Night Terrors

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

"Heed my words struggler Soon, a reign of blood the likes of which you cannot imagine shall fall down upon you, it will be a storm of death But take heed struggler; struggle, endure contend; for that alone is the sword of one who defies death Do not forget these words."- Skull Knight. Loosely based on the classic anime, Berserk (familiarity not required)- Each player has awoken to find a mysterious brand on their body that has marked them as sacrifices toward the birth of a new Demon Lord. Every night, as soon as the sun goes down, the creatures of darkness begin to come to try to consume and collect the delectable souls of the players. The players must fend of hoards of undead and hellspawn from dusk until dawn, while simultaneously moving to track down the mysterious being that haunts their shared dreams, disturbing the little rest they are afforded each day from dawn to dusk. Who is this shadowy figure that is seemingly responsible for each players mark of sacrifice and how will they rid themselves of the mark? Will you stand and fight? Or fall to the terrors of the night?

Gameplay details

Each night the players will travel the lands searching for reprieve from their nightly struggle for survival, never staying in one place for too long, for evil is always right on their tail. Never resting at night, for that is when their war wages. The party will come up with ways to fend off hoards of demons, devils, and undead each night that come to claim their souls- and occasionally must deal with the depravity and desperation of man wherever they seek refuge during the day. Large amounts of combat, clever planning, and fleeing for your lives will be a nightly endeavor. During the days you will investigate the evils that so clearly have their fangs in this putrid, corrupt world, in order to find and destroy the demons that branded you- so that you may one day end the curse that plagues you each night and eventually find rest.
