A meteorite has crashed into the countryside, and now vicious enemies prowl the night. Can the characters put a stop to the sinister force that is causing savage animal attacks and a growing list of missing people?
Watchers in the Dark is a cosmic horror one-shot adventure for 4th-level characters. It takes about 3-4 hour to complete and includes:
- A horrifying discovery beneath a meteorite crater
- Three new monsters: two variant ankhegs and an alien being, the mind-shard
- Combat cards for each monster, PC, and special treasure
- Gorgeous, hand-drawn maps by Jake from Beware the Wizard
This adventure doesn't have any pending change requests.
Brandoff has played this adventure and would recommend it.
Played this with just about zero prep. The whole party loved it. The boss fight was impressive, not just a, "Stand there and attack" situation. One bit of advice is to seek out the author's adventure walkthrough on YouTube. During play I was a little confused about an aspect of the meteor (trying not to spoil anything), but the video cleared it up. I'd definitely recommend this module for a fun one-shot, although it ends with several plot-threads you could use to launch further adventures.

12/12 mind controlled commoners recommend this.
This makes an excellent one-shot adventure for any party. After all, who doesn't like mind controlling ALIENS?! (ish)
Like all of Kelsey Dionne's adventures, this is designed to be played with minimal prep while still providing excellent atmosphere and natural pacing to make running it a breeze and is good for a DM/GM of any experience level. The battle maps for this adventure are an awesome addition but for me, the final boss fight really stole the show, as well as acquiring a magic sword gained by defeating the boss. This adventure does an excellent job at setting a creepy vibe and suitably made my party worry about what was watching them in the darkness.
This adventure readily lends itself to quick and painless modification to fit into any campaign or any size party.
Want a creepy feeling adventure where you feel you are being watched? Check. Want that paranoid rogue to feel like that "Aliens!" dude from the Discovery channel? Done. Want an alien vs predator vibe? Just add some Giff
