You are a Bard, singing epic tales of adventure as you find yourself thrust into saving the Multiverse from the Prince of Undeath, Orcus! Summon your musical avatar and battle against your foes as you play through this epic adventure incorporating new Rock-off mechanics for bards and thematically built around heavy metal rock music!

Experience this epic adventure built entirely around the Bard class, inspired by the music of heavy metal rock bands such as Tenacious D and others. The entire adventure is beautifully illustrated by Brian Patterson with some of his best work to date featured in this adventure!

Sit down with a friend and play a 6th-level Bard on a quest to save the Multiverse from Orcus. Visit the Witchlight Carnival and compete in a Rock-off against Warduke himself! Travel to Avernus and battle devils, lemures, and Tiamat! Confront Orcus and meet Asmodeus as you take on your final challenge. Can you save the Multiverse? 

Musical scores are included throughout the adventure and linked to Spotify to allow Dungeon Master’s single-click access to music that creates a living atmosphere specifically curated around heavy metal rock scores from the ages.

Inside this product, you'll find newly designed Bard mechanics to conduct Rock-offs and summon a musical avatar for your Bard. Additionally, you'll find gorgeous battlemaps by Czepeku!

I hope you enjoy this truly one-of-a-kind adventure. Please take a moment to rate, review, and share this product; if it does well I plan on making follow-on duet adventures.

Hi, I loved the adventure idea, really cool! The art, maps, theme and music cues are so nice and really make me want to run this adventure, but I have to say it is quite confusing, or maybe, lacking information would be more precise, in the combat department. I don't really understand how the rock-offs should be played?
From what I can get (sorry if I missed something), the magical avatar fight each other and summoners can't target each other. But what about the myriad of AOE effects and damages? You should dealt the damage and effects? You should put the tokens of each summoner on the field but they should not interact with each other in combat at all? What about ties when both avatars reach 0 at the same time?

I would really like the rock-off to be more detailed rules, it feels like more a idea that a actual mechanic to be implemented. Especially in the climax to face of Orcus, the most important rock-off, I didnt get how to run it at all. Should I also...See more

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.
