The Dweller in Dreams

SH1 - The Dweller in Dreams is a 0-1st level adventure written by Scott Hill with illustrations by Brett Neufeld (cover), Matt Morrow, Keith Curtis, Rick Hershey, and William McAusland. The publisher is Purple Duck Games.

Disclosure: I have an Editing and a Development credit for this product, and I am a Patreon.

This is a relatively recent release, at the time of this writing, so I will avoid spoilers as much as possible. The adventure makes use of a dreamscape, and begins with the PCs as children. Ian Fleming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is an obvious influence, although it is the darker parts of the movie that inform the adventure.

The Dweller in Dreams is given a full patron write-up herein, which could potentially be used in conjunction with PC or NPC wizards and elves. The adventure suggests four additional hooks for further adventures, and could easily be used in conjunction with Through the Cotillion of Hours and Stars in the Darkness to create a dream-centric theme running behind a Dungeon Crawl Classics campaign.

This adventure could easily be adapted for use with Transylvanian Adventures, Dark Trails, or the Brimstone of Black Powder, Black Magic.

“In Ravenhollow the fog is black, if the Dweller doth catch you, you won’t come back!”

Children’s rhymes, notes from beyond, mysteries and madness are waiting for you in the tiny hamlet of Ravenhollow, where a group of souls have been taken through time and space and left in the bodies of children, to face the peril of the Dweller in Dreams, a demon threatening the realms of all who would foolishly summon it. Dare you try to survive terrifying town, fearsome forest, and harrowing haunted house to defeat the demon Dweller and return to reality?

Get It Here!
