Deep Dark Wood
THIS IS FOR THE PRINT VERSION OF THE ZINE.
“Be he boar or be he man, he has a single knife. And if you come upon his mind, he’ll end your too short life.”
There was a time that your ancestors knew the forest was to be feared. It was deep and dark. No sun touched the heart of these woods and those that went in were often not seen again. The beasts that ranged there were strange and if any religion was practiced within, it was old, odd, and evil. At least, that’s what the peasants would say, banded together in their small towns for safety or the illusion there of.
This is a tiny hex crawl. There are seven locations you can add into any game you’re running with a narrative that runs throughout. Throw them into the center of the forest in your game world, run it as a simple one shot. or use it for inspiration. Marginally, it is designed for 5E, but the mechanics are light. It’d be easy to tear out the warm bleeding heart of it and use whatever fantasy game system you love most.
Master of the Onyx Tower
*You need the base game for Marching Order to play this delve.
“Drink up, my friends, for we cannae foretell who will survive the night.”
Grunheld slams a frothing pitcher of ale onto the table. The northerner is either a happy drunk or a mean drunk, and there is never any telling which you might get. It looks like you are lucking out tonight, which is good. You don’t have much coin left to spend, and your mug is almost empty.
“That’s right, you southern softbellies. Ever since the Onyx Tower appeared outside of the city walls a fortnight ago, people have been disappearing every eve. The guard won’t talk about it, but each morning, another person fails to return home. Some claim to have seen weird shadowy beasts howling through the streets in the wee hours of the night. Gossip it may be, but I’ve seen stranger things and have no wish to test my luck.”
Take your Rogues to a strange wizard’s tower and pillage everything in sight! Ponder orbs! Deal with fecal covered imp dens! Live your best Rogue life!
“The Master of the Onyx Tower” introduces two new characters- The Northman Berserker and the Wizard’s Apprentice. In addition, it brings you Dusty Balls tavern, for when you get kicked out of your regular watering holes. The greatest thing about Dusty Balls is it has booze to go, so your Rogues never have to adventure sober again!

Listen up, Rogue. You need some ale money and we need some work done. It’s a match made in heaven, if you can pull yourself together long enough to go into a deep dark hole and kill whatever is rustling around down there. Buy your team, outfit ’em with gear, spank their behinds, and get them moving – there’s some ancient evils under the town of Rotbottom that need dealing with. I know you’re not really the hero types, but this town is where your favorite tavern is, so get going.
Marching Order is a solo/co-op Dungeon delve that plays like Choose your own Adventure and Darkest Dungeon’s analog bastard child. You can play on your lonesome or bring some friends together to share in the hilarious misery. It comes with a 112 page rulebook and 140 pages of adventures to take your unlucky Rogues on. In addition, you get a deck of cards to keep track of your Marching Order and all the printable character sheets you need to play.
Get in line, Rogue. There’s coin to be won and drink to be had.
