Nightmares in the Puppet Shop is a Fifth Edition adventure for 3 to 7 characters of 3rd level, and is optimized for 5 characters with an average party level (APL) of 3.
A cult is preparing a dark ritual to summon their eldritch masters into the world. One of the town’s guards infiltrated their ranks to learn about the ritual’s location. The characters need to rescue the undercover operative and stop the ritual before it’s too late.
This adventure is structured into two parts: pre-ritual and post-ritual. Pre-ritual, the characters will explore the shop and fight past cultists to get to the room where the ritual is being performed. Post-ritual, the characters must fight their way out of the dungeon past eldritch horrors manifesting in puppets throughout the shop.
A small sect of cultists that call themselves Children of the Voracious Worm have been using a puppet shop as a guise for their unholy activities. They are led by a woman named Nola. After years of preparation, they are on the cusp of creating a portal to another realm, intent on letting aberrant horrors consume the world.
One of the town guards, a tiefling woman named Dancing in the Rain, had a hunch something was amiss and spent some time undercover working at the shop. They discovered the cult’s plans and managed to sneak out a word of warning to the townmaster before being uncovered and captured.
