A 5th Edition Fantasy Adventure

Get ready for an old school inspired 5e adventure with modern game play, traps, monsters, and a maze that will challenge all players. The friends (or enemies) you make and the encounters you have before the labyrinth will impact how you survive or die in Dawnfell.

An army of minotaurs march across the land bringing death and destruction in their wake. Dawnfell, a once prosperous city has been taken by the minotaurs and construction is well under way to transform the city into the ultimate tribute to their patron, Baphomet.

Will you brave the city of labyrinths, its denizens, and minotaurs to win Baphomet's horn, the one item that can stop this wicked army? Will the NPCs and hirelings you meet grant you a boon or a bane if you choose to take them into Dawnfell? Will you save the people of Dawnfell from their terrible fate?

This 5e labyrinthian adventure is for a party of 4-6 players of levels 3-5 spanning several game sessions. We have created an adventure that introduces your characters to encounters that will challenge them with exploration, combat, and social encounters. Dread Minotaur of Dawnfell includes new maps, magic items, monsters, and art! Our adventures are written in a GM friendly format, and include combat cards, paper miniatures, maps and more. Read the adventure and then run it at-a-glance.
