Cover of Ratcatchers


Something sinister is brewing in the Emerald forest!
It starts off simple, as they do. A group of fresh-faced adventurers is tasked with clearing out rats in the tavern cellar. What they find down there is something more than they bargained for. Now, they have to make a perilous journey across an uncharted forest to face off against an unknown threat (it’s a swarm of BrainiumOGL Rats). The fate of the entire world might be at stake! (or that of a small hamlet, at any rate!)

Ratcatchers is a 4-6 hour setting neutral one-shot adventure for four to five characters of level 1-2. It has been designed keeping in mind players new to the game.

A 25 page full-color and fully illustrated PDF, a printer friendly B&W version, and a tested for screen readers accessible version.
A beginner friendly adventure that hangs a lampshade on RPG tropes, then sets said lampshade on fire.
A template to convert any beast into were-rat hybrids. Rat-bunny and rat-pigeon, a.k.a. Trash Gryphons included.
Several colorful battle maps for VTT use.
Terrible rat based puns.

Content Warning: The intended tone of this adventure is a mix of horror and comedy. Where it exactly lies on the spectrum of horror to comedy is up to you, the DM, and your players. There is depiction of body transformation and body horror, parental neglect and tight spaces. Also, there are rats. Lots and lots of rats.
