About the adventure

5e Speedruns feature condensed versions of D&D classics optimized to be played in a single session. These fast-paced adventures feature a random ensemble of heroes pitted against the best traps, monsters, and puzzles D&D has to offer! Characters are selected randomly with over 100 possible options including several added for comedic value. Zombie cleric? Gorilla Monk? The dice will determine which of these brave heroes you get to command. When (not if) your character meets a sad and untimely end, roll up a new one and rejoin the party at the next waypoint. In addition to the randomness of characters, loot is also randomly generated after each encounter. What will you find? A powerful magic item, or something a bit less useful? As if that wasn't enough, each session will feature a classic D&D villian tormenting the heroes as they go. Even forcing them to draw from the dreaded Deck of Many Things or unleashing wild magic upon them. A fun time for all! Sessions can be scheduled for online (Fantasy Grounds) or In-Person!

How to prepare

For online games, they should download and install the Fantasy Grounds Unity Demo. No license is required. We use Discord for voice so that too should be installed if it is not installed already.

What I provide

All resources required to play will be supplied.

Gameplay details

Beginner Friendly with a focus on action and humor. Characters are somewhat disposable so there tends to be a bit more risk taking than with a character the players are invested in.
