The Black Hack
The Castle of Falcon's Peak sits astride the mountain pass. Built many years ago by the bandit Lord Falcon and used as a base from which to launch raids on neighbouring regions and extort tribute from trading caravans. Eventually, the local Barons had enough and teamed up to lay siege to the keep. It fell after days of battle but Lord Falcon, his family and his treasure were never found. And, for some reason, no one has been able to occupy the castle ever since - with explorers regularly disappearing. Maybe it has something to do with the monster Lord Falcon was said to keep locked up in the dungeons beneath his lair.
Described as "special ops" D&D this is the classic adventure from the early days of Dungeon Magazine. "The OSR adventure others wish they were" said one review. I've always thought it to be a near perfect low level romp. Played using the incredibly lightweight, fastplay and FUN The Black Hack rules.
Pregenerated characters are available but you'll be encouraged to make your own. It's easy, fast and FUN. Characters will go from 1st to 2nd level during the game.
Old School D&D Roleplaying at its finest!
Note: This is a standalone adventure but players are welcome to reprise their characters - at 2nd level - if they previously played in SPIDERBITE which I offered on Friday afternoon.
