About the adventure

TOMB OF HORRORS 5e Adaptation WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!!! NOT RECOMMENDED FOR FIRST TIME PLAYERS!!! This is undoubtedly the hardest dungeon ever conceived. Experience paranoia like never before as you watch your party members die gruesome deaths, before your own life is taken. Still here? Congratulations, you are one of the few with enough false courage that might make you last more than ten feet into the tomb. This is an adapted version of the infamous Gary Gygax AD&D module Tomb of Horrors, played in D&D 5th Edition, but still keeping all of the horror that Gygax intended. This is NOT Tomb of Annihilation. Games are 3-6 players at Level 5, with 3-4 hour sessions. Campaigns can last 4+ sessions depending on how quickly you work as a team or how in-depth you want to play.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Please have Discord installed, access to Roll20, and a good internet connection. You don't need to show your face or share your real name with others if you don't feel comfortable doing so, but video does allow me to read body language in case people are getting bored or upset. If you keep your video off and are feeling these emotions, please do not hesitate to speak up or message me about your experience so we can change things up!

What I provide

I will provide a list of pre-built characters that you can choose from to play (unless you request ahead of time your current party to play through the tomb). I will walk you through how to use Roll20 if you are unfamiliar with it, though how well you study and know your character will be up to you.

Gameplay details

The Tomb of Horrors module is meant to be challenging and a brain teaser. If you are impatient when you make a mistake, you will not like this game. Death is expected (and having it be an unfair death is common), so come prepared to roll with it if it happens. Gary Gygax made the module challenging and I know a lot of people want to play it as close to the original as possible, which is what I want to offer them. There will be planning, puzzle solving, working as a group, fighting some monsters, but mostly attempting to survive the traps within. Content should not exceed PG-13, and if there is ever anything that you are uncomfortable with just message me and I can change the flow of the game. There are ways to win, though the module specifically instructs the GM not give hints, or lead them to the end on purpose. I will be as neutral as possible, while still making sure that we do have FUN! I really do care about the players, besides what I put their characters through, and I am conscious of how unfair this module will seem. I will do everything I can to make sure it is fun, but if you are getting tired of slamming your head into a wall because you can't figure out a puzzle, please let me know so you can spend you money on something that makes you happy if you want to take a break or leave the campaign. This campaign is different from any module out there in my opinion, but I am excited to tie in roleplaying to help us all have a good time! If you are still here and truly think you can handle dying over and over again, then congratulations - you've passed the first puzzle: Accepting Your Doom.

How will character creation work

Characters will be Level 5, pre-built on Roll20. UNLESS! You have a party of your own that you want try Tomb of Horrors as a side-quest for your current campaign. This is acceptable and I am more lenient on the party level if this is something the entire party agrees to. Message me if your group wants to play this, and we can discuss their backstories and I can learn more about the party dynamic before we play.
