The Ranger's Gate

It is dusk on March 1, 908 TA. The sky is overcast. It is damp and cold, a breeze comes from the west blowing through the leafless trees of the city. It is the night of the New Moon.

You have found yourself drawn to the ramshackle old townhouse at 9 Nightingale Way. Nestled between the Military District to the north and the Poor Quarter of town to the south, the house itself was once quite elegant - probably the home of an army officer. Its facade is three stories made of stone with three stone gargoyles still sitting on a small ledge under the eaves. The stonework is crumbling in places, but the structure appears sound. The upstairs windows are boarded over.

You note with some distaste, the tang of iron in the air. Several wolf carcasses have been piled at each end of the street - undoubtedly leftovers from the Shepherd's Day celebration the previous night.

In your hand, a ragged flier reads, "Lodgers sought - 9 Nightingale Way. Room and board in exchange for light housekeeping duties. Apply after dark." You cannot remember when you picked the flier up or even coming to the house. But, here you are. The sun is setting, and you have heard rumors that a monster has been seen in this district. The details are sketchy, but it always appears after dark, and it grows more ferocious every day.

There is a note tacked to the front door. It reads "ENTER and wait in the Entrance Hall".

Past Adventures of the Irregulars

For many years The Irregulars have adventured in the Realm. From the early days of the Rice Irregulars (1981) to the most recent adventures aboard the Wanton Wench by the Lyons Irregulars, the tales of these characters - great and small - weave the fabric of the Realm. Unlike the long-running high school campaign which predictably meets once a year at Matcon, irregular adventures include everything from one-night stands to five-year, fifty plus session mega-dungeons.
