Critical Hits #16 - Lotus Hunters
an encounter by Simon Lucas
Encounter Level 5
Critical Hits is an ever-expanding series of short encounters designed to be easily dropped into an existing campaign. Providing everything a DM needs for a night's play, Critical Hits are the perfect way to take the players off at a tangent from the main storyline.
In Lotus Hunters, the characters come across one of the most rare plants in the realms; fabled to be the key ingredient to many healing potions and worth a king's ransom. Along the way, the party finds that their exploits inspire both admiration and jealousy, and realize that they are not the only ones to have discovered the valuable vegetation. Can they cope with the attentions of their fanatical admirers, and can they make it back to civilization with their precious find, or will the hunt for the strange plants be a quest too far?
