Might wake up roasting in a brazen bull, but otherwise sounds fun!

I personally would allow stowing weapons and casting spells in the same round if the caster didn't also try to move.

Exactly how I'd do it.

Hear the cry of war louder than before 
With his sword in hand to control the land 
Crushing metal strikes on this frightening night 
Fall onto your knees for the phantom lord


If I ever write another module, I will weave in a phantom lord reference. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

Big Vance fan, so I pledged this one too. I don't have the DCC rules, but I imagine I can pillage some cool material for my Hyperborea games.

Charnel Crypt would be great for a one shot.  I'd also recommend Ghost Ship.  I ran it at Gary Con a couple years ago, starting the party out in the desert just arriving at the site of the dungeon.  The players were all brand new to Hyperborea and it went over very well.

Jeff ran Ghost Ship for some of us at Gary Con back in 2013-2014 or so, had an awesome time. It's a great one!

Hi all,

im thinking of running a one shot game at a local con in the UK later this year, especially as interest seems to have been sparked given the 3e Kickstarter. I’m guessing it would be mostly beginning players.  Which of the published modules would people recommend - something that would fit well into a 3 hour slot.? A bit of research suggests maybe the Brazen Bull but I’d welcome any other suggestions. 

Welcome aboard, goat major. I think Charnel Crypt, Rats and Brazen Bull would all be great. I'm partial to Brazen Bull because I wrote it, but I have run Charnel Crypt and played Rats. All good choices. If you go with BB, let me know. Happy to help.

A few perks, nothing elaborate that derails anything.

Also, what's the rough...size of the city? 12 miles wide? 26 miles?

I think I counted 26 hexes on chainsaw's map (very faint outlines of them :-)

Man, I have not looked at that map in a few years.

Here's how I was thinking about size at the time:

When I think of an (8-10) x (10-12) mile city area in real life, I basically get an area from the southern tip of Manhattan to just north of Central Park, around Columbia U., but then the same thing on the East-West access. That's big. If you walk straight south from the top of Central Park to Wall Street briskly, unencumbered and making no stops, it will take you several hours and you will be tired (take a cab!). Everything north of Midtown would basically be the old city, with its gloomy towers, and everything south of Midtown being 1-4 story buildings, all jam-packed together in a twisting labyrinth of streets and alleys. It's a big, big area that I could never fill out even if I tried. Granted, much of it would be only sparsely populated given 30k people, but I think that's good. Leaves plenty of opportunities to add things. Oh yeah, we haven't even started talking about everything underneath the surface either!
