This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

"...At The Darkness"!
« on: August 07, 2018, 07:34:03 PM »
A terrible Demon Prince rules over a huge section of the northern lands, and has been growing in power and territory for centuries. His power, and ability to remain on the Material Plane, derives from a pit to the Nether Regions that is protected by an impenetrable Field of Darkness.

The heroic PCs discover the magical research notes of the long-dead wizard Banang, who's final entries included this passage:

"Since the beginning of time, every wizard has had only one dream: to be able to cast Magic Missile at the darkness! Now, I have succeeded!"


RPGPundit Presents #42: At the Darkness is a gonzo OSR adventure, set in the world of the Last Sun but playable in any gonzo OSR campaign, involving a quest for the ultimate spell: Advanced Magic Missile, a Magic Missile spell that is finally able to be cast at the darkness, in order to liberate the north from the evil domination of the Demon Prince Zozzsz.   It features wilderness and dungeon adventuring, as the PCs must negotiate Zozzsz's Orcish armies, and his dreaded Wraith Princes, to seek out the only remaining scroll of this mighty spell.




Along the way, they'll also encounter the warrior-cultist Halconlords, Lenny the Cannibal, the local rebellion against Zozzsz's rule, and a doomed community of Hipster Elves living in a ruined elven dome; all of which might be friends... or foes.

Will your PCs be able to obtain the legendary Advanced Magic Missile spell? Or will the terrors of the demon-plagued north destroy them?

You can get RPGPundit Presents #42: At the Darkness from DTRPG, or the Precis Intermedia Webstore. Either way, it's just $2.99!
LION & DRAGON: Medieval-Authentic OSR Roleplaying is available now! You only THINK you've played 'medieval fantasy' until you play L&D.

And I'm 2.99 the poorer. But one adventure the richer, hehehe...

I'll give you my thoughts once I've read it. Like your last adventure I bought, I'll also give you my thoughts when/if it hits the table

Please do! I know my DCC players really loved this adventure, which is why I wrote it up as a module for this series.

Convinced!  Sounds like a neat adventure
Any comment I add to forum is from complete boredom.

It's pretty wild. And on the more 'comic relief' end of Gonzo. But I mean, if you didn't get that from the whole premise being a D&D in-joke to begin with, you really weren't paying attention.
