In The Axe of Dreams, a level-0 Shadowdark gauntlet, a large percentage of the population of Spearhome has experienced strange dreams where they wield a magical axe. With this arcane artifact, their dreams and aspirations come to fruition in the land of dreams. Those who experienced the most vivid oneiric visions also feel an unavoidable urge to visit a narrow cavern near town. A small expedition sets out to visit the place.

When the characters arrive, they find an obsidian gate that had always barred passage now open. It leads them to a bygone crypt where a mighty hero of the past was interred hundreds of years ago. The trespassing peasants must make use of their creativity and resourcefulness to overcome the deathly challenges in the dungeon. In the end, only one of them shall reach the legendary axe and become its new master. They shall soon find it doesn’t come without cost.

This gauntlet adventure leads the lowly peasants into a dangerous crypt, pits them against undead forces from the past, and allows them to retrieve a mighty artifact that shall change their lives forever. They shall soon become the writers of history in the modern world.

This adventure has been designed for Shadowdark RPG through their 3rd party license. The system is meant to be accessible to OSR players and modern players alike. Adapting the material to 5e or other systems should not be difficult.
