A Map for Every Battle​


Each fight comes with a map specifically designed for the battle's mechanics. These will be each offered as a separate download within your DriveThruRPG library for easy VTT use and so that you can use them for other encounters or campaigns as needed!

57 Stat Blocks of Dangerous Enemies​


Fight massive titans, demon lord ascendants, mechanical hydras, megalodons... the list goes on and on! The more complicated battles include tips and tricks for getting the most out of the stat blocks to help you different combos to surprise your players!

Unique Mechanics​


Without spoiling too much, some battles involve escaping from tables before being able to fight, using harpoon guns and teamwork to load, aim, and shoot, abusing cover rules against enemy ranged attacks, defeating bosses in a certain order to trigger special effects, fighting possessed objects, avoiding knockback abilities by using terrain, defeating pieces of a boss to debuff him as a whole, dealing with hostage-killing devices, destroying lair objects to debuff an enemy, using player-given lair actions to stop giants, and even a dance battle!

Mechanics are explained thoroughly so that the DM can easily convey them to the party in character. We do not keep the obvious to ourselves, and we may repeat ourselves, but by doing so we want everyone to have fun!

20 Magic Item Rewards​


Most battles include one or more magic items that are thematic to the encounter and create memories associated with the battle. For example, a draconic rat companion can join you after completing Rats... In a Basement! And we know players love npc companions! Other items include thematic weapons, armor, and magic devices that can positively affect your campaign going forward.
