The Bog God's Champion

The Bog God’s Champion is a free unofficial Dungeon Crawl Classics adventure by Paul Wolfe, published by Mystic Bull Games. It is available on the Mystic Bull Games website. The adventure makes use of the “Patron Monday” feature on the Mystic Bull blog, particularly (but not exclusively) the patron Myrddin.

There are a couple of small errors and omissions (Con instead of Stamina; specifics of Mohgd’s disease; what happens if you follow the corpse candles in the swamp?) but nothing that a good judge couldn’t handle.  Overall, what you get is an interesting, flavorful location-based adventure with a storyline that the PCs can engage in however they so desire. The adventure could easily be used in a Crawling Under a Broken Moon or Mutant Crawl Classics setting as well, if the judge were willing to do minimal work.

You could just as easily place it on a Venusian swamp in Crawljammer or some out-of-the-way portion of the Purple Planet.

Even if you didn’t want to run the adventure as written, it can easily be cannibalized for spare parts. The rules for weather and moving through the bog, the creatures, and the seven interesting magical items could become part of the judge’s toolkit with ease.

And, again, it is free.

  1. This module has some short and sweet Wilderness Travel rules akin to a hexcrawl which I find useful. Some nice tables that you could model after for weather and encounters, too. Easily repurposed!
