Six adventures for character levels 1-13

Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics don't waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or NPCs who aren't meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you fear, and the secret doors you know are there somewhere.

This module is a collection of six related adventures designed to be played nonconsecutively over the course of a campaign. Each adventure builds on the one before it, but is complete and stand-alone. This allows the DM to weave an ongoing plot line into his larger campaign, which gets revealed bit by bit, one episode at a time. As the heroes progress in level, they slowly uncover a great plot by an ancient summoner to forge the Oculum Infernae, a terrifying artifact that will allow him to read the heavens with perfect clarity. Only by stopping his efforts can the heroes ensure that the evil wizard won't summon an army of unspeakable terror!

If you enjoy this adventure, look for the rest of the Dungeon Crawl Classics series!


  • A new approach to adventures: six stand-alone modules designed to be played at different times in a campaign, which slowly weave a connected storyline
  • Each adventure can be played on its own, or they can be tied to the larger metaplot
  • Six separate adventures each with its own distinct theme, including such unique settings as a paladin's burial sanctuary, the lair of a xill trophy hunter, and a wizard's tower sinking into a tar pit
  • A climactic finale where the PCs must stop an evil summoner from bringing an army of devils into the world

A bit different from other offerings in the Dungeon Crawl Classics line, this book provides six loosely-linked complete adventures to weave into an ongoing campaign. As the party rises in level they unravel more and more of a dastardly plot being hatch [...]

This DCC is an excellent resource for ideas for between adventures. They're more than just 'regroup at the tavern and go see what the boss/Laird/Priest wants.' [...]

For those longing the "good ole' days" of dungeon crawls, this is an excellent work.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Very well laid out and the production quality of the maps and hand outs is very well done. I also like the con [...]

I have a group which games once a month, if we are lucky (older group, some of us have kids, others are workaholics, so 2x/mo. is not an option). Long single dungeons are a problem, bc we never get thru a large one in one sitting, and even with a good [...]

I really like the idea of having a set of adventures that are not linearly following in each other's footsteps but do continue a plotline. Unfortunately, this product does have it's difficulties.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: I've read [...]

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.
