Beyond the Silver Scream

You and dozens of your closest friends put down the bong and fill your jeans and leather-pants pockets with quarters. But tonight, you’re not heading for the arcade. You’re headed for the old downtown theater (the one that shows naughty movies at midnight) to see the newest horror flick: “Screaming Sorority Girls from Planet Playtex”.

Beyond the Silver Scream, written and published by Forrest Aguirre, is a 0-level funnel that takes your typical 70's or 80's teen punks into the high-octane adventure that is Dungeon Crawl Classics.

Not only does this adventure offer occupation tables for modern teen PCs, but it offers the Dimensional Dogs as a complete patron.

The adventure is fairly linear, but is filled with the sort of schlocky goodness one would expect from the basic idea. In fact, the cover illustration tells you all you need to know...although the interior illustrations are fun, too. If you watched any teen horror flicks in the 70s or 80s, you know exactly how this should be run. Extra points if you can get Ferris Bueller's Day Off or The Breakfast Club into the action.

The author has mentioned how cool it would be to print this on acetate as a booklet. I have considered trying to do this, although double-sided printing would be hard to read, and I am not sure how well the acetate would fold. Still, the final product would be cool to have.
