This is my fifth one page solo rpg that I’ve created, and I’ve finally let my love of D&D fuel me for a story.
The Cave Outside Heltrap is a Fantasy rpg where you are an adventurer tasked with clearing a cave of a monster, so you spend your time sidequesting around the problem in the hopes you’ll figure it out.
I was in full on The Witcher mode in my head with this one, and it all just reminded me of why I love playing D&D with mates [and kids at school] – you can get pretty weird with it.
Some of the prompts on the d20 table are gnarly fun – swamp hag chanting and werewolf curses and bags of weird coins and other wild adventures just waiting to be explored.
You can go download it now, and get it for free. Or you can throw a coin into the well, if it pleases you. I don’t mind any which way, I just like knowing these are being used and enjoyed.
This is my fifth solo creative writing rpg – you can view my whole library of them here! [also free].
This is a real side-side-hustle – but every hustle of mine revolves around some form of creativity, so I feel lucky to get the time and the energy to put into stuff like this. It’s truly manna for the soul. Hope you dig it half as much, too.
