The Howling Caverns (5e)

A horror fantasy adventure for 3-5 1st level characters

The hunched beast prowls the forest, sniffing at the still air. The roiling sky flashes and thunder breaks the silence. The time is near and the beast senses it. The monstrous form bounds toward the darkened village, a demonic howl in its throat…

Shipwrecked on a perilous shore, a group of adventurers stumble into a blighted land and come face to face with a great black beast with a terrible curse.

Can they unravel the mystery and solve the Barghest’s curse before it’s too late?
