Dungeon Crawl Classics #74: Blades Against Death(DCC RPG Adventure)
A Level 4 Adventure for DCC RPG
Punjar: wide-eyed madmen stalk the streets pronouncing the end of days, mail-clad priests crush the skulls of heathens underfoot, and timorous virgins are offered up in sacrifice within sooty temples. But even the greatest of shining temples and the strangest of mystery cults don’t dare to challenge the terrifying finality of death.
Until now. In Blades Against Death, the adventurers cross between the realms of the living and the dead, and wager their souls in a desperate bid to steal a soul from Death’s hoary grasp. To win over the God of Dooms, you must be the most daring, stalwart and cunning and – when all else fails – willing to test your blades against Death!
A mid-level adventure for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game, Blades against Death offers characters a once in a lifetime escapade. Those that return from the Realms of the Dead will have earned the true title of adventurer, while those that fail will spend eternity in Death’s service.
Includes the new mini-adventure “Abbott of the Woods” by Harley Stroh, as well as the four Tarot Card handouts now printed in full color.
- Tenkar’s Tavern: “First, let me start out by saying that Blades Against Death oozes with atmosphere.”
- Ten Foot Pole: “This adventure brings the Appendix N feel the way I have not seen in some time. The characters find a way in to the afterlife to save a comrade, stealing, sneaking, conniving, and fighting till they break on thru to the other side . It hits over and over again with that N feel and delivers the way few others do.”
