The Terror of Tiki Pterodactyl!

A Trip to Tropical Terror!

It was supposed to be a relaxing island cruise to get away from it all: the city, crime, would-be conquerors… but the best-laid plans…

When the cruise ship is pulled off course and attacked by strange dinosaur men, the heroes are marooned on an uncharted island and thrust into an ancient conflict between mystical forces. Can they survive the island’s hazards and save the ship’s passengers from the sinister Temple of the Spirit of Fire and overcome The Terror of Tiki Pterodactyl...?

This adventure for Icons Superpowered Roleplaying is suitable for any group of heroes and makes for a fun, off-beat change-of-pace. Give your heroes a “vacation” from the ordinary they won’t soon forget!

The Terror of Tiki Pterodactyl, written and illustrated by Dan “The Man” Houser, is now on-sale and available for download on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow!

CR of 1/2 and no flying speed at 4th level, and a max. CR of 1 and no movement limits at 8th level. The Circle of the Moon druid archetype increases the CR limits to druid level divided by 3 and rounded down (minimum of 1).

Given these guidelines and taking a look at the Beast table of D&D Monsters by Type, what do we note…? Continue reading
