Map of the Week No. 407 is from the forthcoming Jörðgarð Trails adventure "A Tale of 2 Books." When the adventuring PCs reach this last dungeon chamber, they find both their nemesis, the red draug (undead) Teitur and the goal they're seeking, the Black Book of Martröð. However, to get the book, they'll have to get past Teitur, which probably means destroying him. The key:
1. The position of Teitur when the PCs enter the chamber. Teitur will be awaiting them. His warning signals have made clear that guests are coming, There is no chance for surprise.
2. The Vortex of Entropy. Anyone who enters the vortex will be utterly destroyed, body and soul. A human destroyed in the vortex never can be restored to life, not even by a miracle.
