Although it sounds like the name of a cheesy porno, “The Bone Dancer,” is the second one-shot adventure in Christian Eichhorn’s Waterdeep Shadow Heist series. The PCs are sent to recover incriminating letters from a traveling nobleman at an inn. The twist is that he’s much more than he seems.

If you’ve read or watched my review of last year’s Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, you know that one of my complaints was there was no actual bloody heist in the campaign! DMs Guild veteran Christian Eichhorn has designed a series of heists that take place around Waterdeep to help fill this void.

The first in the Waterdeep Shadow Heist series is “The Great Wyrm Theft,” set at a noble’s mansion during a big dinner party.
