20 Dwarf Quest Ideas

Dwarf D&D Quest Ideas

Today’s 20 D&D dwarf quest ideas comes from Twitch streamer, Amishman:

1. There is a dispute among the blacksmiths, someone is stealing their tools, all of them are blaming each other rather then look for real evidence.

2. There is someone going around doing the most evil thing of all, going into nobleman’s houses… and shaving their beards off when they sleep. Many nobles are too afraid to show their disgusting and beardless faces.

3. After digging what the lesser races would call… too deep… the dwarf mines have found both a gold vein and a shrine to a demon lord. Go get rid of the shrine and cultists so they can get the mines reopen.

4. Clearing out the mines. Some goblins/bug things/dragon clawed into the tunnels and it needs to be sorted out.

5. Quick gather some wheat in order to make and forge legendary dwarvish bread weapons. Then quickly distribute them in order to defend against the mildly irritating rat king.

6. Rediscover a forgotten dwarven form of magic called Stone Singing. Need to find a race of friendly elementals long separated from the dwarven people, you could use Galeb Duhr instead of elementals.

7. A gnome entrepreneur has come to the dwarf halls with a small team of Apparatus of Kwalish that have been re-purposed for mining, the local miners want to hire the PCs to sabotage the machines and the Gnome wants to hire the PCs to protect the devices from saboteurs.

8. Dwarves have a fairly high mushroom intake in their diet. Their mushroom caverns have been poisoned and the PCs are tasked with finding out why. (Druids who hate mineral extraction from the earth, Myconoids trying to awaken their fodder cousins leaving them poisonous, Duergar plot to kill their kind-hearted cousins, the gnome from the last hook re-purposed his Apparatus to harvest mushrooms is leaving them inedible)

9. A dwarven Ale Meister hires the PCs to delve into a lost dwarven hall that legend says holds the recipe to some sort of ambrosia-beer so that he might win an upcoming competition and solidify his name as the greatest Ale Meister in all the halls. Why was the hall lost? Pick an underdark race (Duergar, Drow, Neogi, and Tsochar tend to make more sense than the more food-centric like Mind Flayers or alien like Grell and Aboleth…though pretty much anything will work)

10. The Dwarf mine in the volcano has been dug too deep and has freed an ancient demon.

11. The Dwarves throw a feast for the party at the end of a different adventure and at the party someone dies. To prevent the unknown murderer from escaping the Dwarves lock down the house/manor/keep and the players must help to solve the mystery since Dwarves don’t really make good detectives.

12. The Dwarves are besieged by a gigantic army from the Underdark, they have been guarding the only entrance to the Underdark in the area and if they fall the unprepared races/kingdoms they have been protecting for centuries will surely fall.

13. Old man Worcestershire at the bar has a map to a rumored treasure deep beneath the volcano, but doesn’t have funds or warriors willing to go after it as it is supposedly guarded by undead/demons.

14. The lord of the city is rumored to have been killed and replaced with a doppleganger. A local guard thought he saw the lord change skin, but he can’t be sure. He approaches the party for help with the matter.

15. A townswoman has been hearing strange rattling and moans coming from the abandoned house next door. She asks the party to investigate.

16. Two opposing tailors each have half of the finest pair of pants ever created. You have been hired to repair the pants and reunite the halves.

17. The library has been infested with small mimics disguised as books. Exterminate them.

18. Through less-than-reputable channels, the party hears about a plan to hunt a small roving group of purple worms. The local crime syndicate wants the precious and hard to obtain organs and blood from the worms. The local city guard wants the location of the nest discovered and reported and nothing more.

19. A noble requests that the party deliver a small package. Around ten minutes after the package is delivered, someone approaches the party and asks where their package is, providing valid identification.

20. A city watchman requests the party’s help in setting up a sting. If the party agrees, the operation begins, but when the target arrives, at least one member of the party recognizes the target and believes them to be innocent.

Amishman has been gaming since the early 80’s and once fought Danny DeVito in a K-Mart parking lot. He can be found at
