A D&D 5e adventure for a level 3 party. Beccan Morcom is the village leader of Coniston, a small mountain farming community tucked within a lush valley. She has put out a call for hunters and adventurers to clear the surrounding area of owlbears that have grown aggressive of late, killing the village goats and attacking Talwyn as she hunted for healing plants at the ruins outside of town. Our adventurers are late to answer Beccan’s call for aid. As they make their way toward Coniston, they are stopped by Willem McPhearson, an owlbearologist intent on studying the creatures in this area. Just as he is telling them of the inherent majesty of owlbears, a cry of agony echoes through the forest, followed by a triumphant hoot. Senseless monsters or threatened creatures? Our adventurers must decide for themselves whether they want to help Coniston’s villagers, or the owlbears. Or maybe, with the right approach, peace can be restored between man and nature.
