Roleplaying adventure hooks

Looking for inspiration for your next roleplaying adventure? Then look no further! We’ve put together these three adventure hooks to give you some ideas for your next gaming session. These adventure hooks all take place in forests or woods. Enjoy!

The well of lost voices

In the middle of the forest a strange well is discovered. At night, strange noises and whispered voices can be heard coming from within.


The well is old and strange. Nothing on the outside can explain the noises and voices. The only way to find out more will be to climb down into the well. Deep within the darkness, hidden from the view of those above, is a portal to another realm. Who and what calls this realm home and whether they are aware of the portal is yet to be discovered.

Judging a book by its cover

Passing through a dark and unsafe part of the forest, the group discover a large party of orcs and trolls transporting what looks like starving children in makeshift cages. Something must be done.


No doubt the orcs and trolls are up to no good. The party can easily free the starving children and lead them to safety. However, when they do, it quickly becomes apparent that everything is not what it seems. These are no children, they are evil shapeshifters that the orcs and trolls have spent weeks tracking and trapping to prevent them causing any more damage.

Strange totems

Passing through a dense and spooky forest the adventurers find life sized totems of different humanoid characters. They are incredibly detailed… Almost lifelike.


There are dozens of ‘totems’ spread around a very distinct area of the forest. At the centre of this area is a small shack occupied by a powerful spellcasting hermit who has captured passers by and turned them to wood to keep them as part of his little ‘village’. He must be stopped but the party will have to be careful not to become a permanent fixture in his strange world of make-believe.
