BLACKOUT in Crater Valley is a unique RPG adventure inspired by VHS era slasher films, 80's nostalgia, DIY music subculture and Cthulhu Mythos horror utilizing the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG system but easily adaptable to the Old School RPG system of your choice.
You aren't heroes. You are a group of small town high school misfits, lifelong friends from the town of Crater Valley. You've spent your whole life chafing at the shackles of this town and you can't wait to get out. Tonight is your last Halloween before you head off to join the rat race and you and your friends plan to make it one to remember. Everyone has arrived, except Julie- the class sweetheart who seems to be able to make friends with anybody. She should be here by now, she just lives at the end of the block. You are just about ready to leave without her when suddenly from the direction of her house you hear the sound of breaking glass and Julie's voice cry out into the night "Somebody HELP MEEE! PLEEEEEAASE!".
Before you can even process what's just happened all of the lights in town go out simultaneously and the air is filled with the loud barks and growls of what sounds like every dog in town braying in unison. Will you unlock the dark secrets of Crater Valley's history and rescue Julie from a force beyond death?
Blackout in Crater Valley is a '0 level funnel' which means players will create between 2 and 4 low level characters and try to survive the perils that await them as they attempt to rescue their friend Julie. As they unlock the mysteries of Crater Valley they will encounter opportunities to advance in power significantly, however they will soon learn that great power often comes at a price...
