Oh No, Toads! - notes for a OSR adventure

Aug 21, 2020

Quickly sharing how I sketch out a short OSR adventure (Old School Essentials).

It’s a simple streamlined affair that I ran with my son. About a sentient Giant Toad king who is trying to establish dominance over a local lake and thereby disrupting the fish trade.

The main idea here, that I’d like to expand one day, is a Dungeon cut out of thick reeds. This could be expanded with many interesting traps and lurking dangers. A maze would also be fun. However for this one short session I just made it a two room hideout for the Toad King.

Here are my (perhaps unreadable) scribbles. Maybe I’ll do a proper write up off it one day.
