Cathedral of the Undying – Print + PDF

A 20-page level 5 adventure into a cursed cathedral where death is only the beginning!

Among other elements, what makes Cathedral of the Undying a unique adventure is that PCs will not initially die when killed. A force is bringing them back to life, but also one step closer towards becoming a mindless undead! PCs imagining this is a form of invulnerability may soon discover they have permanently joined the creatures of the night.

As in many of Studio 9 Games DCC adventures, there are visual puzzles for players to solve. The enigmas of three high priests who have shared a single holy site leave mysteries to unravel! PCs will have to make hard choices about the living and the dead, which is complicated by the necromantic curse blurring the line between the two. Allies and enemies may bear a shared visage.

Will the PCs succumb to the TRICKS within the Cathedral and join the legion of the grave, OR will they stop the ritual and TREAT the forces of darkness to sorcery, steel, sanctity, and savvy? The final barrier just might be their own shadowy selves!

This 20-page level 5 adventure is created for Dungeon Crawl Classics

Crepuscular #2: Triumph Over the Grave – Print + PDF

Unfortunate souls fight egophages on the Nigh-Infinite Stairwell

Triumph Over the Grave, a 0-level funnel-crawl

The last thing you remember is dying. In fact it’s the only thing you remember. You have a vague recollection of your name and knowledge of your professional skills, more instinct and reflex than memory. But your death, that memory is vivid and crystal clear. Now you find yourself crawling out of some kind of shiny black pod made from rapidly decaying material that feels like fingernails. You are naked and soaked in amniotic fluid, and you see several other people crawling from several other pods in the same state.

Included inside the pages:

  • Triumph Over the Grave, a 0-level funnel-crawl
  • A visitor’s guide to Xöhma-Ghül, the Crepuscular City
  • Two new classes, the Moribund and the Rakehell
  • The Adventures of Moonblosson & Chance
  • 12 Henchmen for hire
  • And more!

Sixty pages in glorious color from Joshua LH Burnett.
