D&D: The Killing Joke
Remote D&D Campaign
Rumors about a joke so intense that it kills you have existed for generations. Whether it's because it's intensely bad, intensely funny, or something else differs each time the rumor spread anew; sometimes, people have multiple, conflicting accounts of how it affects listeners. One aspect is consistent, however: since it kills whoever hears it, it can only be transmitted via reading, and it can only be told by those who can't hear themselves speak. These are the only clues the authorities in Snarlikrux have as the rumors go from being whispered to being practically shouted, and as the body count rises with each day.
The Killing Joke is a homebrewed adventure for Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition inspired by urban legends. The rather absurd conceit of a "killing joke" exists in complete contrast to the fact that it is a very real danger in this tale.
