One Thing: The Tower of Jade


"The Tower of Jade" by Andrew and Heleen Durston

One thing I love about this One Page Dungeon is that hidden beneath its colorful design and nonthreatening title, there is some pretty intense survival horror stuff going on. I didn't realize this at first, but by the time I finished reading the adventure, I really wanted to run a group of players as zero level miners through this one. It is definitely fantasy, but this adventure would be at home in a sci fi setting as well.  The fact that the monsters entombed in the jade tower appear human but can shift into were-insects adds to the tension and creepiness factor (for the players).

Get it here.
