Orcs! A High Octane Adventure is now available for pre-order!
Orcs is a high-octane adventure (duh!) for four to six 3rd level characters, set in Hubris: A World of Visceral Adventure (which uses the awesome Dungeon Crawl Classics ruleset). Inspired by Mad Max: Fury Road and Snowpiercer, the adventure begins with the PCs on a train, traveling the Great Plains of Unbidden Sorrow towards the Land of Perpetual Stone and Mire when it is beset by an Orc raid! The group must make their way up to the engine car (or they can just hop off and take their chances out in the open… yeah, good luck with that), battling orcs and their horrible abominations.
The adventure doesn’t have a map, instead it uses playing cards to generate the map at random. Each time a GM runs it, not only will the adventure be different based on player decisions, the map itself will be different. Many of the rooms have random events that occur to spice things up even more. It even includes a new Hubris/DCC class, the Gunslinger!
I love the idea. How much work do you think it would be to run it in 5e? I’m familiar with DCC but have never played it. Thanks!
Not too much. It’s about as much work as converting 3.5. You can easily make judgement calls:)
