This a Double Feature of DCC #67 - Sailors on the Starless Sea and DCC Day #3 - Chanters in the Dark. Sailors is an iconic DCC module, and Chanters is it's sequel.

Sailors on the Starless Sea:

Since time immemorial you and your people have toiled in the shadow of the cyclopean ruins. Of mysterious origins and the source of many a superstition, they have always been considered a secret best left unknown by the folk of your hamlet.

But now something stirs beneath the crumbling blocks. Beastmen howl in the night and your fellow villagers are snatched from their beds. With no heroes to defend you, who will rise to stand against the encircling darkness? The secrets of Chaos are yours to unearth, but at what cost to sanity or soul?

An introductory adventure for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Roleplaying Game, Sailors on the Starless Sea pits a mob of 0-level adventurers against the legacy of the Chaos Lords and their corrupted hordes. Delving beneath the crumbling ruins, the characters discover ancient crypts, a starless sea, and an ancient ziggurat, where death and treasure await in equal measure!

Chanters in the Dark:

The subterranean river thunders into the darkness...and there, before it plunges into the Abyss, the ship crashes onto the rocks. Stranded on the dark stony beach, the PCs must deal with beast-men, strange growths, and the Caretaker if they wish to escape. Deep below Aerth, the Chanters in the Dark plot against the surface world. The PCs must uncover their mysteries if they ever wish to see the sun again.

Note: Please do not sign up if you can't stay for the whole thing. These will be shortened as things are and there will be breaks including a meal break. Please bring pencils and whatever figures you might like for the second half. Please download the quick start rules here -

Please understand how to convert a 0th level character to 1st level - or at least read it so you know what questions to ask. For the first half of this you'll be playing 0th level characters and you'll need to be able to bring you characters to 1st level during the meal break. If you’re interested in playing a caster (Cleric, Wizard, or Elf) and would like to have a larger selection of spells than what will be in the quick start guides that I bring, please bring a copy of the core rulebook if you have one.

Content Advisory!
I'm looking for players to describe what happens in battle. There may be some provocaitve bits.
