Strange Ways Festival

A 5e Tavern Replacement

The Strange Ways Festival is a 5e tavern replacement that is a great way to kick off a new campaign, provide a light reprieve for players between quests, or just bring together some friends to have some table time without the structure of an adventure or campaign. I’ve been using this format for years to provide opportunities to introduce players to the game or introduce disparate groups of friends to each other.

Includes:

  • The Arena (PVP)
  • The Pit (PVE)
  • The Toss (Unique Mini-game)
  • The Dance (Social Skill Challenge)
  • Faire Games (Combat Challenge)
  • Ritual Theatre (Exploration Skill Challenge)
  • Eating/Drinking Contest (Saving Throw Challenge)
  • Fortune Teller (Exploration Encounter)
  • Tattoo Artist (Character Customization)
  • Caricature Artist (Character Exploration)
  • Prize Table with 11 unique and weird Magic Items

Tomb of the Vampire General

Tomb of the Vampire General

Into The Tomb

You step into the dank cave clutching your torch, wishing the light would shine a little brighter or the shadows would retreat more—the water, flowing in the entrance with you, pools on one half of the dig site. The cave stretches on beyond, so you decide to stick to the dry side and keep moving. Did you slip? No, something pulled you, oh saints! A group of decrepit vampires emerges from the icy depths and attack. Outnumbered, you survey the melee to find your ally has fallen. They are dragging her further into the cave! After them!
