About the adventure

'The small town of Waterside has seen its fair share of adventurers come and go, hungry for the treasures and unlocked mysteries of the nearby Caves of Chaos. You are no different, each with your own agenda as you travel to the seemingly abandoned valley in the Giant's Run Mountains. Be warned: few adventurers emerge alive with little more than their sanity.' **** A dungeon crawl one-off based on the classic Caves of Chaos. Players will delve into a dark and dangerous chasms of monsters and mysteries. Content includes a nearby Podunk town as a starting point, an intricate cave system filled with classic 5e enemies and magical treasure, and a narrative-driven mystery hidden within the cold stone walls.
