About this project

What is One Shot Wonders?

One Shot Wonders is a collection of single session d20 based adventures, or one shots, that you can fit literally anywhere in the current on-going campaign you are running. Afraid your party is going to reach the Great Evil before they have leveled up enough? Add some meat to their bones by running one or two of these single session adventures. Written and illustrated by local Chicago gamers, One Shot Wonder looks to relieve much of the stress that comes with GMing.

The adventures will come in two box sets; one for levels 1-6 and one for 7-11, and categorized into three environments (urban, dungeon, and forest). Each of the 15 adventures have been designed to be easily adjusted to your desired challenge rating with no additional work on the GMs part. Each adventure is given a rating based on the amount of combat, role-playing, or skill used. Just select an adventure, pick a level, and play. Inside each box will be an Adventure Codex which holds 15 one shot adventures, an Encounter Index that contains the monster, bosses, and other beasties need for every battle, a set of pre-generated PC's at several different levels, and a bag of miniatures.

With your contribution, we plan to have these two box sets in every game shop in the Chicagoland area and hopefully beyond within a year. All the money will go to paying our amazing artists and writers and to printing. This is our first step in establishing the ground work for future Edgeland Games projects.

We have some stretch goals planned such as additional pre-generated PC's, along with T-shirts, dice, posters, and other cool swag. We will also be publishing several more adventures and other Pregens available for online purchase.

Risks and challenges

We have spoken to several publishers as well as mini producers so we have several outlets for production. We have already started writing and playtesting the adventures around several tables, along with cons like Valorcon and Acadecon. We have tested out formula of this style of campaign creation and have reached out to several experienced gamers and they have all endorsed and supported the project.
