About the Author: My first memory of Dungeons & Dragons is picking up my brother's 2nd edition Monstrous Manual and looking at the pictures before I could read. I have been playing roleplaying games for over 13 years and am eager to share my adventures with you.

My DMing style seeks to provide real (often deadly) challenges for players. I feel this makes an adventure truly rewarding and leaves your players feeling like heroes. If we, as DMs, can achieve that then we have "won" Dungeons & Dragons. This adventure is hard. Your players will be challenged. At the end of the day, they will remember that time they just barely saved the village of Farleigh's Well.

This looks great. I can't wait to run this as a way to get my PCs into a world of fey and fairy tales set in a forest. Any thoughts on how I might be able to run do this without the option of leaving the Feywild?

Thanks for your interest!

There's nothing in the adventure that forces the characters back into the Material Plane. They could simply elect to stay, as the fey crossing they likely use to enter stays open for a significant period of time.

Hey Jonathon! Thanks for your interest in the adventure.

You could run this in as little as 4 or 5 hours or as long as 8 (with a few good session break points along the way). The second part of the adventure has a lot of optional encounters that you can use as you see fit, adjusting the overall playtime.

Hope this helps!

I ran the first few episodes in a single session, leaving the final showdown for the next time we play.

Looking forward to running this adventure as a hook to enter the Feywild. One question I had is what evidence there is that Erasus "forces the locals to drink and dance until they die of exhaustion." This gets mentioned in the overview on p. 4 but never comes up again. While outside the portal characters can see the revelers drinking and singing and then crossing into the mist, there's no evidence of the revelers mentioned in the House of the Winsome Rose, nor any mention of dead bodies, scenes of revelers dancing themselves to death, etc. Did you have in mind that the characters would witness this first-hand, or does it all take place "off-stage"? As is, I'm unsure what harm Erasus is doing to the material plane that he should feel bad about, besides getting people to party and be hungover the next day and in effect shutting down the business of Farleigh's Well.

Hey Chris!

First, thank you for picking up the adventure and supporting community creators. It really means a lot to us.

You're right that this could have been made more clear. My intent was that Erasus is still early in this plan, so there hasn't been things like an entire revelry troupe dying yet. He is also reluctant in the whole thing, so perhaps he is drawing out the actual "dirty work" as long as he can; he is not being directly controlled by Lady Rimeheart, but rather manipulated.

The lost reveler in the woods is another foreshadowing episode. He was carelessly left there by his companions and would have surely died if not for the characters. This combined with the distress in Farleigh's Well is meant to paint, if perhaps faintly, a picture of impending serious trouble.

Of course, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to change the story to fit the tone of your game. You could certainly add a dozen or so missing villagers, who are then found dead...See more

Thanks for your quick and friendly response! I'm playing with my 11-year-old daughter, so I don't mind the situation being less dire at the moment. Am I right, though, in assuming that once revelers pass through the portal, they're stuck in the Feywild? So even without their dying, there's a steady trickle of people disappearing from an already pretty small village.

Christopher W July 09, 2019 3:46 pm UTC
Yep, that's the intent. Perhaps only a few each night actually cross over to the Feywild. Their comrades, in their inebriated state, probably don't even notice.

The last update is "Lite v3" or "TheMidnightRevelry-01.pdf"?
Great adventure, I hope to run it the next week :D

Hey Aldo! Firstly, thanks so much for your support, it really means a lot.

Those names should have been changed on the site's back end, but looks like they didn't take. The most up-to-date file is "TheMidnightRevelry-01." Sorry for the confusion!

I hope you and your table have fun with the adventure. If you feel so compelled, stop back in and let me know how it went.

Absolutely fantastic! I ran it (with a few tweaks to strengthen the bad guys and adjust it to my setting) as u long (5 1/2 hour) adventure for my long time online player group. They were a party of five, all sixth level, and it was a blast!

I could easily have stretched it out over two sessions, and the difficulty level wasn't too difficult to adjust (like modifying the Phase Spider to a larger version with a couple of Legendary actions).

Kudos to Christopher!

After I read the sample I was hooked, the pixies playing tricks got me. But here are a list of things that confuse me after reading it carefully;

"Unseelie" vs "Seelie" in the story on page 1 - ok I was able to web search these.

The names "Toril" and "House of Revels" are mentioned first each with no explanation of what they are.

What if the characters fail the DC 15 Arcana check at the temple, how will they ever know how to activate the portal? That would be some dead end... I ensured Maralenna's dialogue left the players with the impression they are to report back with what they find - that way she can give them a hint. Then it's a bonus if they pass through first time.

Clint H October 11, 2018 5:09 am UTC
Ok I'm fairly new - I suppose searching these new terms is expected. Eg. Toril :) I guess "The House of Revels" is just the name and no more? Perhaps it refers to the temple.

I still think care needs to be taken with leaving the players stranded at the site of the gate, if they can't work out the drinking is what does it.

Running this as an alternate DM for my group so our main DM can take a break once in a while, and it's fantastic so far--thank you for creating it! One thing I want to mention: I noticed in Appendix A that Erasus' "Cast a Cantrip" Legendary Action actually refers to Lady Rimehart, and not to Erasus. I'm sure it was just an overlooked correction on a copy/paste, but figured I would point it out so that you could polish it if you wanted to. Thanks again!

Gah! Great catch! I am planning a larger update to this adventure soon, and will add this to the to-do list.

Thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in this adventure! I am currently updating the PDF using Homebrewery for a more classic D&D look. I will update this product page when the new PDF is available.

Hey there!
Just downloaded this and looked it over (looks really great!)
I've just started writing some modules for the dmsguild, and was curious what formatting you use, and how you designed the WOTC esc cover?
Thanks again for the module, can't wait to run it!

Christopher W August 28, 2018 6:08 pm UTC
Thank you so much for your support, Julian!

The Midnight Revelry used GM Binder (, a free to use platform that uses HTML, CSS, and Markdown to create a variety of layouts. The cover was designed using their cover tool as well. It isn't necessarily as powerful or limitless as Adobe InDesign or similar applications, but if you have a background in web design it is very easy to pick up.

I look forward to reading your adventures soon! Please be sure to let me know when they release.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
