Adventure- The Pudding Pit of Horror

Pudding Put ImageWhat better way to bond your players than a missing persons’ case where they’ll trudge through murky sewers and face off against a colossal monstrosity born from a necromancer’s madness? Our newest free adventure -The Pudding Pit of Horror- offers a modest experience that’s chalk full of the best sort of awful that D&D players love. And since it’s only a few hours long, busy gamers can probably finish it in a single evening.

Gather your player characters (level 3-4) and make your way down to the pit.

Adventure – Here There Be Spiders

maggot-god-greyscaleThe Kind Spider and Maggot God are natural enemies, waging a war between good and evil which civilized races know little about. When the player characters stumble into this conflict, will they save the day? Or will their bungling lead to disaster for a nearby village?

As the GM, it’s probably best if your players don’t know what to expect from this adventure going forward. The danger of Kind Spiders comes not from direct combat, but when dungeon crawlers rush into battle like the gold-seeking mercenaries they are. This means the dungeon can be run twice: Once when the party is hired to clear it, and again to fix the mess they made.

This adventure uses the Kind Spider and Maggot God monster stats featured in our Weekly Beastie series.

Adventure: Beware the Silent Stalker

silent-stalkerWhen we first started pitching adventures for Gorgon Breath Games, I had a particular interest in producing a one-page dungeon. Sometimes, when I’m writing an adventure, I can be a bit too verbose. I thought it would be a fun challenge to see what I could do in the confines of a limited space. Luckily, I’d also just finished writing up the monster sheet for the Silent Stalker, so I had some ideas for a simple but intimidating dungeon that worked well in that format.

Beware the Silent Stalker is the result. The player party is trapped in an underground castle where the only other occupant is the titular Silent Stalker. Wandering its halls in search of a way out, they have to evade the Stalker as it ruthlessly pursues them. Overall, I was happy with the results and I hope you enjoy running this with your players.

Adventure: The Curse of Skeleton Cove

We’re happy to present our first dungeon adventure – and just in time for Halloween!

Horror elements are tricky to insert into fantasy RPGs. Sure, there’s no shortage of monsters and ghouls, but creating a genuine sense of dread is challenging when resurrection is just one Cleric visit away. Which isn’t to say fear is impossible, just that it usually comes from subverting the expectations of dungeon crawlers who think they can wander into any dangerous locale and emerge unchanged.

Marshall’s The Curse of Skeleton Cove emerged from some Halloween-themed discussions about how to unsettle your players while still keeping to the usual “loot everything” mentality. We’d love to hear how it works with your player groups!
