2 Minute Read
Jun 23 2020

For a limited time, Kobold Press’ Prepared 2, a collection of another dozen one-shot 5E adventures is free. Read on to see how you can get your copy.

If you are living in the time of quarantine, you probably know how much of a boon it is to have some new content, ready to go. Be it a new show that you actually like, a new recipe you can actually bake, or, as we’re getting to today, a new adventure you can actually just run. There’s a kind of comfort in finding something that’s prepared and ready to run. And, as part of Kobold Press’ Safer at Home program, they’re delivering some of the ultimate comfort: a brand new set of a dozen one-shot adventures.

We’ve featured the first volume of Prepared here on the site before, so we can say with some surety, these adventures are a ton of fun. They’re quick and easy to play, but don’t let that give you the wrong impression. These are some imaginative adventures, with all sorts of interesting twists and turns. Watch what happens when a cruise goes awry, or when you have to put on a play.

You can get all 12 of these adventures for free with a code grabbed from Kobold Press–in order to get it, you’ll have to sign up for their newsletter, which you can do right here.
