A thieves' guild has caught word of this flower's existence and has kidnapped all of your party members except yourself.

Cave of Wonders - One-Minute One-Shot #8
The party was tasked by an old wizard-type to retrieve a golden lamp at the center of a cave system; however, there is only one rule... DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING BUT THE LAMP. As the party descends deeper into the cave, all goes well until the party finds a giant chamber filled with treasures beyond their wildest dreams. Keeping to the task, the party finds the lamps; however, just before reaching it, the Rogue touches a priceless gem causing the cave to begin collapsing. The chamber doors close, while sand pours out of several small holes above, quickly filling this closed-off chamber. With only moments to react, what would you do?

Cart Breaker - One-Minute One-Shot #7
Tasked with transporting a local lord's comatose son to a distant wizarding school, your party sets up camp off the road in a small clearing on the night of the 4th day of travel. The party pulls straws for who will keep watch and, naturally, the Rogue drew the short straw. The night continues as the Rogue gets too comfortable, falling asleep at their post, which allows a group of Wood Elves the perfect opportunity to grab your party's loose belongings, horses, and, worst of all, the cart where the body of the comatose son was placed. As the group of Wood Elf Bandits begins riding away with your gear and horses, what would you do to stop them?

Any Last Wishes? - One-Minute One-Shot #6
The final battle against the god of secrets and lies, Vecna, has gone terribly wrong. All members of your party lay slain on the ground except for one. Your partner. The Cleric of the group. However, Finger of  Death will soon be cast on them. Just before this happens, it comes to your turn in the initiative. As the party's Wizard, you held onto your  last spell... Wish.   In this moment, what would you wish for? To turn back time? To wish that  Vecna never existed? To wish that your party had stayed behind rather than come to a slaughter? So many possibilities...    Find out what we did in the re-release of our podcast segment  "One-Minute One-Shot"!   Follow Talking XP on our social media to keep up to date for news and updates on our content!
