Sanctum Secorum Episode #20 Companion: Tarzan of the Apes

The Sanctum Secorum Episode #20 Companion: Tarzan of the Apes was written by David Baity, Bob Brinkman, Daniel J Bishop, Carl Bussler, and Eric Hoffman. Additional concept by Ethan Nicholle. Art is by D. W. Miller, Mellon, Todd McGowan, and Bearmageddon News Network. 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 20: Tarzan of the Apes, which discussed the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The featured adventure was The Treasure Vaults of Zadabad by Carl Bussler and Eric Hoffman.

Disclosure: I wrote material for this Episode Companion. In addition, an adventure I wrote, The Mysterious Valley, was discussed in this episode.

Within you will find:

Adventure Supplement

Tomb of Khaemhet: This is an additional area to explore, written by Eric Hoffman and Carl Bussler, to supplement The Treasure Vaults of Zadabad.

"The Tomb of Khaemhet was created by Stormlord Publishing as a part of the Treasure Vaults of Zadabad and was eventually cut due to size constraints. Eric Hoffman and Carl Bussler of Stormlord have graciously allowed us to bring you this previously unseen content."

Campaign Tools

Tropical Diseases: Not content to let your adventurers die of hypothermia or contract parasitic familiars, author David Baity provides three diseases to kill them in the tropics: River Blindness (Onchocerciasis), Sleeping Disease (Trypanosomiasis), and Snail Fever (Schistosomiasis).


The Jungle Born: Author David Baity provides a class for those characters who were raised by apes. Note that Tarzan of the Apes would be an exceptional individual, even given this class's abilities. First off, his primal roar is generally a cry of victory rather than a pre-combat action. Also, Tarzan taught himself to both read and write English.

Men and Magicians

Jungle Tribesmen: Bob Brinkman provides statistics for Cannibals, Hunters, and Shamans.


Bearantula: "A horrific hybridization of spider and bear", given statistics by Bob Brinkman (from a concept by Ethan Nicolle), this is not a creature from Tarzan of the Apes. It would fit into Another Fine Myth, perhaps (and see also here).


Tarzan: A write-up of Tarzan, by Daniel J. Bishop, modified from a blog post. Another being inspired by Tarzan, Zanatar, can be found in The Mysterious Valley: "The legendary Man-Ape is the child of explorers slain by dinosaurs in the middle valley, and raised by the Migjoyon. As a result, he has become an almost godlike warrior of great stature."

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.
