A Day Out at the Executions (5e)
A 5e Compatible Eventure by Creighton Broadhurst
Every month, the normal business of the Low Market is put aside. On this day, Languard executes those guilty of a wide range of crimes. Justice is brutal and final in Ashlar. The populace view execution day as a public holiday and hundreds converge on Low Market to witness the prisoners’ final moments—pedlars sell their wares, beggars beg for coin and an almost carnival-like atmosphere fills the air.
This eventure is suitable for any level PCs and can be used with any size group. It has also been designed to be easily adapted to virtually any GM’s campaign.
Four Nights at the Orc’s Head is set in the City of Languard but is easily adaptable to almost any fantasy city.
What’s an Eventure?
An eventure is akin to a normal adventure, but does not (normally) feature violence or physical challenges. Instead, an eventure focuses on the use of social skills and role-play to resolve the challenges, or events, therein. Most eventures take places in a settlement or on the road. Few occur in traditional adventure locales such as dungeons, ruined castles and so on.
Eventures are an excellent change of pace and can be used as filler between adventures or as situations in which PCs who have invested in social skills can shine. They are also perfect for players who enjoy role-playing.
