Smoking Wyrm Monograph 2: The Hangman’s Garden

The silhouette of the sheriff stands in the cave entrance above you. "You are accused, and only Justicia can determine your fate now. If you come out the other side, your innocence has been proven and you may go about your business. If you are guilty, then you will not survive the Hangman's Garden!"

So begins this wonderful introductory adventure by Dieter Zimmerman. Dieter—one of the designers of the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG (DCC)—wrote and has been running since at least 2012, when Brian Gilkison, one of the Smoking Wyrm crew, signed up to play Dieter's game at Gen Con. The rest is history—that introduction to the game went on to Brian buying DCC, and then running it for the rest of us at Blind Visionary Publications.  History was made that day! 

We were quite surprised to discover that Dieter's adventure had never been given full publication treatment. We could not be prouder to offer up this wonderful adventure as our second issue of the Smoking Wrym Monograph series. With this issue, we have worked hard with Dieter to bring his concept to life—and make it easy for other judges to run at cons, friendly local gaming stores, and home tables!

The Hangman's Garden is suitable as a funnel, or a first- or second-level adventure. It is a great way to start a campaign, but also works equally well as an interlude. It is well-suited for home tables and for convention tables—indeed, we cannot think of a better way to introduce newcomers to the wonderful world of Dungeon Crawl Classics.

    Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement.

    If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

    If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


    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.
