The Tomb of Dusk: An introductory 5e One-shot

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Roll20, Theater of the Mind

Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

This is a special introductory one-shot meant to help players get a feel for me as a GM as well as my setting of Estemor, which I run as an on-going campaign. This is a One-Shot session. That means that this game will be a singular story rather than part of any on-going campaign. Everything will be resolved during the allotted time with no plans for future sessions continuing the adventures of the characters. Players will join at a specified starting level. Character sheets may be provided.

Gameplay details

The Tomb of Dusk is a very archetypal D&D adventure. It contains light exploration, combat and a simple but evocative dungeon. This game is rated PG-13 for some violence.
