Didn’t Anyone Tell You to Stay Out of Dark Alleys at Night?
A one-page encounter for D&D 5e.
In a dark alleyway late at night, something is very wrong. That man… is he biting that person? No, it must be an animal. That’s why you can hear growling. Right? But it’s so dark. You’d have to step closer to see…
Didn’t Anyone Tell You to Stay Out of Dark Alleys at Night? is a one-page horror-themed encounter for level 1 characters. It includes everything a DM needs to run the encounter, including read-aloud text and a new monster (with full statblock) for characters to contend with. It can serve as the starting hook for a new campaign, or easily dropped into an existing campaign as a random encounter.
This encounter can be found in the Collective Encounters Vol. VI anthology, published by Storytelling Collective on the Dungeon Master’s Guild.
