R&D D&D Adventures
We’re excited to offer the first volume of adventure shorts in our newly launched role-playing game adventure series. These short adventures, written for the new Dungeons & Dragons® fifth edition, can be played as a stand-alone adventures or dropped into an existing campaign. Each adventure includes a few monsters, traps, obstacles and treasure to get your new characters started. Each adventure also includes a map that can be used to set up your own player grid.
For as long as we’ve been gaming, heroes have ventured out and cut their teeth on the various humanoid tribes in an attempt to make a name for themselves and get rich. Now the tables have turned, and it’s the goblinoids chance to get revenge. Part 1 of 2.
This version of X2 is designed for use to be compatible with D&D™ 5th edition, for 4-5 characters of 3rd-5th level. The scope of this adventure is meant to be a few-session break from your current campaign, to play as the monsters for a neat change of pace. While it can be part of a greater campaign, it has not been designed as such, and thus may be a bit linear in design. Part 2 of 2.
It’s been a year since those insipid heroes from the Keep had cleared out the caves for their own purposes. They’ve now been cleaned up and are home to dozens of miners and their families as a vein of silver was discovered. Well, it’s time to take them back. Reclaiming the Caves on the Borderlands is an adventure where you play the role of humanoids (orcs, goblins, etc) or traditional races as mercenaries. You must compete against other humanoid factions in an attempt to reclaim the caves for yourselves. How you do that is up to you. Do you ally with another faction? Do you manage to gain control of the caves before the Keep’s forces manage to rally an attacking force?
We’ve all been there. You’ve created your class you wanted to play without knowing what anyone else is playing, and a session or two into your game, you wished you went a different route. Thus is the inspiration behind RISE OF HEROES. With some house rules of starting and advancing as level 0 PCs, you get to experience the group dynamic before you get locked into a particular class. Let there be no mistake, however. This adventure is a full adventure, designed to be completed after 2-3 sessions, depending on how long you spend on each. There are also a few options for the players to follow the main plotline, rather than get railroaded down one particular path.
Ten Red Crows Press
A Little Bit of Thievery is an unconventional freeform adventure for level 1 characters. The players are contracted to steal a magic item at a noble’s fancy party, and are forced to abandon their weapons and rely on their wits to survive. Mayhem required and violence (mostly) optional. Success might bring the ire of an elite with a panache for vengeance and money to burn. Beats killing giant rats in the safety of a basement for a few silver pieces, right?
