Listen well adventurers. It’s time to set the scene and learn a little more about our foe:
Whispers travel across the seas of a titanic beast that dwells in the depths. A snapping, snarling chaos that surges from beneath the waves to snatch its prey. Some speak of these monstrous predators singing to one another with haunting, wordless ululations crooned over silent seas. Others of slow death; victims kept alive to be consumed limb by limb. Sailors give it many names — old grim teeth, the living island. No matter the name, or the language it’s spoken in, all sailors fear the dragon turtle.
But they’re just whispers, right? Nothing more than exaggerated tales told by firelight?
Wrong. The dragon turtle is very real. And it’s hungry… Whether for gold, human flesh, or some inscrutable purpose borne of its draconid mind, you’re not sure. But it’s coming for you, one way or the other.
Many feared creatures lurk in the dark places beneath the waves… But none are as feared as the dragon turtle. These colossal sea-dwelling beasts have the shape of a turtle, but ten times the size, and the mind of a dragon, wise and treasure-hungry. This may well be your sternest test yet.
Inside this boss box is everything you need to challenge a Dragon Turtle, including a large, highly detailed Dragon Turtle miniature (110mm base!) and an adventure book woven with information to fuel your imagination. It’s up to you to discover which rumours and whispers are true!
Can you defeat the dreaded Dragon Turtle, or will you end up sleeping with the fishes?
It’s playable as a standalone battle but you can also use it as part of a wider campaign and, as with all our Epic Encounters sets, each box contains everything you need to run a 5e compatible roleplaying campaign.
Roleplayers looking to run a thrilling campaign on the high seas should combine this boss box with Island of the Crab Archon – a brutal warband box filled to the brim with cut-throat crustaceans!
