The brief rest helps, but we still look at each other with pained expressions. The Creator is dead, and those demons may have ended us if not for a damn magic rug.

My thoughts are dark as we swim back through the waterlogged temple, emerging into sunlight. Styx sputters – the only one not affected by Kethra’s water breathing, then squeaks in terror and darts under my hat. In all our time together I’ve never seen him scared before. I look up and see them.

Dozens, maybe hundreds of winged beings hover over us, including a giant golden unicorn, and the celestial dog who had spoken to us after the waterfall.

In the middle of them all is Rahmael, the leader of the celestial forces. His voice booms and echoes with absolute authority.

“Your time is at an end, little mortals. But you can do one last good thing before I cut you down. Tell us what you were told. Where is the home of the Creator?”

My Top Ten Most Anticipated Games of 2021

The ten games I’m most excited about in 2021.

We’re all hoping for a better year in 2021. This will be our first full year with the next generation of consoles courtesy of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, with confirmed sequels like Horizon Forbidden West and Halo Infinite, and not-so-confirmed sequels like the next God of War, and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Here are the top ten games I’m most excited about as of January 2021, including a few delayed games you may recognize from last year’s list.

And if you missed it, my Top Ten Games of 2020.

DMs Guild Review – Phantasms of Sri Raji

High level Tier 3 and 4 campaign modeled after Curse of Strahd, and based on the old Ravenloft module, Web of Illusions.

Phantasms of Sri Raji is described as a sequel to Curse of Strahd. Don’t get excited about a return trip to Barovia or Strahd’s resurrection, however.

It’s a sequel like the Final Fantasy games. The story has nothing to do with Strahd, but its entire narrative structure, including a magical mist-bordering dimension, a powerful villainous overlord, and a tarot reading that clues the players into critical artifacts and allies, are directly lifted from the popular 5E campaign.

Prophecies are classic narrative devices in adventures, from the Chosen One in The Matrix, Star Wars prequels, and countless JRPGs, to the Evil Approaches prophecy that serves as a background for the entire Cthulhu Mythos. Prophecies as Narrative Tools explains how to incorporate prophecies into your D&D campaign.

DnD War for the Lost Plane Session 21 Recap

We emerge from the water onto a larger room in the temple. What was once a grand-looking staging area is now little more than ruin. It holds only one occupant. A body.

The Creator.

Rycresh appears next to us in an instant. “No! No, no no,” he mutters as he approaches, reverently. A beacon of light shines from above the elderly elven body. A projected image of the Creator appears.

It speaks, though it appears to be a recorded message, for trusted friends only. A dead man’s switch.

The message reveals the location of a secret lair near the Verdant Spire, the damn tower we had first appeared in, guarded by a stone giant. The hidden home holds “memory orbs” we can use to gain insight into what happened to this plane, and how we can fix the invasion of demons and angels.

Before we can process all this, another image appears. This one we’ve seen before. Irathon, the leader of the demonic army. My hands fly to my crossbows.

“It is so good to see you again, little ones. And you’ve done so well. After weeks of searching, you lead us so much closer to what we seek. And now our little game is concluded.”

Most one-shot adventures center around a single dungeon crawl. Lake of Secrets is no exception, but its emphasis on story-telling, role-playing, and exploration sets it apart from most D&D one-shot adventures.
