All Aboard the Astral Express – FREE 5e Adventure with all Assets – Epic Creator Collaboration

Follow THIS LINK to see the original Christmas Patreon post.

Every year, Klaus the Kindhearted travels across the planes visiting all the good little boys and girls and delivering to them magical treats and gifts. He does this on his magical train, The Astral Express. This year, however, while skirting the abyss he inadvertently picked up a nefarious hitchhiker. A creature born of malice and hunger and hate: The Gingerdead Man. Summoned by Klaus as a last-ditch effort to save his train and the gift-giving season, will your party be able to safely navigate the Astral Express and thwart the Gingerdead Man’s evil plots?

Hey everyone!

In honor of the holiday season, we have gathered together for another free collaboration, this time centered around a magically powered train soaring through the sky!

Along with maps of a wide variety of train cars to navigate through, this collaboration includes a written adventure, new monsters, minis, magic items, and musical tracks to bring it all together in one cohesive package! You can view a list of everything contained in the pack below as well as links to each of the creators responsible for contributing to this effort. Most creators have also created their own patron-only content, so we highly encourage that you check out their Patreons below.

Included in this mega collaboration is:

  • 4 atmospheric musical tracks
  • 8 yuletide magic items
  • 17 monsters complete with stats
  • 25 monster tokens
  • 16 different 17 x 11 maps, available as gridded and gridless, as well as printable PDFs.
  • 2 backdrops to place your maps onto

To everyone reading this, we hope you enjoy this huge collaboration. We wouldn’t be able to create all this without your support! From everyone who joined in on this project, thank you for your patronage. 🙂

It was an honor to be apart of this collaboration with so many other talented creators. This is my first foray into the TTRPG creator’s community and it was a fantastic experience. Thank you all and Merry Christmas!!!
