Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.


It is 1985, a time of loud clothes, big hair, and no cell phones. You are a camp counselor, heading to Camp Turner for a summer job on a hot, dusty, old, converted school bus. The camp hasn't been used in 13 years. After you depart the bus and begin to clean up the place, you find some disturbing clues from the early 1970s—around the time the camp was shut down. The local newspapers dubbed the place "Camp Terror." What?

Camp Terror is a one shot, mad slasher funnel adventure, in the spirit of all your favorite films in this genre from the 1980s. You play one or more of the fresh-faced camp counselors who are sure to perish during the story. Embrace the fun and suspense of dying in some spectacular fashion. Once you do, pick another character and die all over again.

Can you survive a night in Camp Terror? Probably not.

The PDF is 44 pages; the softcover print-on-demand book (POD) is 59 6"x9" pages—both have the same content as follows:

  • Backstory and Three Acts -  Background information for the GM to prepare and run the adventure, with three cinematic Acts to simulate the mass murder mayhem of a mad slasher flick.
  • Fourteen character sheets - A set of 14 pre-generated victims, er, characters for the players to enjoy. Until they die.  
  • Fifteen Clue Handouts - A set of handouts to give the players when their characters find clues to the history of Camp Turner.
  • Stat blocks - for nonplayer Wild Cards and Extras involved in the story.

When you buy the POD softcover book, you can get the PDF for free! Make sure to click the option for both.

Whatever you do, never, ever say "I'll be right back."

DHR is an Ace licensee publisher for Savage Worlds.

Just picked this up, and hope to run it for a couple of friends. Just curious if anyone has run this for just 2 people. Wondering if I should hand out 3 or 4 campers per player instead of just 2? Thanks for any input!

Running the second act is the best part. Remind the players of The Three Rules setting rule. They'll get the hint (hopefully) and start splitting up. Once they do, keep the tension up.
I deal cards and go in order but keep it loose and easy. It's not a combat round, but what do you want to do in that round. Hit them with some false jump scares at first, don't forget the Fear rolls, then by the second round start slashing! Give out the Bennies. A big stack of Bennies will give them false hope, and have them do the worst things.
Most of all, don't be afraid to use your Bennies to reroll damage. Don't worry about the Slasher getting hurt, it may, but it'll be back.

Thanks for the advice. Was a lot of fun and wrapped it up in 4 hours almost exactly.

Hey Paul,

I've run it a bunch of times, mostly at conventions. I try to keep people moving along. It takes about 4 hours to get through.

For those who have run it, how long did it take?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
