Dungeon Crawl Classis Adventure Sketches: Part 1

 I am currently in the process of writing a third-party compatible Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) adventure titled ‘Beneath the Giant’s Head’, which builds on the setting established in Fantastic Adventures and the Disgruntled Gong Farmer, a DCC adventure module I previously wrote.  ‘Beneath the Giant’s Head’ will be a second level adventure and will involve the characters exploring the caverns below the Giant’s Head Mountain to uncover the source of the ‘evil’ that has been unleashed upon the dwarves of the Giant’s Head Mountain.

 

‘Beneath the Giant’s Head’ is divided in two parts.  The first part will take place in the village of Greenleaf (the setting for the previous adventures), where the characters will receive a series of rumours concerning the Dwarf King’s efforts to dig below the Giant’s Head Mountain.  The rumours will occur over a span of several weeks, during which the characters will have the opportunity to interact with the villagers and will take part in mini adventures around the village.  Eventually, the characters will be summoned to the Giant’s Head Mountain on behalf of the Dwarf King, who is offering a generous reward for uncovering the source of the evil that has been unleashed upon his kingdom.

 

The five images below are for the first part of the adventure.

The second part of the adventure will involve the characters exploring the caverns below the Giant’s Head Mountain.  There, the characters will face the source of the ‘evil’ that has been unleashed upon the dwarves.  The below images represent non-player characters and monsters found in the second part of the adventure.
