October marks the release of a spooky new mini-adventure path from the twisted minds of Wayward Rogues. Whispers of the Dark Mother pits characters from the small trading town of Brighton against the sinister cult of Shub-Niggurath, The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young! Characters will begin their adventuring careers after arriving in Brighton. There they take on an innocuous task that leads them down the trail towards cosmic horror. This six-chapter quest takes characters from level 1 to level 7, and is perfect for GM’s seeking an alternative opening act to other published adventure paths.
Utilizing material from The Guide to the Cult of Shub-Niggurath, players start in the Town of Brighton, voyage to the cut-throat alleys of Griffonport, and navigate the intrigue-filled corridors of the capitol city, before facing the legendary Beast of Bright Mountain Valley.
Chapter One: Seeds of Evil begins the character’s journey against the foul cult. Written by Robert Gresham, “Seeds” is a sandbox-style adventure that catapults the PC’s into the dangerous wilds surrounding Brighton, and sets the stage for further installments of the adventure path. Included in this book is an updated overview of The Grey Maiden, Brynndell’s chief goddess, by Ewan Cummins, and a new monster, the arcane Gate Willow, by Jarrett Sigler.
Seeds of Evil comes out Friday, October 21, 2016, just in time for a session of Halloween Horror. Each following chapter will release 2 weeks later, culminating in December. The fight against the Dark Mother has begun and Brynndell needs heroes to protect her!
To prepare your group for this approaching threat, The Players Guide to Whispers of the Dark Mother will release the same day as Seeds of Evil. This Pay-What-You-Want pdf provides several new options for characters including new feats, spells, and traits to help immerse your PC into the horror of the adventure. Also inside is a new prestige class by Rodney Sloan, the Dust Warden. This specialized paladin of the Grey Maiden devotes his life to eradicating undead for the psychopomp ushers of his goddess. Get this guide and gear up against the Black Goat before it’s too late!
