The Bone Hoard Beckons!




My first published module for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, Adventure Locale 1 - Bone Hoard of the Dancing Horror, is available now on RPGnow and on Gumroad.  


This 2nd level adventure is intended to be easily slotted into any Dungeon Crawl Classics campaign, and features new monsters and new magic items. 


So, if your party has dealt with The People of the Pit and faced the Doom of the Savage Kings, uncovering the Bone Hoard is the natural next step!

I ran it once for some strangers on Free RPG Day and they loved it, although we didn't quite get to finish because of time issues. I'm running it again for my gaming group in just a couple of hours.


Basically, it's a fun adventure with some neat monsters and cool treasure at the end. Lots of creepy monsters to kill, lots of rooms to explore. It's a well-written module but very compact. (Only 9 pages, I think. My first reaction was "where is the rest of the module" but the information is well organized and it doesn't need much space.)


Thumbs up from me!


The first review is also up on RPGNow!

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune and HP Lovecraft's Under the Pyramids.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.

    Yours,
    James.

  2. Nice. I was one of the playtesters! I like your style. Finding out you are on the patrons project leaves me at ease.

    1. Glad to hear from you! If you liked Bone Hoard, I believe you will really like Stars in the Darkness, which is the one I am currently working on, and Through the Cotillion of Hours, which is currently in playtest.

      What did you think of the sample (Hecate) from the patrons project that I posted? Right now, my favourite among the patrons I am working on is actually Radu, King of Rabbits....I can't really explain why, though. lol. But he's the sort of entity that would be fun to throw into a game even if no player characters used him as a patron.
