The Special Edition has the 9, double-page map images that taken out of the book and used during play in vivid color. Otherwise, this is the same as our standard black and white edition. So if you want to go that extra mile for your sweetie, here’s your chance. Or if you’d prefer the black and white version, find it here: Black and white 5th Edition Rescue of the Blackthorn Clan.
Make Date Night an Adventure
Looking for an RPG specifically made for a couple to play together? We’ve got you covered. We created modules where both people can be players and enjoy the unfolding story, not where one knows all and spells out the story for the other – Date Night Dungeons. The goal is for the players to not only have a fun adventure but also to spark romance. It’s perfect for date night, whether the players are just getting to know each other or have been together for years.
The Big Idea
Each partner both GMs and plays, and mysteries unfold for both as the story moves forward. We’ve divided the adventure into four scenarios. We encourage players to switch GM duties for each scenario and to not read past the current scenario to avoid spoilers. That way, both partners get to be players, and the mystery lasts until the final scenario. Our fleshed-out RPG module is 5th edition compatible and complete with locations, maps, backstories, character sheets, NPCs, and baddies.
Bring on the Romance
To facilitate the romance, we’ve also added a few extras, like Attraction Points, Turn-ons, and Pet Peeves. These keep your mind focused on the romance as our characters battle villains and solve mysteries. Players make romance roll throughout. It’s the dice, though, that decide if our characters fall for each other or can’t wait to get rid of each other. Then again, isn’t love always a roll of the dice?
The heir to the Blackthorn power and fortune is being held for ransom. Now it’s up to the head of security at the manor to get the heir back. But when they learn that the kidnappers mean to kill the Thane as well, they must work together to find out who is behind the plot and why. They soon learn that things are far more sinister than they first appeared. Now they must foil the mastermind’s evil plot before the planes of hell break loose – if they can. So light some candles, set the mood, and let the adventure begin.

Joseph Goslin III –
Love this idea! Got it for me and the wife for Valentine’s day, hope they put out more like it!
It took us some time to get around to playing the campaign, what with our busy work schedules and all. I really liked the overall story. The attraction point mechanic wasn’t really necessary as me and my husband had plenty enough fun just playing the campaign. I will say that it’s really nice having a 2-player campaign. You also don’t necessarily have to be in a romantic relationship to play this. It would work just fine between platonic friends; you would just ignore the romantic stuff.The story took a really cool and dark twist towards the end (no spoilers from me.) I do recommend the color edition as it gives the game a little more life. The book spells everything out and is well prepared in my opinion.
