Dragon Hunt 5E

Posted in D&D 5E by Michael LaBossiere on February 12, 2018

The once peaceful town of Gremsel is no longer peaceful. Several months ago a ferocious red dragon landed in the center of the town and gave the people an ultimatum: either they would pay  tribute or he would consume every creature in the town, from the smallest cat to the largest cow. Unable to stand against such a beast, the people agreed to his demand.

Hope arrived in town with a new magistrate possessing funds to hire bold adventurers. Sadly for the good folks of Gremsel, hope quickly departed down the dragon’s belly as he boldly killed and consumed the adventurers, returning only their charred skulls to the center of town.

Desperate and short on funds, the magistrate of Gremsel has put out a call for heroes bold (and generous) enough to face the dragon. Will the new heroes slay the dragon or shall their charred skulls join the tastefully arranged pile in the center of the town?

Dragon Hunt is intended for a party of 8th-11th level characters.

Available now for 99 cents on Dungeon Masters Guild.

Here are some of the features of the adventure:

  • A dragon. In a dungeon.
  • Detailed maps for the area and dungeons.
  • Full statistics are included for all encounters—no need to look up monsters.
  • A robust narrative with opportunities for both role-play and combat.
  • Hero Lab support.
  • For D&D 5th Edition

    Hmmm … sounds like “The Minotaur”. Seems like a game like this could be equally exciting and maybe more educational if the authors would adhere more closely to the original story …

      Well, the story of the Minotaur did set the stage for using dungeons and then putting dragons in them.

      The problem with sticking to the Minotaur story is that you could probably only play the game once. Fighting the Minotaur everyday would get pretty dull.

    I’ve always wondered about dragon psychology.

    I mean, if I gained added manoeuverability by flying, and it was a guaranteed escape route for me as well, the last place you’d find me is an enclosed underground dungeon. A big open cave high on the side of a mountain, sure, but not underground. Paging evolutionary biologists!
