There’s nothing quite like taking a walk through the wilderness.
Seeing the trees. The hills. The flora and fauna. The crashed spaceships…wait, what?
An Occurrence At Howling Crater is the new Kickstarter from Planet X Games that is perfect for both DCC RPG and MCC RPG. Taking inspiration from classic sources, it pits your characters against not just what they find at the site of the crashed artifact, but also the cult that has formed around the craft and the energy it exudes.
Here’s some info straight from the Kickstarter:
Brutal tales of the desolate, unforgiving wasteland known as Howling Crater have long caused travelers and caravan masters to give it a wide berth, but now fresh accounts of depravity and madness have begun to circulate out of that forbidden wasteland. Deep within the barren recesses of the crater, a murderous family of mutated crater folk has begun to preach the gospel of “the glory of the glow” and with it has come incurable sickness and murderous incursions across the land. Even stranger rumors have made the rounds as of late, whispering of a long-forgotten civilization of steel and fire, born in a swirling inferno of radioactive dust and powered by ancient alien astronaut-gods, lost deep within the crater’s recesses.
Can your PCs fight their way past this mutated, maniacal cult of alien-worshipping crater mutants to explore the truth of Howling Crater? Do they dare penetrate the inner mysteries of an ancient crashed ship and put a stop to the biological terrors that now run loose? Will they discover the true, terrifying secret behind the horrible happenings at Howling Crater?!
Inspired by the pulp weird fantasy of Gary Gygax’s infamous Appendix N, An Occurrence at Howling Crater is designed for a group of four to six 4th-level PCs. The adventure can be used for campaign play or as a one-shot non-competitive module, but also works equally well as a tournament scenario for both Dungeon Crawl Classics and Mutant Crawl Classics.
The Kickstarter is already funded and working its way through stretch goals! Head on over to the Kickstarter and show them some love this holiday season! And keep watching the skies!
