Adventure Tuesday – DCC #68: The People of the Pit

It’s a new Adventure Tuesday, and that gives us a chance to showcase another Dungeon Crawl Classics module to help you find something to run this weekend!

This week we shine the spotlight towards an early classic from the days of DCC RPG, The People of the Pit! Inspired by the works of Abraham Merritt, this adventure brings forth a creature of nightmares that can only be quelled by the bravest of adventurers.

Let’s check out DCC #68: The People of the Pit!

A Level 1 Adventure for DCC RPG

It has been years since the last virgin was sacrificed: and now the pit beast awakens once more! Every generation it stumbles forth on undulating tentacles from its resting place deep below the great ravine, its towering blubbery mass ravaging the land before returning to slumber for decades. But this time is different. The Great Beast strikes with intelligence: bands of faceless gray-robed men emerge from the tenebrous depths, herding the beast’s roaming tentacles before them. The enigmatic people of the pit live despite the passage of ages! The earth shakes each night as they herd the primordial tentacles ever further, while the villagers ask: is any man brave enough to put the sword to this menace?

Assassins of the Pit:

BONUS ADVENTURE! This printing includes the adventure Assassins of the Pit by Daniel J. Bishop. Assassins of the Pit offers an additional area for your PCs to explore when undertaking the challenges of The People of the Pit.
