Horde of the Rat King

A short dungeon crawl adventure for tabletop rpgs for the MS Paint Jam.

The Horde of the Rat King is a short adventure created in an evening. It's mean to be played with any d20 system, but can easily be adapted to any system.

IMO, All the best drawing in MS Paint is done with the mouse. I've gotten decent at doodling with my mouse over the years. I found the secret is embracing the jank of the line, suggesting shapes and silhouettes more than hard outlines.

This adventure has never been playtested, was improvised as I sketched, and is primarily meant to spark the imagination of GM's and players.

Made for the MS PAINT TTRPG JAM
