Escape from the Flesh Catacombs: Crawling Claw

A little over a week ago, I ran a playtest with Melissa for Escape From the Flesh Catacombs, pretty simple Black Book adventure, both for 0- and 1st-level PCs. It's basically a group of characters that are captured by a gorgon, but she gets killed before she can do anything to/with them, and then they have to escape.

On the upside, they don't have to deal with a gorgon. On the downside, everything she's petrified has turned back to flesh, but since most of her victims couldn't survive the various "alterations" the gorgon had made, they died almost immediately. Due to the location (catacombs), terrible acts committed there over who knows how long, and sudden mass deaths, these remains have been inhabited by vengeful spirits and demons.

Some of them (like the ones fused to sarcophagus lids) aren't capable of doing much: they're slow, weak, or both, while others (the gorgon's prized creations) are much stronger and faster. Like this super-sized Crawling Claw:

It's Large, really strong, and if it grabs you all the faces will start chowing down. In the adventure Melissa managed to take it down, though it picked off one of her 0-level commoners in the process. This is just one of many other unique creations: I'll post more as I get them done. Some time after Thanksgiving I should have the adventure ready for people that want to give it a look, and get a free PDF for their troubles.

You can now get a physical copy of Dungeons & Delvers: Black Book in whatever format you want!

It look a lot longer than expected, but we finally released The Jinni. As with our other monstrous classes, this one is more faithful to the mythology (so don't go in expecting elemental-themed jinn).

After putting it to a vote, the next couple of classes on the docket are the warden (think 4E D&D warden) and apothecary (gotta go see what they're all about).

Dwarven Vault is our sixth 10+ Treasures volume. If you're interested in thirty dwarven magic items (including an eye that lets you shoot lasers) and nearly a dozen new bits of dungeon gear, check it out!

Just released our second adventure for A Sundered World, The Golden Spiral. If a snail-themed dungeon crawl is your oddly-specific thing, check it out!

By fan demand, we've mashed all of our 10+ Treasure volumes into one big magic item book, making it cheaper and more convenient to buy in print (which you can now do).
