Already keen? Check out the full range of out-of-the-box Epic Encounters on our webstore now!
If you haven’t got on the Epic Encounters train yet, what’re you waiting for?
These RPG sets are a bit like a meal kit… But instead of tasty food, you get something much more mouth-watering: an awesome roleplaying adventure!
We provide all the ingredients: up to 20 detailed minis (or a single, massive one in the boss boxes!), an adventure book, a double-sided game mat, and tips and tricks for building excitement and suspense. All you need is pots and pans (well, erm, a 5e rulebook) and a light seasoning of imagination!
These sets can be run as thrilling one-shot adventures (confronting a fearsome Red Dragon or a motley crew of Kobolds, respectively). Or you can put these compatible boss and warband boxes together for a cinematic adventure of Epic proportions!
Oh, and that leads us nicely onto this cool news:
Good Time Society plays Epic Encounters!
To give you an idea of how awesome these adventures are, we’ve partnered with professional roleplayers Good Time Society with Becca Scott!
Tune in every Wednesday at 12pm PST to watch an awesome Epic Encounters campaign (based around the Lair of the Red Dragon and Shrine of the Kobold Queen sets) unfold over on their Twitch.
If you’re not yet convinced about how good these sets are (and they really are fantastic – you don’t need to take our word for it!), or if you need inspiration for your campaigns, make sure to check them out!
The first couple of episodes have already aired, but if you missed them, you can catch up on their madcap adventures on YouTube… Phew!
Here’s the first episode for your viewing pleasure:
Discover unforgettable tavern-based campaigns with Local Legends
“Wait, what’s The Nodding Dragon? That sounds cool!”
You’re absolutely right it does.
We’ve actually just run a Kickstarter campaign for our tavern-based spinoff to Epic Encounters, called Local Legends! The Nodding Dragon is one of 10 5e-compatible taverns from that set.
But don’t worry – although the Kickstarter campaign has finished, you can still late pledge for a limited time to get your hands on ALL the amazing rewards from the campaign, including several Kickstarter-exclusive boss minis!
Meet the cast for this Epic Encounters mini-series!
