The Mystery of the Cursed Statuette

a mystery adventure for 5E and D&D

I’m running this with a group of strangers gathered from discord communities. And we are having so much fun! Interesting characters (and cats!) and a fun mystery. Did I mention – cats?

Can you solve the case before more blood is spilled on Winterhold’s foggy streets?

The Mystery of the Cursed Statuette is a mystery adventure inspired by the famous detective Sherlock Holmes for 4th-level characters and includes scalable encounters to suit any level from 1 to 20.
The book also includes the compendium The Magpie Secret Society with new monsters, magic items, unique lore, and more.

In the dead of night, a burglary takes place at Halls of Lore in Winterhold, and a
small porcelain figurine is stolen.

Sergeant Aramina Thornberry searches for a group of private detectives who can help
her solve the crime, since the town’s guard is busy with a series of recent kidnappings.

However, the simple investigation soon turns into a deadly chase featuring a
cursed statuette, a dangerous primordial demon, and a shadowy web of plots.

Look for clues. Sharpen your wits. Interview the witnesses.
Can you solve the mystery before it is too late?
