5e: Along Came a Spider

DD Along Came a Spider 5e 600These Spiders Aren’t So Itsy Bitsy

Giant spiders have overrun Mossdale, and every last villager is either dead and dessicated, or cocooned and abducted. But what were they after, and who coordinated the vermin to attack en masse? Could it have been the local ettercap or a crazed arachnophile druid… or was something far more sinister behind the attack? Can the adventurers rescue the missing citizens and foil the plans of the nefarious mind behind this dastardly deed before it is too late?

Along Came a Spider is an exciting adventure module in Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Deadly Delves series for the Fifth Edition of the World’s Oldest Fantasy Roleplaying Game. This 20-page adventure is designed to challenge four to five 1st-level PCs like no other content has to date. Inside this volume, you’ll find:

  • 4 new monsters, 2 NPCs, a unique trap, and more material for your Fifth Edition campaign
  • Two full-color maps, one of the ruined alchemist shop and another of the an ancient stone circle where spiders and worse horrors prowl
  • Enough content to get your group of 1st-level PCs through a night of play with little preparation time required, bringing your group to 2nd level

Dangers Unknown. Treasures Untold. Adventure Awaits.

5e/Pathfinder: Proposed Adventure Design Format

Deadly Delves: To Claw the SurfaceGood day,

As inspired by this forum thread, we at JBE talked about it and came up with a modified adventure design format. Please tell us what you think by leaving a comment here or on our Facebook/Google Plus page or on the forum thread you clicked on to get there.

We want to know what you think for how we should lay out future adventures.

Shrine (CL 5)
Monster:
You see three spiders in the corner. They turn to look at you the moment that you opened the door. 
Additional text for the GM talking about how there’s a 4th spider hidden, and how none of them have eaten a while and they’re all really hungry and will attack at the first opportunity.
Trap:
At the far end of the room is an altar with a skeleton lying on it. Upon its chest lies an axe, with its closer arm grasping it. 
Additional text for the GM explaining that it is a trap and when the first player stands within 5 feet of it, the arm swings the axe.
Room:
Standard read aloud text that the players sleep through. 
Additional text for the GM explaining the room’s history, yada yada yada.
Treasure:
In the corner of the room, you see a small pile of coins, but from this distance you cannot tell if they are gold or copper. 
Additional text for GM saying exactly what is there as well as talking about the potion in the webs.
Insert Spiders and trap stat blocks here.

Dangers of a Forgotten Past Awakened in the Deep

When hobgoblin raiders kidnap a caravan full of workers and supplies, the adventurers set off to get them all back.

Now, the adventurers must risk it all to prevent the minions of an ancient enemy from visiting death and destruction upon the land.

Meet the Iconics: Darlanrea

Being Friday, I thought we would do something a little different for today’s preview. Today, I would like to take a moment to introduce you to our first signature character to grace the cover of one of our adventures. She is as tough as she is graceful and earns her place on this adventure, fighting against a terrifying black dragon. Here is a bit more about her.

Name: Darlanrea Moonbright
Race: Elf
Gender: Female
Age: 121
Background: Lieutenant in the Elven High Guard
Reason for Becoming an Adventurer: Unknown; Darlanrea refuses to discuss it.

Lieutenant Darlanrea Moonbright was once a fast-rising star in the Elven High Guard. At the Battle of Summer Ridge, she distinguished herself and earned her commission by taking command of her squad after their officer was killed. Despite being outnumbered four to one, her troops held off several orc fangs bearing down on them until reinforcements arrived, at the cost of more than a few lives. She was later awarded the Mithril Leaf for her bravery during a skirmish with a horde of skeletons at Fall’s Reach.

During her impressive military career, Darlanrea learned to fight with many weapons. Unlike other elves who rely on their dexterity in battle, her physical strength is her main asset in combat. Her twin longswords, Fade and Frosteel, have made their way into the legends of local monster tribes as dealers of doom and and retribution, and few have ever stood against her in single combat for more than a handful of seconds. Darlanrea also earned a formidable reputation as an archer that never misses her mark. She has killed many a foe from a great distance with the assistance of her longbow, Eagle’s Eye. The tattoo on her face was originally started to hide a scar she earned in battle with an ettercap. She liked it so much that she had the artist add to it after every major engagement in which she fought. She has a number of other tattoos on her body as well although most are hidden from sight by her armor. Her favorite one is her old unit’s symbol, an arrow and a longsword crossed beneath a magnolia tree, inked on her left forearm. Some of her other tattoos include a pegasus in heavy barding, the draconic symbol for honor and gold, and a faerie dragon sleeping beneath a daisy.

No one knows precisely why Darlanrea chose to end her military career. All that is known is that one morning she approached the company’s commanding officer and informed him that she was resigning her commission and her position in the Elven High Guard. Some say there were tears in her eyes when she resigned, as if she harbored a dark secret or great burden. Witnesses say she was disheveled and bruised when she delivered her resignation, and speculate that she may have been attacked by one of her fellow soldiers shortly beforehand. A few whisper that she decided she could make more coin as an adventurer than as a soldier. But no one really knows for certain why she left the Elven High Guard–and if Darlanrea has confided her reason in anyone, they aren’t talking.
