Beyond the Silver Scream at Garycon

I am currently taking a short break from stapling and folding my baby . . . yes, that's what I said!

My "baby" is Beyond the Silver Scream, a DCCRPG-compatible 0-level "funnel". Players begin as high school kids in the mid-'70s - early-'80s who go to the local seedy theater to catch the premiere of the new horror flick "Screaming Sorority Girls from Planet Playtex". But the horror isn't confined to the screen! And the special-effects are all-too-real. So take a seat and brace yourself for an adventure where the director isn't the only one doing the cutting!

Art is provided by the outstanding +Matt Hildebrand +James V West +David Lewis Johnson +Nicolò Maioli and +Thomas Gile.

I will have several copies available for sale at Garycon. Cover price is $5, and I will arrange with you to receive a PDF if you buy a physical copy (note: the PDF will not be available until after Garycon). So, see you at Garycon and see you Beyond the Silver Scream!!!



Praise (and cries of terror) for Beyond the Silver Scream:

"WARNING: Contents may daze and/or confuse. Unexpected, Thrilling, Blockbuster fun. Two thumbs up!"

Brendan J. LaSalle, author of Hole in the Sky

"This is the work of the Devil and his minions and should be burned immediately. Jack Chick would be appalled."

The Ghost of Patricia Pulling, inciter of the Satanic Panic

"This made me feel the 'VHS schlockfest' love so much, I felt the need to adjust the tracking."

Adam Muszkiewicz, host of "Drink, Spin, Run"

"More hype and tripe than an '80s Puerto Rican boy band."

Anonymous Critic

"'Beyond the Silver Scream' takes teens of classic roleplaying games' golden age - the 1970s/1980s - into the epic danger of gritty Dungeon Crawl Classics, while providing a unique springboard to your next fantasy campaign. If you want a blast of nostalgia coupled with weird intrigue and action, then buy this module and be prepared for a blast from the past . . . and beyond!"

Julian Bernick, Co-Founder, Minneapolis DCC RPG Society

"It's not every day that the opening line of a module contains the word 'bong'!"

Joseph Goodman, Goodman Games

    1. It will be under my name, Forrest Aguirre. There will not be a "company" name associated with this. Thanks for checking!

  3. This sounds amazing. Will those of us not able to make it to Garycon be able to order it soon? I run games for high school teens. Might be extra funny to them.
