulties with such an alliance, but kobolds are definitely the lesser of the two evils involved in this adventure. If the party spurns the assistance of potential kobold allies, you may wish to modify the adventure to make it a bit easier on the player characters, as encounters have been written with the assumption that the heroes have a little help. Uploader's note: A hilariously creepy adventure involving a circus (freeakshow), with in style illustrations! (Grid maps included, but not separate maps.)
