I had the privilege of seeing The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway over twenty years ago, and it was a transformative experience, with music that I still hum and sing to this day. The Phantom of Music: An Adventure of Love and Death  adapts the beloved musical into a D&D mystery-adventure for 4th level.

Judging The Feather of Aka’Ayah by the shadowy visage of a certain infamous horror villain on the cover may lead you to believe you’ve stumbled on a D&D adventure ripped from A Nightmare on Elm Street.

While the evil nightmare deity Phobetor is certainly based on Freddy, this one-shot for level five PCs is a wholly original adventure into a towering prison complex located in the Dreamscape.

Wizards of the Coast describes Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden as a survival-horror adventure, though horror elements are sporadic at best. The eternal winter the party endures could be tuned to create a more horrific atmosphere. Coldblood attempts to expand on these themes with new rules and undead statblocks.

Holiday-themed adventures tend to go hard on the holidays, injecting theme as much as possible. The Oni That Ruined Jinglemas is more of a traditional dungeon crawl, that just so happens to take place in a toy-shipping warehouse.

A Christmas Carol is one of the most well-known stories in English literature, and could make for a memorable little D&D adventure. A Caravance Carol sticks too literally to the original story, however, lacking a compelling D&D twist that elevates it beyond acting out the script.

We’ve had well over a dozen official 5e campaign books, supplements, and sourcebooks, and it can be tricky to keep track of it all. The Babbling Wizard’s Guide to Reality combines several books worth of content into updated tables of races, subclasses, magic items, and encounters, with an emphasis on creating dozens of new random encounter tables.

Despite being based on Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, Baldur’s Gate 3 makes a number of changes, including adding weapon-specific abilities to each kind of weapon. The Pillars of Eternity series also has different modal stances that could be turned on depending on the weapon you were wielding.

Weapon Perks brings these video game concepts back into D&D, with new abilities for each of the 30+ ranged and melee weapons found in the Player’s Handbook.
