Whispering Worms-A Bug Themed One Shot

Suggested Price $1.00

The small forest town of Nolidae uses insects in its daily life and toil. The town leader has recently noticed people going missing. They believe it is the work of a nearby wizard, Odonata, needing experimentation subjects as he is said to possess a strong magical artifact. Only the party can determine who is really the culprit.

In this adventure lies the town of Nolidae, which has plenty for the party to explore ranging from a tavern to a garden club. This adventure also has a small tower dungeon with puzzles and combat alike, along with an optional ending. Also included is one custom magic item of great insect power.

A One-Shot Adventure

Whispering Worms is an original, one-shot adventure in the Dungeons & Dragons universe, ideally the Forgotten Realms. It is meant for use with D&D’s fifth edition rules but can be swapped easily if needed. It can be run with any number of players of 3rd to 14th level. As a one-shot, it is semi-short and will only last a few hours. DM's can run this as a simple one-shot, in combination with other one-shots, or as a bigger part of a campaign. There are elements of horror and insects throughout the adventure.

Using This Adventure

This one-shot is designed to fit into any forest area in any setting. Many of the details could be easily changed from the plants in the descriptions to the enemies. The stat blocks are designed for higher levels but can be lowered by omitting spells and lowering stats.

Included is the fantasy grounds unity version, a PDF, and a zip of the images/map and magic items. As a little fun-fact the majority of names of places and NPCs are a play on scientific/latin name of various insects!

 Im just a small-time creator writing my weird little inspirations, enjoy! If you notice any errors or typos, please let me know!

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.
