[Dungeon Masters Guild] Perilous Places: The King's Mercy Dungeon Masters Guild

Abandon hope all ye who enter! Can you survive the horrors of the King’s Mercy?

The Dungeon witnessed the torture of innocents, the barbaric inflicting of pain on the guilty, and the pleasure the staff took from it. Acts so depraved that the very fabric of the dungeon could not help but absorb these evils. And so it sits, waiting to share its suffering with anyone that intrudes within.

There are only two things the King’s Mercy knows: humans can be as depraved as the vilest monsters they hunt…. and misery loves company.

Perilous Places: The King’s Mercy is a toolkit for running gripping and terrifying adventures in a dungeon created for torture. This 20 page PDF features:

  • 3 brand new monsters
  • 3 unique magic items
  • the Despair Track, an innovative new mechanic for measuring how the PCs are handling the horrors of the dungeon
Written by Paul Baalham, co-author of Defenders of Midgard, and the Midgard Bonus Bestiary for 4th Edition (both Kobold Press)

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
