Everyone Needs a Little Smile Now And Then…

I’m thrilled to announce that Purple Sorcerer Games will be publishing David Baity’s twisted The Carnival of the Damned, a Dungeon Crawl Classics adventure designed for both ‘next serf up’ tournament style play and as a traditional 0-level funnel!

Carnival of the DamnedPlayers who have experienced the adventure at conventions like GaryCon and DragonCon know it’s packed with surreal horrors: characters find themselves trapped in a mist-shrouded carnival in the dead of night, tasked to rescue scores of village children who vanished after returning home from a magical day at a seemingly innocent carnival. Nightmares come to life as players move deeper into a mad environment ruled by a dark power, struggling to survive corrupted versions of carnival oddities like the Hall of Mirrors and Tunnel of Love.

For judges, the adventure can fill many needs: David has crafted over 30 intricately detailed encounters and dozens of random threats. There is enough content for days of tournament play, or judges can select a smaller collection of favorite dangers for a quick funnel session. For sandbox-style play, judges have the option of extracting individual encounters whenever a twisted challenge is needed. There’s even a haunting backstory for those looking to integrate the adventure into an extended campaign. 
Illustrated with a host of creepy images from artists Todd McGowan, Danny Prescott, Stan Reed, and Simon Todd, the 96+ page digest-sized adventure has entered layout and final editing and should be available in print and PDF this summer. I think you’ll love it!
And there’s clowns. Lots and lots of clowns.

    I have played this adventure at Gary Con, ran by David and I highly recommend it. I'll definitely be buying it. Now if you can get David to run it for you; you are in for a real treat.
