"Dark times has fallen upon the Storm Wolf Tribe. Once edible fruits and plants had
become poisonous and game that was docile turn into viciously aggressive
malformed monstrosities. The source is an abbey used as a vault for dark
knowledge way too harmful to be left loose on the world. Something horrible has
happened to the kind yet weird monks living in the abbey and it seems to be
ancient and beyond evil. Is up to the tribe's most brave warriors to find out and
stop this force before it engulfs the Storm Wolf tribe in its darkness."
"It Came from the Scriptorium is a horror dungeon crawl adventure for 3 to 5 PCs, using the Barbaric! sword & sorcery rules ruls and fully compatible with The Sword of Cepheus or any other 2d6 OGL fantasy game. The default setting is the Steel Borderlands, a wilderness distant from the settlements composing the civilized lands of kingdoms and empires but it will fit very easily into almost any sword & sorcery setting.
The players should be aware that due the horror nature of his adventure that their PCs mortality rather will be high."
' It Came from the Scriptorium' By Ivan Cantero Muñoz "The Fictionaut" is a solid adventure for the Barbaric rpg & its a rather nasty horror adventure. But its a fun one. And while it only clocks in at twenty three pages of horror goodness I'd say that this is an adventure for experienced Barbaric players. Barbaric is a full on Sword & Sorcery 2d6 supplement rules for 'The Sword of Cepheus' Rpg.
And now back to ' It Came from the Scriptorium' By Ivan Cantero Muñoz "The Fictionaut". This is a lethal little adventure about the goings on at an isolated monastery that has a whole tribes of Wolf barbarians who live nearby. They're bothered by the haunted goings on at said monastery. Now Ivan Cantero Muñoz "The Fictionaut" seems to be a fan of Bruce Campbell vs the Army of Darkness because this adventure is a back handed love letter to that cultclassic movie.
Forbidden books, undead demons, plenty of undead, and more make ' It Came from the Scriptorium' a must get for the fans of those films. But this is a lethal little number of an adventure and quite perfect for a mid Winter horror game. ' It Came from the Scriptorium' would work quite nicely as a 'The Sword of Cepheus' Rpg. one shot quite well.
Where ' It Came from the Scriptorium' shines is when this adventure is used with Barbaric! Then its full on barbarians vs demon undead in the monastery from Hell.
