Tower of the Dead [BOX SET]

"Set in the dark shadows of ruined Alzira, in mountains that strike fear to the core of the bravest heart, is a tower. Within this tower, shielded by forces of darkest Chaos and mortals who have been subverted into his service, through greed or power-lust, is a force. The force hungers. It yearns for power. It thirsts for vengeance. It aches for total domination over all living men, and complete control over the dead. The force is Nilgeranthrib.
Not lightly is this name spoken. In the civilized and barbarian lands of Zarun and Thaliba, it is synonymous with unholy terror, the totality of evil and the power of Chaos. He is the Great Lich, the single adversary who has threatened existence in these lands for centuries. In their wisdom, all live in absolute terror of his might. Because of their piety and love of life, the brave men of these lands strive to contain his evil and end it.
Your valiant party enters this perpetual struggle at a time of ultimate crisis. Old Thaliba seeks isolation from common man. Zarun stands defeated in the dark forests of evil, the secret minions of the Lich are near to gaining control in Zarun and the city of Porta, The lord of the tower, a festering and cancerous boil in the heart of mortal existence, must be lanced before his putrescent evil can spill forth and inundate all that is good in the world. You are the surgeons who can, through wisdom, valor and cunning, accomplish this deed. On you rests the fate of the innocent souls of many lands, all forfeit if the Lich is suffered to live.
Tower of the Dead challenges a party of experienced adventurers to travel the deadly streets of Porta, through the evil infested forests and mountains, to the ultimate peril that waits within as walk It dares you to face the might of Nilgeranthrib in an effort to destroy him and abort his plans of vengeance and domination before they can bear fruit.
This supplement is designed for use by a Referee and four to six players who are experienced with the Powers and Perils fantasy role-playing system. It contains a book and a Referee Control Screen. The book details the Black Ring, the city of Porta and encounter situations and areas that must be crossed, or that can arise, in the course of this adventure. The Referee Control Screen is designed to aid the Referee in using this supplement. It contains important tables from the book that he will use as the adventure progresses.
Tower of the Dead Is a multi-level challenge that takes the party from simple street brawling to combat against the ultimate magical power of the Powers and Perils world. It is not for the faint at heart. It is a devastating challenge for any role-playing gamer."
