Truth or Dare as D&D Adventure

Want to play Dungeons and Dragons but have absolutely nothing planned? Instead of straining your bullshit muscle or spend the night rolling on a million random tables to generate an adventure, just have the characters gather in a tavern and play a good ol' fashioned game of Truth or Dare. Everyone knows how to play Truth or Dare.

Players will role play the game of Truth or Dare, challenging the other characters to perform foolhardy tasks or divulge dark secrets. This is an excellent time to get to know the characters, practice role playing and get the players into some pretty sticky situations.

Players can come up with their own truths or dares, but in case they are stuck on what to ask, consult the following tables. In instances where a dare involves going to another location, hand-wave all travel, dungeon crawling, or any other boring logistical details and get right to the good stuff.

Some of the dares can lead to benign consequences, while others will get the whole party in a heap of trouble. It's up to the GM what amount of trouble each dare causes.
