The Corruption of Pelursk – Pocket Dungeon Pack

The Corruption of Pelursk Pocket Dungeon Colour CoverThe Corruption of Pelursk is a system-agnostic tabletop RPG hexcrawl/dungeon, written by Shel Kahn.

The Isle of Pelursk holds a glowing, steaming, mist-shrouded secret at its heart, and once you’ve entered its clutches it does not want to let you leave.

Designed to fit easily as a sidequest into an ongoing campaign or stand confidently on its own, The Corruption of Pelursk launched on May 15th 2018 as a Pocket Dungeon Pack!

Each pack comes complete with:

  • 60 page 3.5 x 7″ black and white zine
  • 17 x 17″ fabric map of the island
  • twelve 1.5″ fabric hexes
  • a patch of the cover art
  • a mechanical pencil
  • all tucked into a 9 x 4″ canvas zippered pouch.

Also available are the zines themselves, packaged with a black and white map and ready-to-cut hexes at a slightly smaller scale.

Thanks so much to Jason and Tom over for their thorough review of The Corruption of Pelursk on their podcast Fear of a Black Dragon, at The Gauntlet!

Big thanks to Evlyn Moreau for her review of The Corruption of Pelursk over on her blog Le Chaudron Chromatique:

 I like that the spine of the adventure is simple enough to grasp and to remember, after a single read I feel like I could easily run it. The fabric elements add a nice tactile feel that fit with the setting where everything is handcrafted by people.

Shoutout to Robert Carnel for their review of The Corruption of Pelursk over on The New Flesh:

Having presumably tricked their way onto the island the game then shifts to a clever hex-crawler with the island interior being the hex map and then you roll and place cutout hexes onto the map. … The hex crawl is definitely the more interesting part of the scenario and is quite imaginative.

Gaming at the Museum – Combining Gaming with Crafts, Museum Collections and Storytelling

So in addition to running tabletop games twice a day for the kids’ summer camp I ran at the Aga Khan Museum, we supplemented gameplay with a few different things: firstly, we spent time every day in the museum’s collection and travelling exhibits; we read aloud stories from the Shahnameh; and we did hands on creative exercises that fed into both learning about the museum collection and enhancing the gaming experience.
