In Vengeance of Alphaks, an evil Immortal from the plane of entropy returns to threaten the world again, through treachery and treason.[1]

The immortal Alphaks seeks revenge against the human race by provoking conflict and fomenting war. Strange dreams warn the player characters of impending battles and treachery. During a battle against dragons and giants, a visiting cleric provides information on the source of the trouble, and the party explores Coiger's Lair.
