I Made a D&D Adventure!
Target Run is D&D meets Caddyshack.
BIG NEWS, ADVENTURER!
This morning I published Target Run, the official Adventure Snack module for Dungeons & Dragons!!
Grab your dice bag. Order a pizza pie. Play it right now. Seriously, hang up on your boss. This is far more urgent than expense reports, hero. In fact, quit your job? Adventure awaits!
Target Run is a D&D 5e sports comedy inspired by my love for films like Caddyshack and The Mighty Ducks. This is my debut title on DMs Guild, a well-known site in the D&D community for cool stuff to expand your tabletop game experience.

Q: WHAT IF I DON’T PLAY D&D?
A: I wrote Target Run so it would be an entertaining read, whether you play roleplaying games or not. Imagine an 80s slobs vs. snobs comedy through a fantasy lens. There are jokes, hero! Lots of them. A fancy hotel gets trashed. A snooty elf gets his comeuppance. You’re not gonna want to miss the comeuppance. And if you know someone who does play RPGs, Target Run makes for a cheap, er… thoughtful digital gift.
Q: WHAT’S TARGET RUN ABOUT?
A: I was ready for that one. Here’s the synopsis:
Need a little R&R? Then check into the world-class treetop resort Overtop Heights, home of the sun elf archery sport Alligan. Enjoy opulent amenities like fine dining, a tree sap spa, stolen treasure, a hammer-wielding groundskeeper, magical murder-hawks, pixie revolutionaries attempting a takeover, and the softest beds imaginable.
Join the fun-loving Tasvan on her quest to become the first dwarf to play Alligan at Overtop Heights. Crash parties, fight bullies, catch cheaters, live in luxury, and beat the superstars of Alligan at their own game to help Tasvan, earn gold, and shake up the stuffy world of Overtop Heights!
Q: WHAT ARE THE MAIN FEATURES OF THE GAME?
A: Let me run ‘em down for ya…
🎯 30+ pages of funny characters, sports excitement, and pixie pranks!
🎯 Cover and interior illustrations by the very talented Matt Rice.
🎯 Everything you need to play, including maps, stat blocks, and multiple endings.
🎯 The rules for Alligan, so you can play the sport in your homebrew campaign.
🎯 Help the slobs decimate the snobs… or join the snobs and make them twice as powerful?!
Q: WHY IS THIS GAME IMPORTANT TO YOU?
A: For years, I’ve wanted to write a D&D adventure, but I didn’t know where to start. I love roleplaying, but I thought only ancient wizards who memorized the challenge rating of a yochol could do it. Stuck inside last year, I decided to take an online class on tabletop RPG design, which provided the structure for me to learn the art of dungeoneering.
I wrote the first draft of Target Run pretty quickly, then I invested a year into revising, play testing, layout, illustrations, and polish, because I wanted Target Run to be the coolest, funniest game I could make, and I wanted it to represent Adventure Snack in the best light to a whole new audience.
Q: CAN I HELP YOU WIN AN AWARD WITH THIS?
A: Why yes, you can! If I sell just 51 copies, I’ll get a Copper badge on DMs Guild, which will bring honor to us all. There are silver and gold medals, too. So this is my promise to you, hero. If you help me get a badge on DMsGuild this week, I promise to share in the glory and shower you with praise and compliments. How’s that for a perk? Praise and compliments for less than $4!
