Escape From A Devouring Dream: 5e One Shot Adventure


Bob World Builder Presents

Escape From A Devouring Dream

A lonely lighthouse has recently become surrounded by dark rumors of eerie sightings and a missing keeper. In truth, the keeper has died of a broken heart, and their web of love and loss links the now abandoned lighthouse to a shadowy plane where a nightmarish predator torments the spirit of the lovelorn keeper. It’s up to your heroes and a helpful faerie to reunite the long-estranged lovers and cast out the darkness.

This gothic 5e adventure is designed for one session of low-level play in any fantasy setting.

Written by ENNIE-nominated writer and Emmy-nominated video editor, Steven Pankotai! He has produced many best-selling DMs Guild titles like the Player Primer: Icewind Dale and Archvillain Archive. This adventure includes the following.

  • Quest summary for easy prep
  • Roleplay notes for the detailed NPC: Sam Colborn the Lighthouse Keeper
  • Combat notes for the new monster: Dream Eater
  • Original magic item: Faerie Torch
  • Roleplay-focused skill challenges!
  • Simple map for the main encounter
  • Multiple versions of the detailed, VTT-ready map
  • 3 high-res PDF cards of the magic item, NPC, and monster
  • 2 VTT tokens of the NPC and monster
Content Warning: Death, Depression; If you or any of your players find these themes distressing, please consider playing a different Bob World Builder adventure.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
