I think of the underlying power as eternal and spanning all realities, but its manifestation across time, space and possible worlds as varying. Hyborians may say Crom, Hyperboreans may say Krimmr, for example. As a sort of Bermuda Triangle of legends, myths and realities, Hyperborea has some variants that may be familiar to us and others that may not be.

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.
