About the adventure

For this one-shot adventure you must delve into a coastal cave on a rescue mission. The main aspects of this game will be exploration and combat with some roleplaying sprinkled in. If you can think on new and interesting ways to survive, I'm ready to work them into the adventure. This short encounter is set in a cave carved by tide on one side and a freshwater stream on the other. Its elevation is between the high and low tide levels. When the tide goes out, water surges north through the cave into the ocean. When the tide comes in, water surges south towards a small lagoon. The cave is filled with poisonous coral, and crabs. The crabs eat fish that are washed in by the tide and poisoned by the coral. Abundant and easy food as made them large, numerous and aggressive. You will need to get through by facing powerful tidal surges that will constantly threaten to sweep you from your feet and into the poisonous coral. You must deal with the crabs while successfully navigating these challenges With games like this, I like to have my players have a backup character just in case to promote lively action. Everything is in person and I bring everything we need. You'll also have access to my D&D beyond collection for character creation.
