The deep dark

Welcome to a weekend creative special. Tonight I want to have a look at a place we don’t normally spend a lot of time in with D&D, well not me anyway. We are looking at the deep dark tonight. A place where nightmares walk at every corner and where those who survive the experience will have tale to tell that will follow them for years.

Tonight I want to go back to something that I have done before but use not often enough. The Journal system. So sit back and let’s crack on with it.

The idea behind tonight is the never ending feeling of being trapped in a cave and spiralling deeper and deeper. Being stalked by creatures that you don’t recognise and searching with desperation for something precious. That feeling of never ending hopelessness but being driven to continue and, maybe a fear of mine, being deep from the surface world and help.

Whether the writer finds Anna, whether she is below or whether the person finding these letters ever finds more doesn’t matter. What does matter is the feeling that it gives the players and what they hope to find below.

Thanks for joining me tonight. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the end of week write-up and, as always, don’t forget to roll with advantage,
