Five Nights at the Scythe (5e)
A 5e Compatible Eventure by Creighton Broadhurst
Standing on a dingy side street in Low City the Scythe has a reputation as a place for hard drinking and its entertainers. Nights at the Scythe are rarely boring—particularly when the legendary halfling bard, Dricolen Nimblefinger, is playing—but most time-crunched GMs gloss over the time between adventures because there are more important things to prepare. Use this eventure to add flavour and interesting events to your PCs’ next night out in Languard!
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.
Five Nights at the Scythe 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.
