My last foray into epic levels in D&D (20+) was nearly twenty years ago during Neverwinter Nights‘ second expansion, Hoards of the Underdark, which included fighting an entire dungeon full of beholders and taking on Mephistopheles himself. Legendary Adventures: Epic Play for Fifth Edition is an upcoming supplement that adds epic levels, and equally epic monsters, to D&D Fifth Edition.

WARNING: Massive spoilers for Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden!

There’s a lot I love about Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. I chose it as our next live streamed campaign, after all (coming in April). Yet it’s also an adventure that needs a lot of work, and one of those areas is in the final chapter, Doom of Ythryn.

The Ythryn Expanded Towers of Magic Bundle effectively fixes all eight arcane towers that parties will need to visit, expanding, replacing, and enhancing each tower to create far more memorable locations.

Anthologies tend to feature 10+ adventures with a common theme. With three mini-adventures for levels 1-3, Twilight at Eventide has a smaller scope, but no less valuable, as players help the townsfolk of Eventide with some nasty threats from the Feywild.

Known for its powerful protective wards and neutral  source of knowledge, Candlekeep tends to be relatively free of drama and excitement. But where’s the fun in that? Encounters in Candlekeep provides 20 different events to spice up your party’s next journey to the legendary library.

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.

Santa’s gone rogue! Elves are missing, the city center has been burned to the ground, and folks swear they saw a red figure prowling the rooftops. It’s up to the party to hunt him down and save the Midwinter Festival in Everyone’s Been Naughty, a delightfully twisted take on a holiday adventure.
