Now updated to 3.5 rules!

Remember the golden days of roleplaying, when adventures were underground, NPCs were there to be killed, and the finale of every dungeon was the dragon on the 20th level? Well, those days are back. Dungeon Crawl Classics feature bloody combat, intriguing dungeons, and no NPCs who aren't meant to be killed. Each adventure is 100% good, solid dungeon crawl, with the monsters you know, the traps you fear, and the secret doors you know must be there somewhere.

In Idylls of the Rat King, goblin bandits are once again attacking the silver caravans, killing innocent miners and stealing cargo. The goblins have taken up residence in an abandoned mine northwest of Silverton. Someone must get rid of them. But this is no ordinary abandoned mine. It was deliberately barricaded generations ago when the Gannu family, founders of Silverton, discovered an unspeakable evil on its lowest levels. And these are no ordinary goblins, for the curse of the Gannu family courses through their veins...

This 3.5 edition of the classic adventure module is completely updated to the latest edition. Idylls of the Rat King received an Honorable Mention for Best Adventure in the 2003 GenCon Ennie awards.

Dungeon Crawl Classics can be inserted easily into any fantasy setting.

If you enjoy this adventure, be sure to look for the rest of the Dungeon Crawl Classics line! This is only one of many great adventures, such as DCC #5: Aerie of the Crow God, which received a nomination for Best Adventure in the 2004 ENnie Awards. You can find more information at
