Beneath the waves of the Conquering Sea, a primordial island rises and with it a new threat from an old enemy. Known as Primalrites, this monstrous race of dinosaurs were long forgotten by the monster hunters of today, but ancient fossils remain. And now, the island shudders once more as they return, seeking revenge against those that drove them to an early extinction.
You are about to embark on a rousing adventure that pits mighty hunters against monstrous dinosaurs on an island not big enough for both. These wildly fantastical hunts are recreated whenever you play the Hunters Mark adventure.
In order to play, you must first be acquainted with the 5e rules. The first major adventure in the Hunters World, Hunters Mark is a 5e adventure for characters of level 1-10. You can start the adventure with 1st level characters of your own creation, or, pick one or more from the cast of non-player characters. Either way, the characters should reach at least 10th level by the adventure’s conclusion.
USING THIS BOOK
The adventure here builds on the 5e foundation, exploring how characters are monster hunters, going after dangerous, often deadly prey. Think of this book as an adventure with a focus on epic boss battles and we hope it will provide you new ways to enjoy the game.
Chapter 1 provides guidance on running this adventure. Chapter 2 covers the vast landscapes of the Sunken Island, from treacherous shores and desolate volcanic hearts, to lush valleys and shadowy sprawls. Chapter 3 offers optional rules for the GM that provides new resources for running the game and streamlining hunts, all of it building on the core 5e rules.
Appendix A is a toolkit for players using monster spoils to make gear, similar to crafting systems used in video games, and Appendix B contains a gallery of hunters for the GM to quickly generate downtime activities and side quests for the campaign. Appendix C presents a step-by-step guide for players to create and use custom pets on monster hunts.
My name is Gary. I've spent over 18 months perfecting this 5e adventure and would like to share it with you at your game table. This is a love-letter to games like the Witcher, Dark Souls and Monster Hunter.
