Desperation of the Hungry + PDF

The heavy rains are spoiling the crops across the region around Stennard. The invasive corruption has infected new births with strange afflictions and malignant growths.


Famine has taken hold in the region around Stennard. Desperation and anger are rising. Recently, Ohlnicks Muttwrangler has been the target of this frustration. Most know his stead is full of well-fed canines. Some are demanding he give up his pack so they can fill their bellies, particularly those who’ve grown tired of mashed typha root and cranberries.

Furious that both the Constable and the Protectorate refuse to intervene, a violent upstart named Allor Onehanded has decided to take matters in hand. He gathered a small gang of the young and volatile to seize some of the Muttwrangler’s dogs. He will not be satisfied by offers of bread or mash. He intends to feed on meat tonight.

About the book:

Desperation of the Hungry is a DCC RPG compatible introductory encounter for 8-12 0-level characters or 4-6 1st level characters. It should take 1.5-2 hours to complete. The encounter takes place at the edge of the town of Stennard, with the action focused on the Muttwrangler House. Having a copy of The Stennard Courier Vol. 1 can enrich the experience, but is not essential to running this encounter. Instead, this encounter can be placed in any town or village at a house by a stream.

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.
