In honor of Free RPG Day, I'm reposting a link to my free 1,001 More Weird and Wacky Adventure Ideas, a collection of adventure seeds that are in many cases just plain weird. I figure that not everyone has access to somewhere that is participating in Free RPG Day, and those folks should't miss out on getting something free, even if it is kind of crappy. :-)
The PDF version can be downloaded from here.
The ePub version can be downloaded from here.
I hope that people find as much enjoyment from reading and using this as I had creating it. Happy Adventuring!
Also, don't forget to check back at this blog every Wednesday for a new adventure idea on Weird Adventure Wednesday. :-)

|An impressive opening screen for the 19080s
One of the games that arrived was a game from the impressively named software company ULTIMATE PLAY THE GAME called The Staff of Karnath. It was an isometric side-scroller where you played some sort of wizard in a castle trying to collect the pieces of a magical pentacle. You had a number of spells with names like Forthrin and Umphalos, all of which seemed to shoot the same missile out of your hands. Of course the spells all did something different, and this was no doubt done to thwart potential pirates. Cough, cough. The castle was full of all sorts of enemies such was suits of animated armor, witches on brooms, a troll, a floating skull, some weird hopping guy, and many others. We died a lot, and we only ever figured out that the Forthin spell was the main attack spell. Beyond that the mystic arts eluded us. In any case, we played this game a lot without ever getting anywhere, but that didn't really diminish the fun, rather it increased it.

On a steamy day you have a chance meeting with a middle aged entertainer at a gladiator fight. The entertainer tells you that 2 weeks journey to the west, across The Boiling Sea of Contaminated Mouths lay The Forgotten Island of the Crimson Tower. It is rumored that there can be found The Chattering Quartz Girdle of the Witch. But beware, for the entertainer counsels you that The Chelonian Witch of Cannibalism slaughters all who set foot there!

Heavy metal orcs, punk rock elves, chaos, mutation, and madness. What's not to love? Ever since I picked up a copy of the first edition rules to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay at Phantom of the Attic back in 1989, I've been hooked.
