The Haunted Wood

I’ve just made my latest RPG adventure book live on .

This is an adventure for The Black Hack 2E rules, for about 4-6 Level 4 characters. Here’s the cover of the printed copy I got the proof of this morning:

And here are a couple of pics of the interior pages, and the maps at the back of the book (also inside, and the PDF download has a separate file with all the maps on it):

Here’s the blurb:

Across the border, along an old trail, nestled between two steep and rocky hills, lies the Haunted Wood. Blanketed in snow, gloomy and still, the wood does not like visitors. Of those few who enter, fewer still come back out, and those that do are always changed.

Why Go into the Woods?

Deep in the snowy woods is a tree unlike any other. It is said to be one of the roots of the First Tree, a link to Ancient Times and Places Beyond. The tree bears succulent fruit that is full of time; its juices flow with golden seconds and silver minutes, and eating the fruit reverses time, restoring youth, bringing the dead back to life, and even showing visions of the future. So it is said. This is reason enough for people to go into the woods, to search for the Root, to pick its fruit and taste the juices of time on their tongues. Aging kings and queens of fading beauty would sell their kingdoms for such a prize

I’ve played it (which makes a change) and it played well, pretty much as I intended, and it should last a few sessions.

If anyone plays/runs it, I’d love to hear about it.

Go buy it. It’s certainly worth the money, considering how much time and effort went into it.

It looks pretty too 🙂
