The Great Trial: Christmas


The Great Trial: Christmas is a one-page adventure for 4 2nd-level characters. It consists of a short hexcrawl designed specifically to challenge novice adventures. It’s focused on all pillars of D&D. 

The Great Trial

I released the first module back in February and in September, I released its sequel: The Great Trial Frostbite
These adventures are meant to test the players and their characters and take them to the edge of their skills.

Aenor Greenwith, a powerful elven mage started to build the first Trial after realizing that he hadn’t left his mark in this world. So he wanted to enter the hall of legends besides Acererak and Halaster. He uses more experienced adventurers, often capturing them, to test the Trials for him. 

This time, he wanted something for beginners, and heard about the horrors of a place called Ravenloft. So he researched a way to make his Trial happen there. He sent the people of a hamlet called Sargor, located in the setting of your preference and sent the whole place to a tiny plane between the borders of the Ravenloft’s Domains of Dread.
