THE HELL BLACK COINS is a dark fantasy campaign outline suitable for any fantasy roleplaying system.
Note, this is not a complete scenario, but a detailed back story and outline with 11 chapters ready for you to expand and populate.
The world has gone mad. Gold, silver and copper coins are affected by a terrible magical curse which instantly turns them into unuseable Hell Black coins. Treasuries become useless, and kingdoms threaten to collapse. Through the chaos move strange red-robed priests and high above fly bat-winged orcs, sowing discord and spreading the curse. Can the adventurers identify the powerful extra-planar entities behind this outbreak and restore the world to order?
This campaign outline presents 11 chapters and 4 side quests, describing a complete epic story. Each chapter is 1 to 2 pages, giving the Gamemaster sufficient back story and locations to expand to a full scenario. No game statistics are provided, instead Gamemasters are encouraged to use monsters and magic appropriate to the system used for play. Each chapter is illustrated with a depiction of the Hell Black Coins.
Author Geoff Gillan is the mastermind behind the legendary campaign Horror on the Orient Express, as well as numerous other scenarios for Call of Cthulhu, Stormbringer and Convicts & Cthulhu. Here he unleashes a new and complete vision for a dark fantasy campaign of cursed coinage and dark entities.
