The THIRD Psychedelic Fantasies module is now available!

Yves Geens has written a fantastic module for low-level D&D characters, entitled The Fungus That Came to Blackeswell.

From the back cover:
Each adventure module in the Psychedelic Fantasies line revels in unconstrained imagination. Every monster, every magic spell, and every magic item is a unique and never-before-seen creation of the author. No orcs, fireballs, or +1 swords will be found within. Leave the familiar behind to explore hitherto undreamed of wonders…
Compatible with every old school version of the original fantasy role-playing game.

"How big is the module?"

The module is 16 pages long, and its font is 9-point Times New Roman. The module is 11" tall and 4.25" wide. It will fit in your back pocket.

"So what's it all about?"

The inside of the detached cover has the map of the subterranean village of Blackeswell. It's a site-based module. No quests or plots. The word "Fungus" is in the title for good reason. This is a creepy, mushroomy, fungusy adventure. If you are like me, you love that squishy, slimy, over-ripe botanic feel of lots of vile, rotting fungus in your D&D. This module has you covered. This is the best, most original fungus module of all time. It gave me some shudders. This is definitely the scariest of the three Psychedelic Fantasies modules.

"Where are the photographs?"
Nowhere. My digital camera isn't working, but it's not a big deal. The Fungus That Came to Blackeswell looks just like the previous two Psychedelic Fantasies modules.

"Does it have any art?"

NO. To keep the price lower, none of the modules in the Psychedelic Fantasies line have any art. These are not works of art. They are utilitarian modules meant to be inflicted upon your players.

Why buy one module when you can buy two for twice the price, or (even better) three for thrice the price? Beneath the Ruins and Within the Radiant Dome are both still available. They make a nice set.
