Churn, Stroke, Burn + PDF

There exists a prophecy of unknown origin that they will fight to the death against the onslaught of piracy to protect the town, dying and ultimately summoning an army of servitors to exact their dying wishes. But that’s silly.

Depending on who you talk to this is either 1 (the writer), or 3 (the editor) new adventures for Dungeon Crawl Classics.  Spanning from a town with (lots of) problems, a point crawl across (and under) the sea, and a depth crawl through the eye of a hurricane. 

There are nightmares of a demon whale that sleeps beneath the waves, threatening to drown us all. 

The entire adventure pulses with the die chain tracking as the storm waxes and wanes. Every encounter table, rumour, and hook table is linked to this die. The adventure turns to chaos as you play it. 


Inside of these 230+ pages you will find:

  • The Town of Churn, its denizens and problems

    • 14 Locations (Inns, Taverns, Dunes, and Temples), each with events on first, and repeat visits. 
    • Daily events which Bring the town together
    • Nightly raids that tear it to shreds
    • Sweet Omens as you leave the town
    • Violent Echoes as you return to what has become of the town 
  • Stroke, a point crawl across and under the ocean

    • 8 Locations (Islands, Abandoned Vessels, Tunnels, and Sea Walls), above and beneath the sea
    • Encounters on the water, and in the tunnels


  • Burn, a depth crawl through the eye of a hurricane

    • An ever reconfiguring maze with over 30^4 configurations
    • A series of encounters, further complicating the mess
    • There are also Knights that breathe salt-water and giant Sea otters and albatross men… it’s a silly place
    • An encounter called “the End”… good luck getting there

Also includes:

  • A Bestiary with over 30 new creatures (and people)
  • Carousing tables
  • The Doomed Denizens, 24 npc each stranger than the last
  • Collections of Towns, Tunnels, Seas, and Drainspeoples.
  • A magic set of armor that locks you beneath the waves
  • A new class, the Grimoire Lurker, that sings songs of doom, recording them in their flesh bound journals
  • The Drowned Language, words when spoken that fill your lungs with salt
  • Loot, linked to the Storm Die, more storm = more treasure
  • An Appendix N of the best content in the world (not sharing here)
  • New Occupations, it’s DCC… you will need level-0s (and a lifepath system)
  • An Appendix on Piracy ranging the pirates that ransack the towns, to the magic flags they bear, woven with the fibers of demonic muscle
  • An Appendix for Storms
  • An Appendix for Shipwrecks

    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
