Dungeon Crawl Classics Horror: #8 Night of the Bog: Horror
The alligator infested waterways of the Twilight Marsh harbor a mystery. Last year a child went missing for a week, before being found deep within the marshlands. So far from home, that it was unimaginable as to how she could have gotten there. Despite being questioned, Little Idris said nothing. She only smiled. You see, Little Idris has a secret…But those events of last year refuse to remain buried, and something ancient has been released in the swamp. Strange cries have been heard in the darkness, indistinct shapes have been seen among the mangroves, and local children tell whispered stories of a lurker, coming for them out of the darkness. A horror that threatens the lives of all it encounters. Whatever it is, it is not human. Whatever it is, it kills without mercy. Whatever it is, it must be stopped. Can you survive… the Night of the Bog Beast?"
The player characters find themselves in a shadow-darkened swamp which guards even darker secrets. The module puts the PCs in a race against time as the number of victims begins to climb the longer that they spend in pursuit of the truth of the horror that has come to the village of Goz’s Blight. A twisted tale inspired by the stories found in such classic magazines as Creepy and Eerie, evoking that stark, black and white feel.
