I was losing my mind refreshing my inbox for freight and shipping updates every hour, so I decided to take a break for a day and write a free D&D adventure to help you bide the time while your decks are in the mail. Pedro Galicia, the DM behind the wonderful TTRPG podcast World Walkers, co-created it with me, and I think it's a really fun little piece. We co-released it under the banner of The Story Engine and my new tabletop shop Nat 21 Workshop.
It's called Krampusnacht, and it plugs into your existing long-running campaign like a holiday special episode. In it, you get to punish your players for all the horrible things they did this year.
Remember when they robbed the shopkeeper over a low-level magic item? Or insta-killed the NPC you spent hours working on? Or burned down that beautiful mountain town before you got to read your painstakingly detailed description?
It's payback time!
Krampusnacht comes with ideas for connecting to the existing threads of your campaign story.
