The Howling Caverns

The Howling Caverns

The hunched beast prowls the forest, sniffing at the still air. The roiling sky flashes and thunder breaks ther silence. The time is near and the beast senses it. The monstrous form bounds toward the darkened village, a demonic howl in its throat…

Shipwrecked on a perilous shore, a group of adventurers cross into a blighted land and confront a deadly and cursed apparition. Can you unravel the mystery and solve the Barghest’s curse before it devours your soul?

What Others Have Said

“…well done with decent interactivity and good writing and layout. It builds tension… Impressive effort for a first offering and can easily trump a lot of WOTC/Paizo offerings.”

— Bryce Lynch,

“I ran this as a first-time GM and it was great! Some inventive uses of monsters from the Monster Manual as well as some unique ones. This adventure was a great introduction to being a GM for me and a good introduction to tabletop gaming for the players!”
