Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan 5e

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

The classic module returns for D&D 5th edition! This is an adventure filled with combat, puzzles and role playing opportunities around every corner and many a new player has cut their teeth on this one. You're trapped in the dungeon with no way out and only yourselves and each other to rely on. Influenced heavily by the Mayan, Aztec, and Inca cultures, the module is filled with atmosphere and details. Expect a good balance of exploration, problem solving, and combat.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players should be familiar with the rules and will create their 5th level characters beforehand. Players should download the Beyond 20 app to link their D&D Beyond dice to Roll20. You will need an account on Roll20 (free) to play.

What I provide

Dice will be rolled on Roll20 or D&D Beyond using the Beyond 20 app.

Gameplay details

HST was originally a tournament module from the 70s, so it has a good balance of combat and puzzle solving. There are opportunities for role playing as well, so I expect a mix of the three. Dungeon exploring is a major theme of the module, as all the action takes place inside one.
