Dungeon Crawl Classics #36:
Talons of the Horned King
1E Rules Edition (Gen Con 2009 Special)
An Adventure for Character Levels 3-5
Remember the good old days, when adventures were underground, NPCs were
there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the
20th level? Those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics adventures don't
waste your time with long-winded speeches, weird campaign settings, or
NPCs who aren't meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid
dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you remember, and
the secret doors you know are there somewhere.
Traveling through the frozen wastelands of the north, the heroes arrive
in a town in turmoil. A nobleman has disappeared, and the town is danger
of being attacked by nomadic creatures called kra-dhan. To help the town,
the heroes travel through narrow, icy ravines to a druidic circle of stone
known as the Talons of the Horned King, which is believed to be the source
of the townís problems. There they discover a sinister tribe of
kra-dhan - and the ruins of a spaceship buried beneath the Talons!
