Start Your One-on-One Campaign
An introductory adventure for a first-level character and their DM, First Blush* teleports you beyond the confines of a castle to an ancient mountainside ruin with a secret buried deep inside that your unique destiny invites you to uncover…
This adventure is perfect for new and veteran players alike and is especially ideal for starting your own duet game!
What Customers Are Saying:
I picked this up because my girlfriend wanted to try out D&D, but was iffy about starting with a large group. I also wanted to see the game from the other side of the DM screen…As a relatively new player and DM, it took us some time to settle into our characters. But after a short while, we had a blast playing through this across 2 2-hour sessions! The end of this first part left us both wanting more! The next two chapters are in my cart now. We can’t wait to dive into them!– Daniel
We will say this was a great introduction for anyone new to D&D!
Level up and embark on a quest
In Second Glance,* you and your new companion find yourselves in a druid colony in desperate need of your help! This second-level adventure invites the PC to investigate the grove and its mysterious residents before traveling to a too-perfect town containing twisted secrets.
You’ll take on a calculating magistrate, an addled cleric, and dark forest creatures but find that other, more ancient mysteries lie in wait just beneath the surface.
This adventure also comes with several side-quests for additional challenges, loot, and fun!
This adventure combines all the elements I look for in D&D – mystery, fascinating creatures, NPCs who could be allies or enemies, conflict, and most importantly lots of opportunities for roleplay. That last is the best part of this adventure. A lot of premade adventures are all combat. There is nothing wrong with a straightforward dungeon crawl, but if you are looking for something that has a little more depth and lots of options for your PCs, this is perfect. And they include all the details that take the most time like maps and monster stats, so I can focus my energy on fitting the adventure into my campaign. Definitely worth it!– Rachel
Cure the Crystalline Curse
In Third Time’s the Charm,* you’ll negotiate power clashes in a forest as you track down a few magical items that will restore your companion and end the curse.
This adventure brings the story arc to a close as the PC decides who they will trust and what they’re willing to do to help their friend.
