A few of my players have some vacation time, and I threw out the idea of a 5 day marathon of game. We talked about some one shots or a super dungeon, but then it struck me. Name me a better marathon than SHARK WEEK! So, I present to you Dragon Week! Kidnap your players, drop them in a different pocket plane every "episode", and slay some dragons just for the hell of it! I'll be putting notes in parentheses as I'm still working out the finer points, but let me know if you have any questions or ideas!

(The players find themselves in a black space with blinding lights beaming down on them. As their vision clears, they see that they are surrounded by hundreds of floating portals. Through the misty arcane pools, they see all manner of people and creatures watching them in anticipation. A deep reptilian voice suddenly fills the space)
"Welcome to the greatest display of entertainment in all the Astral Sea!
Every year, we choose several arguably lucky parties to participate in DRAGON WEEK!
This series of challenges will test their grit, their stamina, their will, and most importantly, their prowess!
The challenges include returning fan favorites
Eat, Pray, Chum (Fighting a Dragon turtle/water dragon either by staying atop the wreckage of a destroyed fleet of ships or below after grabbing the "powerups" for underwater combat)
Sand Storm (Fighting a brass dragon in a gold filled hoard cave as it fills with sand )
Dragon Island (Running through the jungle, being hunted by vicious kobolds ands feral wyrmlings)
I was Prey: Surviving the Rage (Takes place just after a Red Dragon has destroyed a major city, and they have to bring it down and defeat it classic hero style)
And by special request, we'll be adding a new one to the mix:
In the Mind's Eye (Defeating a Mind Flayer Dragon in its Underdark lair)
As always, any surviving parties will have to duke it out in one final showdown (I'm either going to let the party roll percentiles after each round to see if any others actually survive, or just smudge it and drum roll them winning, depending on how my players are feeling) before claiming the GRAND PRIZE (TBD)!
So grab your Rat-on-a-Stick, settle down in front of your scrying portals, and get ready for the best DRAGON WEEK ever!"
