"... From the mind of a 12 year old" 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
My son has ran his first game for his friends. He wanted to post the story and pics here. (How cool is it that he let dad play?)

Background: The Hourglass of time has been stolen. If the sand stops flowing all time stops. The evil cleric has stolen it for his god who is the god of destruction. That god wants to destroy time.

Story: Evil cleric finds artifact and escapes into a forest. PCs follow cleric and his group of "bad" guys. The evil cleric enters into a cavern. The PCs follow.

A ward is "tripped" as the PCs enter into the cave. 3 loud bells are heard. The "bad guys" run.

Each level the party is ambushed by some creature or underlings of the cleric.

Level 1: Cave entrance with ladder down to 2nd level. 2 levels combined equals 4 goblins and one dead PC.



and



Beyond level 2 we decend to an underground swamp is how it was described to me. (Hmmmm.... Will we see black dragons later. Ooops that is Player Knowledge)



This is some sort of make shift base. Following the "bad guys" leaves us to deal with henchmen on every platform.



Another angle to show the platforms littered with bones of long dead players.



Moving along we have more places where we get ambushed and attacked.



The final showdown



The cleric gets away escaping through a narrow tunnel into a constructed tunnel.

Next week we go into the tunnel. What will we find? Will we live?



Things to note. Mushrooms are real spore releasing deathcaps. We have 100 rounds says the ranger who rolled a 2 and added his 2 on knowledge nature, before they explode making this tunnel toxic for weeks. Only 5 days of rations.

I will post more for him once we go through his dungeon of a long forgotten castle that crumbled hundreds of years ago.

Very cool! My ten year old son has designed several adventures but we have yet to play them. Our 11th level characters wouldn't last 10 minutes with the monsters he wants to throw at us.

Nam, I love it! Congrats to your son for making such a fun set up and adventure. Definitely getting an 80's cartoon vibe here that simply rocks. I really look forward to seeing what he comes up with for the next adventure. Thank you for sharing.

Very cool and well executed setup your son has made Shadox! You must be a proud dad :D
I would be, my three year old son already loves playing with my prepainted D&D miniatures, they get some rough love from his own dinosaurs and a plastic toy hydra :)

I have to questions regarding items: 1) Those red mushroom with white dots, where can you get them? 2) The bridges/platforms, where can you get those?

Thank you

Keep us updated when the adventures continues through the tunnel! :)

Shadox, Nice setup!

LordofMuck,

The mushrooms are pre-painted D&D Minis: Deathcap from DemonWeb. Their value is quite high on eBay since they are great for mushroom decors. If you are a competent painter, buy the mushrooms from keeblerorc or Grendel!





The platforms are scenery from the Hobbit line of GW products: link.

Awesome! I love that "Goblin city" piece, and it looks fantastic in the water like that. That's a really great layout!

That's awesome. One of my players has a son around age 5 and he helps me DM every now and then (I let him place monsters, roll for me, etc). I would be lucky indeed if my son grew up to love this hobby as much as I do.
