About the book:
Welcome to the festering swamp. The odd bog. The Seeping Slough. A weird swamp hex-crawl adventure that will have players exploring a dangerous location that contains two dungeons, a village, several unique characters, monsters, and whimsical filth.
This is an adventure for any fantasy or magical post-apocalyptic roleplaying game. Players can be any level from low to middle tier characters, but higher-level characters may find the bog just as fun to explore, albeit with less danger.
This project was created for Zine Quest 3 and as part of a stretch goal two companion zines. Slough: Beasts and Beauties and Slough: Survival Guide.
What’s in the adventure?
- 19 Hexes to explore: Each hex is a mile-wide stretch of swamp, and requires one hour to trudge through.
- 2 Dungeons: Each takes only a page for the map, and a few pages for the content. A witches cabin larger on the inside, and a gaping wound that leads into the behemoth that rots under the swamp.
- 6 Special NPC Stories: There are more than 6 characters in the adventure, but these six are special. They have their own story to explore, their own goals and quests, and really make the adventure feel alive.
- Several factions: Factions ranging from the strange but peaceful villagers to blood worshiping cultists to followers of a plant god.
Physical Edition differences
