Sanctum Secorum Episode #16 Companion: Purple Priestess of the Mad Moon

The Sanctum Secorum Episode #16 Companion: Purple Priestess of the Mad Moon was written by Jen Brinkman, David Baity, and Bob Brinkman. Art is by A-Dreamare, CarlosNCT, GorillaEye, Lashghost12, Marcos Villarroel, NASA/JPL-Caltech, Night-claw, and Sergio GutiƩrrez Guerrero. The publisher is Sanctum Media. This product is produced in association with the Sanctum Secorum podcast.

This Episode Companion is based on Sanctum Secorum Episode 16: Purple Priestess of the Mad Moon, which discussed the short story by Leigh Brackett. The featured product was Crawljammer #1 by Tim Callahan.


Disclosure: Three adventures that I wrote, The Dread God Al-Khazadar, The Vault of Ash, and The Weird Worm Ways of Saturn, are discussed in this episode.

Within you will find:

Campaign Tools

Hypothermia: Freezing to death might not be fun, but author David Baity supplies some rules to simulate it. "Characters might think to grab a coat that will protect them from the frigid climes they’re exploring, but allow one the opportunity to become a human popsicle, should he neglect to equip himself, and you’ll see a newfound love for winter gear from those who survive!"

Letter to Altman: Penned by Jen Brinkman, you could use this artifact as a play aid to lure your suspecting players to the Canal Cities of Mars.

Featured Adventure

Operation: Jekkara: This is a 3rd level adventure, by Bob Brinkman, which takes place during the events of Leigh Brackett's Purple Priestess of the Mad Moon. The events at the adventure's climax have a chance to change the outcome of the story, but not necessarily as much as the players might hope (or the Aftermath section might indicate). It is still entirely possible that the story ends exactly as Leigh Brackett wrote it.

Magic Items

Mask of the Mad Moon Gods: This divine artifact, penned by David Baity, includes a strong penalty should it be desecrated by a non-believer. That was a nice touch which could be used more often in similar items. Although the mask allows the wearer to invoke patron once per day, who or what is represented by the Mad Moon is left to the judge's discretion.

Monsters

Two Martian creatures are given statistics by Bob Brinkman.

Khom: Triceratops-like reptiles with a Stegosaurus-like tail.

Ramas: A race of immortals, who steal bodies to live.

As with previous Companions, this volume can help the discerning Dungeon Crawl Classics judge determine how to stat up creatures from whatever movie or literature she likes.
