Epic Encounters

Ghoulish new encounters from Steamforged Games

Steamforged Games are back with two new Epic Encounters, pitting players against some truly ghoulish foes, which will strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest of heroes.

Epic Encounters is made for both new and experienced Dungeons and Dragons players. Each box features an all-in-one boxed encounter that’s 5e compatible and ready to play as part of a new or existing roleplaying campaign.

In Hive of the Ghoul-Kin, players confront a horde of formidable flesh-eating foes.

Ghouls teem in the darkness, stealing up from their subterranean kingdom to filch corpses wherever they can find them. There’s not an undisturbed graveyard to be found on the continent. 

The most wealthy, and most determined not to be molested in their eternal sleep, invest in steel caskets. Even this does not stop the ghouls for long — how could it? Their brood-sire simply breeds a ghoul with claws capable of shearing through steel. If you take the words of a bizarre book seriously, of course. But such a thing would explain much about the ghouls…

Inside the box you get:

  • 15 highly detailed miniatures
  • 5 unique sculpts!
  • Ghoulish adventure book
  • Double-sided game mat
  • Monster stats
  • Tips and tricks for building tension and excitement

Once they’ve tackled the hoard, why not pit the heroes against a new boss box? Barrow of the Corpse Crawler sees you go toe-to-toe with an enormous flesh-eating worm on a gargantuan 100mm base!

There are things in the endless passages beneath the world; things that feast on the dead. Things that carry death with them, spewing foulness in their wake as they drag their vast bulk through an endless darkness. The corpse crawler. An enormous worm, oozing through the illimitable darkness, drawn ineluctably by the scent of the dead. And who knew death had undone so many? 

Little is truly known of the gluttonous worms, for few scholars possess the appetite to descend into the endless network of tunnels to study them…

In this beastly box, you get:

  • 1 gargantuan, highly detailed Corpse Crawler miniature (100mm base, unpainted)
  • Double-sided game mat
  • Adventure book
  • Monster stats
  • Tips and tricks for building tension and excitement

Epic Encounters are a great tool for any DM’s arsenal, with the boxes perfect for both stand-alone adventures and integration into an existing campaign. I’m personally a big fan, having used the Hall of the Orc King set in an Icewind Dale campaign.

Hive of the Ghoul-Kin and Barrow of the Corpse Crawler are currently available for pre-order from the Steamforged Games website. Both boxes are set for general release on 10 June 2022.
