Dungeon Pre-requisites

  • Roleplay your PC having a dream about a bipedal badger statue summoning you to it in a mountain meadow
  • Successfully complete an easy social/investigation skill challenge to hear rumor of this shrine
  • Successfully complete a moderate tracking skill challenge to know how to get there; each failure adds 12 hours to your journey
  • For every 24 hours you are traveling to the Badger Shrine (minimum of 24 hours), you must make 6d100 rolls (4 during the day, 2 at night)
  • For every roll of 25 or below, you have a random wilderness encounter !table wilderness
   

Dungeon Rewards

  This dungeon is under no one's jurisdiction. You receive two minor potions determined by the reviewing DM upon clearing this dungeon.   At the completion of the dungeon (all encounters complete), a DM will roll two Treasure Hoards for you and your name will be added to the Completionist List. This will count as two of your seven Tier I treasure hoards. You will not be able to benefit from this dungeon on this character again (you may continue to gather Abyss Flowers or tackle the special encounters, however).   There is a hidden chest in this dungeon. You must beat the listed DC with either a perception or investigation check. Failure the first time means you do not find it. If you wish to continue to seek for it, you must complete any combination of four hard skill challenges or combat encounters to try again.  

Dungeon Icons & Map Link

  Throughout the dungeon, you will stumble across icons. Tall grasses offer places to hide. Stones and brown ground are difficult terrain (if any part of a stone is touching the square, it is difficult terrain).   You must first add a token to initiative before you can assign the map to it.  
!i add 50 dm -p 100
 
Then run the following:
!i add 50 Rune -pn9
  Map Commmand:  
!map -bg https://i.ibb.co/vxXYdvL/badgershrine.png -options c5 -mapsize 31x31 -fow u1:z6 -view u1:z6
 
Then run the following:
!map -under circle,10,c,n9 -t Rune
  You can see the entire map view by running !view reset and focus in on an area by running !view x#:y#.   You can expand your fog of war by running !map -fow x#:y#. For both of these, x is the top left corner of the area you want to view/reveal and y is the bottom right corner.  

Long Resting

  In order to long rest, you must follow the requirements listed on the Shrine of the Last Badger's page.    

Wandering Monsters

When you enter a room, these monsters may also be there. If the room is empty, there's a 50% chance the wandering monsters are present. If the room already contains a monster, there's a 10% chance the monsters are present.   As this dungeon is built for anyone between level 1 and level 4, you must use the !rEncounter command to determine what you face. You will choose monsters based off the solo encounter list.   These encounters show up in the following order; once they are defeated, they cannot bother you again.  
  1. Wandering Medium Encounter 1
  2. Wandering Easy Encounter 2
  3. Wandering Hard Encounter 3
  4. Wandering Hard Encounter 4
  5. Wandering Hard Encounter 5
  6. Wandering Hard Encounter 6

Room 5

Features: The floor is covered in square tiles, alternating white and black, and the surrounding woods are covered with cobwebs. The path north is the only way out.
Monster: Boss Encounter

Boss Encounter: Sseskrit the Venomous. Sseskrit is "one" creature that you fight in one deadly encounter. Sseskrit is a conglomerate of all the creatures that compose a deadly encounter for your character (if !rEncounter deadly yields more than one monster). So if a deadly encounter for me was 2 CR 1/2, Sseskrit would be composed of two black bears (damage type changed to piercing and an additional 1d4 poison damage, DC 10 constitution saving throw to take half damage). As you kill these "parts" of Sseskrit, that monster contribution will no longer apply to the encounter, thus weakening Sseskrit as his parts "die."   Hidden Treasure: Hidden (DC 20 to find) Locked Iron Chest (DC 20 to unlock, DC 30 to break; 60 hp)
