Welcome to Rod 7's headquarters for the Deluxe module of the Rod of Seven Parts for the Hollow World of Mystara. To get right to the point, Our Team has determined two Secret Origins for the Rod 7 own main NPC for the Deluxe Module which happens to be Popalotl, The Immortal Candidate mentioned in PWA 1011, he is on his final trial of Polymath, by recovering all Seven Parts of the Rod for the final time to gain his immortality, your character will get a chance based on their success to see the ascension of an immortal. The Secret are for DM's only, to get them you must answer the following four questions.
1. What the name of Hule's Leader.
2. Name the two Merchant Houses that have had a Darokin Chancellor in the history of Darokin.
3. What is the True Origin of King Kol?
4. Name the item in which the Shadow Elves gain access to the Radiance.
send the answer to me at Mktriton@hotmail.com, and you get the http code to access the two secret origins of Popalotl, whichever you would prefer. The Rod of Seven Parts have a Dragonball effect, once you cast your wish the split off, and go in seven random directions for you, to try and find them the very next year. now here are the Place in which I recommend for the following parts of the module.
For this adventure, My suggest is to have it at the city of Baraga, The major city of the the Merry Sea Pirates. The Inn and the region is rowdy enough to please, any fan of the hack an slash, and could give you a chance to use the Swashbuckling system of the Red Steel accessory set.
This Adventure should happen at the mountains where the Schattenalfen elves. This is a good way to get your character to infiltrate a shadow elf city in order, to obtain a piece of the rod.
Now for this portion of the adventure you can place it in a place, where you don't expect the people to be friendly, so I suggest Shahjapur. There is where the people tend to be xenopobic of strangers. so finding hospitality there will be rare. In fact, you can have the character land there after a shipwreck due to a freak monsoon storm, on their voyage.
