Here I am with an head over heels sandbox adventure contained in time: both an Asian OSR setting suitable for all character level, and a jasmine-infused version of Lichlords. Whether you are explorers of the Small Swords Society of Kwantoom, delvers of Cryptopolis' Undercity, or wanderers of Castle Gargantua, you'll find here a Plug n' Play gem shrouded in the heavy fumes of incense with no less than 5 liches, their lairs, the festival itself, the dragonboat race mini-game, and a 1 vs. 1 investigation à la Detective Dee.
When omens portend ill fortune for the city, the priests call upon a Dragonboat Festival: a racing competition gathering swift boatmen from all over the continent. Their ancient chants call forth the powers of the undying, waking the Flower Liches from their distant graves. For a week, the liches roam the city freely, and oversee the race, taking the losing crews as tributes and sacrifices. Once the Dragonboat Festival is finished an the liches disappear, the city's prosperity is magically replenished, and all the monetary wealth the citizenry had before the festival — player characters included — is doubled.
