The Third Installment in our Crystalline Curse Trilogy!
The third adventure of our introductory duet campaign series is now available for download on DMsGuild!* Third Time’s the Charm takes the player and DM through the forest and tests what you’re willing to do for what matters most to you.
Questing through the woods, you will have several important decisions to make. Which side will you take between a wizard and the Keepers of the Veil? Will you be able to find the materials necessary to help cure your friend of the ancient evil that assails him? And when it comes down to it, what are you willing to sacrifice for what you believe in?
Those who organically regenerate, afflict metal and the lungs, and are reborn from death are mighty yet small. Others flit about, felt but unseen. Greater mysteries than these lie within the Veil, near to the land of Faerie, clinging to the magic of forgotten times. True travelers know that stories are best believed when lived, and those who best believe, live.Rai’tyl, twenty-second Head Keeper of the Veil
Third Time’s the Charm picks up where Second Glance left off and invites the PC to find a wizard who can help heal the Crystalline Curse slowly paralyzing Garren, the PC’s friend and protector. As the party grows closer on this adventure, learning to depend on one another, they must also navigate the Veiled Wood’s changing landscape, deciding who they can trust and who they will help.
This story-focused adventure is now available for download on DMsGuild!

The Proving Glade is a perfect follow-up adventure to Third Time’s the Charm! It’s also set in a forest, though one somewhat removed from Stellarin and Serephina. In this adventure, a hungry force is destroying the forest and the small town outside its borders. Will your party have the wherewithal to navigate the treacherous forest, pass its surprising tests, and uncover what’s truly going on?
The Penshaw Poisonings adventure is set in our homebrew world of Azuria and available exclusively to our DnD Duet Community! The town guard of Penshaw needs your help to stop the slow transformations of the populace into zombies! They’re not sure how the outbreak started, but the search will lead you to fiery elemental beings, lycanthropes, and a satyr herbalist among other exciting NPCs!
Back to the Beginning
We’d love for you to check out the first adventure in this narrative arc, First Blush,* and see where the story began. Then, you can make your way to the town of Duskhollow for the second installment in the series, Second Glance* and find out what—or who—has been unleashed in the forest.
We also created a light-hearted Sune’s Day adventure, Cupid’s Sparrow,* for parties of any size who want to attend a festival and uncover the source of a few amusing mishaps.
