The Curse of Ipaúna

The archives of the Society of Jesus contain a mysterious letter, which tells of a group of some fifty Frenchmen who entered the salt marsh beyond Uruçumirim and were never seen again.

The letter also speaks of a ‘great treasure’ brought by Captain Remy LaSalle, leader of the expedition. In the years since, no banner company has found this supposed treasure. And now a group of young adventurers has gone missing while searching for it.

Will your group succeed in tracking them down and bringing them home safely?
Or will they simply become the latest victims of the Curse of Ipaúna?

Number of participants: One mediator and 3 to 6 players. The ideal number is five participants in total.

Time: 3 to 6 hours, depending on the players’ choices.


The Legend of the Golden Condor

Fool’s Gold?

An indigenous legend describes a sacred grotto, filled with gold, in the unexplored lands of the interior. Many have already disappeared in search of this treasure. The noble Dom Casimiro de Lucena, however, believes that this story is really a clue to the whereabouts of an object far more valuable than gold. When he also disappears, will your group of adventurers be able to follow in the footsteps of Dom Casimiro and unravel this centuries-old mystery?

The Legend of the Golden Condor is the first adventure for The Elephant & Macaw Banner Roleplaying Game. It’s set in the jungles of Brazil in the year 1576, and you can play it in one or two sessions. It’s full of fun material you can use in the EAMB setting or with any fantasy game with pre-modern tech levels, including: 

  • A 7-point pointcrawl for the adventurers to explore from a derelict fortress outpost to a shaman’s camp, to a mummy’s tomb and a terrifying swamp
  • The pursuit of a villainous nobleman whom you need to bring back alive to claim your reward 
  • Creatures and magic from the folklore of Brazil (and beyond!), such as the evil Corpo-Seco (‘Dry-Body) tree monsters 
  • 5 pre-generated player characters with troubled pasts and adventure in their souls

The Legend of the Golden Condor is ideal for beginners but also offers a new and unfamiliar setting for experienced fantasy gamers.
