Colosseum of Carnage

Author: MonkeyDM

Addon: Content which can be added into any game - new or existing!

Price: $6.99

Enter the Arena and Fight for your Life and Freedom!

Colosseum of Carnage is a Fifth Edition adventure optimized for three to six characters of 10th level. Full of ruthless monsters, devil masterminds, and unique encounters, this adventure is perfect if your table wants to test their grit in the crucible of the arena.

This is a unique adventure, containing plot twists and dangerous encounters to surprise your players. Full of ancient Rome vibes, with new monsters specifically created for the joy/misery of your players, this one-shot contains all the things you'd expect to find from a colosseum fight and more. This adventure is for level 10 adventurers ideally, and can be used perfectly to take a break from your main campaign, or as side quest to an existing world, or to run if your players find themselves in a blood-thirsty mood.

The best characteristic of Colosseum of Carnage is its modularity. It can be plugged in anywhere, the villain can be chosen from either a few preset variants or a personal creation, the enemies can be exchanged, and the locations can be rearranged. Feel free to play around with the Colosseum of Carnage as you wish and make it fit your group. As a suggestion, since this adventure starts with the player waking up in a cell owned by compelling individuals, feel free to have this adventure by a return session after a TPK, time skip, or other such events. If you are playing with the Domains of Dread, the Colosseum of Carnage can even be such a domain, with its dreadlord being a reincarnating master of ceremonies.


No one can fully explain the true nature of the Colosseum of Carnage. This colosseum, lost within time and space, drifts on an island filled with lost souls, all of them watching from the rafters. Most cannot even remember how they arrived or for how long they’ve been watching the fights. Some might’ve been here their entire lives, watching as the Colosseum changes owners and competitors.
At its core, the colosseum is at the barrier between realms, serving as an unending cycle of dreadful combat. Every few years or so, the evil eldritch force that controls it changes its owner to one even more brutal. And, every now and then, particularly unlucky individuals or adventurers whose souls have been thrown into the aether of existence - either by death or ritualistic means - have to fight for the lifeless crowds.
At any particular point in time, any creature can control the colosseum, provided it enjoys fighting enough to attract the attention of the eldritch being that is the colosseum.
