Assassin Mountain is an adventure module for the Al-Qadim setting using the 2nd-edition Dungeons & Dragons ruleset.

The Caliph of Shadows awaits!

The Assassins of Zakhara strike in silence and from darkness, certain of their faith and the rightness of their cause. The slayers carry out the orders of their Grandfather assassin, never questioning his wisdom or direction.

Assassin Mountain is the DM's guide to the secrets and objectives of the assassins.
Captured inside this Sourcebox, you'll find new information about the holy slayers of Zakhara, from their methods, tools, and secret structure to the means used to ensure the silence of their members.

The adventures within pit the player characters against the slayers of the Everlasting, one of the most powerful and influential sects in Zakhara. The web of deceit and terror spun by the Everlasting weaves its way into the city of Liham, entangling the PCs and leading them to the perils of the assassins' stronghold.
