Make Date Night an Adventure
Looking for an RPG specifically made for a couple to play together? 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. We call them 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 Pathfinder 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.

We really enjoyed playing through this game as a couple. Please make more of these!
Love this game! My husband and I both enjoy tabletop games and this was a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Hopefully more are released in the future!
Arrived ahead of schedule and in good conditionFour stars for the deliveryFifth star has to wait until I finish, but looks good so far.
This was a very fun break from our typical homebrew setting or Adventure Paths we’ve been currently playing. We finished it in just under a month and have ended up keeping the characters we made to bring into other adventures. We only changed some minor things on the NPCs (mostly giving everything an advanced template) and completely made our own ranger and sorcerer while still pauing homage to the given stats in the book. It was cute, exciting, and like a classic Paizo module, leaves a lot open for the DM to play with, expand on, and fill in themselves. I look forward to the next Date Night Dungeon!
