The Knights Synar – 5E
(From Zan’s Adventures)

*

*

Inspired by the legend of the Knights Templar, “The Knights Synar” is a dark tale of virtue and vice for 5E DnD.  Your players will discover the knights’ long lost castle.  Once there, they’ll plumb its dangerous corners, trying to reveal the holy order’s dark history.

*

As you flip open the ancient book, you feel a warm breeze, which smells of hot sand, blow over you. Oddly though, the breeze affects nothing else in the room, not even rustling a single of the book’s yellowed pages.

*

Slowly, you begin to page through the ancient tome. As you do, you unearth tales of grand crusades. Lavish chronicles of great victories of the Knights Synar over the forces of evil. Interspersed between these accounts, you find liturgies and songs, dedicated to praising the goddess Clara.

*

As you scan through the book, you discover that the last third of the tome is full of empty pages. The final entry in the book is the tale of a crusade to a distant barren land.

*

Designed for players from levels 2-4. Though feel free to adjust the module’s difficulty for any level group that you wish to play with. The 5e DnD compatible adventure module is designed to be both beginner DM and experienced DM friendly.
