When I see a one-shot adventure, I expect one of two things: a self-contained side trek that can easily be dropped into my ongoing campaign, or a simple but fun one-off for new or side PCs to tackle in between our main campaign.

With an ambitious arcane-punk city setting, “The Wizard’s Egg” tends more toward the latter. There’s a bit too much lore and world-building involved in a one-shot but the heist is effective and the ovoid laboratory is a memorable and neatly designed dungeon to tackle for Tier 1 PCs.

Special One-Shot Halloween D&D Session Tonight

Since we began doing weekly D&D sessions over two years ago, I’ve always wanted to do a special Halloween ‘episode.’ As the regular DM it was always too much for me to prepare on top of the regular campaign.

Now, however, I’m currently a player in our “Storm King’s Thunder” campaign, giving me the perfect excuse to temporarily don my DM hat once more and invite my group for a spooky, haunted evening of thrills and scares.

Our Halloween one-shot session will take place tonight, Monday October 30, beginning at 7pm Pacific/10 pm Eastern, streaming on my YouTube channel.

I’ll be adapting the one-shot adventure “The Haunt” from the DMs Guild. I’ve custom built the map in Roll20 and made several changes to downscale the 4th/5h level adventure for our 3rd level party, while keeping it scary as hell. We’ll be bringing in characters from previous one-shot adventures, and we’ll have at least one new character as well.

I think of this group as The Defenders of our D&D Cinematic Universe. They take care of the street-level threats while the big Avengers team tackles the world-threatening Giant uprising. Best of all Рthis one-shot will in no way interrupt our regular weekly adventures with the A-team.

Tune in tonight for extra bonus D&D goodness!
