From publisher blurb:
Escape from station 17 is a 0-Level funnel adventure, set in a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi version of our earth. It is for use with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game (or any OSR system) and has been designed as a low prep, quick-to-start adventure.
Included within this pack are 25 premade 0-Level Characters, a one sheet adventure (both sides of an A4 sheet of paper), maps, and statted NPCs/Monsters relevant to the adventure. Additionally; the entire map has been designed to fit onto a single 23x26 vinyl battlemat.
Earth, year 202X. The planet has been taken over by a technologically advanced multidimensional empire known as the ‘Amalgamate’. These fearsome, humanoid creatures conquered the world in only nine hours, and have implemented a violent, unforgiving police-state.
Since the usurpation of earth’s control, our new alien overlords have been slowly draining earth of all of it’s water and sending it back to the Gryx Border-World. And have set about converting humanity into Amalgamate with the use of extremely long, painful and torturous operations (performed with no anasthesia).
Amalgamate conversions are carried out in ‘Alteration Stations’; prison compounds where once-proud humans are fed grey sludge and packed into tiny cells. These poor prisoners are only permitted outdoors once every two months and are not told when their ‘alteration day’ will come.
