Anyone interested in exploring an ancient outpost filled with utter weirdness?

Looking forward to running it for you in June, at NTRPG Con, man. I think this will be my 16th time, if you can believe it.

Looks amazing!

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

Re: The Lost Treasure of Atlantis

Congratulations Chainsaw!  I did playtest this with you and I look forward to seeing the finished product!  If I see you at a future Gamehole or GaryCon I'll bring a celebratory rare beer for the author of said module to consume!


Other bands play, Manowar kill!

Looks interesting, guess they failed their 'Discern Noise,' roll since that giant crab is RIGHT BEHIND THEM!

Re: The Lost Treasure of Atlantis

Simple, yet says so much. Looks very fun!

Is this a single adventure or a series like Rats in the Walls?

A single adventure with lots of ways to approach it. When I ran it at conventions, groups often had very different experiences. I had some people sign up again just so they could try another approach!

Oh, did I forget to tell you? The editor made it all linear. It now runs from plot point A to Z. There are some railroad ties to follow, in case one gets lost. Cheers!
