No one has been to the Kincep mansion in years -- at least, not voluntarily. Locals say the place is haunted by the last of the Kincep family line, while others say that goblins, orcs, or worse have taken up residence in the house. But all anyone can say for certain is that these days, anyone who wanders near the mansion is unlikely to come home. Can the PCs unravel the mystery of Kincep mansion and bring some semblance of safety back to the area?


This mansion was once a manor house owned by the Kinceps. They were an old and respected noble family, though not one of any great political import. Though fairly wealthy, the Kinceps lived simply and enjoyed few luxuries, avoiding anything ostentatious. The family home was large but practical, well hidden behind an encircling orchard. A small mausoleum is the final resting place of family members.

A point of pride among the Kinceps was that each generation should make its own way in life, starting out with a small inheritance and earning a living through business, adventuring, or public service.

In more recent years, a series of misfortunes and disasters all but wiped out the youngest generation of Kinceps. Many believed that the family had fallen into poverty, then died out. In fact, the sole heir, Jaccobux Kincep, had traveled to foreign lands as an adventurer and mercenary, becoming rich in the process.

DISCLAIMER: Skip William wrote the D&D adventure not me. I only made the story with the idea from the adventure itself.
