I’ve had the rough outline for this oneshot for some time, but it wasn’t until I saw the encounter “The Minotaur Bridge (pdf)” on Runehammer’s Patreon (that I can highly recommend btw), that the pieces fell in place. The adventure is made for D&D 5th edition for a lvl 2 party of 3-5 players. A quick thanks to Hankerin Ferinale aka Runehammer for letting me link to directly to The Minotaur Bridge (pdf). I’m going to break the 4th wall (or the DM screen) a bit here by giving you the full DM outline. Afterwards there are photos and comments from…

Last year I made a oneshot for a couple of old friends. I was quite happy with it and when Bad Moon Cafe opened up nearby, I decided to run the same adventure again and I’ve now run it twice. Here are some photos of the two sessions. 07 Feb 2019 This game was very hack and slashy. Mainly players fairly new to the game, which makes this a fun experience for them as my style is quite old school. Favourite moment goes to on of the newbies playing Paladin who asked “Can I Smite and roll the awakening Flesh…

The last campaign session we played, neatly wrapped up 2018 as a season, so for the last D&D game of the year, I made this Christmas Oneshot called “Gnome More Mr Nice Guy1” inspired by these these absolutely fantastic Gnomes from Northumbrian Tin Soldier. Below is how the game went, but if you are a Dungeon Master yourself and want to run this, you can find the actual Oneshot here. Since this was a oneshot, it gave my players a chance to try something new.. a new class that is, because the race was Mousling. The Ranger chose to be the Fighter…

Not entirely sure how this happened, but I was chatting to the two friends I’ve known the longest (30+ years by now) about getting together in Denmark and somehow it turned into: Let’s play a D&D oneshot Now, the two of them have very different backgrounds in roleplaying games: One used to play D&D and Shadowrun solidly for a lot of years while stationed in the barracks (he is in the army). The other played a bit of Drager of Dæmoner back when I picked up the game in mid-8os but that’s about it. Not really knowing how much they actually…

Having played a spin-off game with one of my players and his kids who both knew Dungeons and Dragons already, I made a second game for same team + one of my other players and his two sons as well: The Kidnapping at Dragonspeak! To make it easier for the boys who hadn’t played before, I made these children-friendly character sheets. . Epilogue Hundreds of years ago the dragons ruled the world from the mountain “Dragonspeak”. Now the dragons are long gone and the town of “Drakenheim” at the foot of Dragonspeak is one of the most peaceful and pleasant…

I had one of my player’s and his family over for lunch last Sunday and last minute, he asked whether I fancied running a mini-adventure for him and his young son and daughter. He would be using his main character, Feather, the Cleric, who just hit level 3, and the kids would use the characters they used to play at home, both also level 3. I did start thinking up an adventure, but then I decided to do a Google on “quick oneshots” and found this amazing collection of One Page Dungeons. I had a quick look through roughly 20…

We recently had to stop Chapter 2 mid-game as it turned out to be longer than expected and it has been difficult to get the whole party together to continue due to illness and the fact we are heading into the holiday season. We left the party in the middle of a dungeon, but in a safe place where they could take breather. So to keep momentum going, I decided to make another spin-off chapter that would kick off while the party was resting in the Chapter 2 dungeon. The characters of the three players attending took the first rest,…
