Beware of this Post, It Will Eat Your Wallet

Rob Conley from Bat in the Attic Blog and Bat in the Attic Games has unleashed his adventure set in the Majestic Wilderlands, Scourge of the Demon Wolf.  This book is jam packed.  Don't be fooled that this is just and adventure, it is also a companion to his The Majestic Wilderlands

Scourge of the Demon Wolf is a non-linear adventure.  It is a true sandbox adventure.  The players could solve the mystery in several ways.  Rob has playtested this adventure several times and has included some of his own experiences of the playtests within the adventure.  I liked his inclusion of his own notes.  The other great thing about Scourge is it a mystery adventure.  There are clues, suspects, agendas and an exciting conclusion.  I've run it myself a couple of times and it was a lot of fun running it and watching the players sift through everything they learn.

As I said, the adventure takes up the first half of the book, but this puppy is 72 pages long.  The second half of the book is crammed packed full of goodness for the Majestic Wilderlands.  If you bought the original I think you'll be very pleased with the companion pieces.

And if all this goodness wasn't enough, if you know Rob, you know he does the best maps in the business.  His maps are pieces of art on their own.  Speaking of art, Jason Sholtis and John Larrey did the art.  All of it.  Look at the color pieces for the cover.  I know those two worked hard as hell helping Rob bring his adventure to life.

But wait...there's even more.  Right now Lulu is running a 20% off sale.  Just put in the word JEKYLL.

The book is $15 and available at Lulu (it will also be available at RPGNow in a couple of weeks).  And the PDF is $10 and available at Lulu and RPGNow
