The cruel, wealthy money-lender Ebenezer has passed away. Somewhere inside his mansion, or below it, there must be treasure beyond imagination! Who cares if people speak of ghostly apparitions and other strange events...
Capture the feeling of the festive ghost stories of old with Ebenezer’s Gold, a special dungeon adventure for Gold & Glory - Seven Deadly Dungeons, written by acclaimed author Richard Woolcock!
A fabulously wealthy money-lender used to live on the outskirts of town, and he was well known for his greed and cruelty. Last year, the miserly old man passed away in his sleep, much to the delight of the locals—but after the funeral, the townsfolk found no sign of his fabulous wealth. It had seemingly vanished into thin air!
Ebenezer had spent his life hoarding gold, as well as repossessed property taken from those who couldn’t pay their debts. He even took toys from children whose parents couldn’t pay! But as he reached his twilight years, he became increasingly paranoid about thieves, and decided to hide his riches.
Unbeknownst to most people, the mansion had been built upon a long-abandoned gold mine, and a secret door in the cellar led down into the mine shafts. Ebenezer had spent months dragging all his valuables down into the old tunnels, so that when he finally died, there was nothing left for the looters.
“It’s my gold, I tell you! All mine! I will never give it up! Never! Bah, humbug!”
—Ebenezer’s last words.
