Back in 2001 or 2002, I honestly can’t remember which, we were in the thick of our 7th Sea (1st edition) campaign. It was October and I proposed a Halloween themed “one-shot” for the group. Unfortunately, this “one-shot” took all of about 4 or 5 sessions to actually complete, something I’ve become a bit notorious for since then.
This year, over on the Facebook Explorer’s of Théah group, I proposed everyone submit a scenario for Halloween as a community project. While this wasn’t the first of my old adventures that came to mind — that one involved a murderous redcap stalking the students of a Castillain university (“Remember the tooth!”) — I settled on this one because of the 2015 film, the Witch.
After having seen that movie, I think I would run this one completely differently than I did before. In fact, I think this would have made a great adventure for Witch Hunter: the Invisible World, All for One: Regime Diabolique, or the Savage World of Solomon Kane with only a bit of tweaking.
So if you and your group are getting together to roll some dice for Halloween fun, I offer this short adventure scenario for your consideration: Whisper on a Black Wind. See if you can make it the horrific one night affair it was intended to be.
A quick shout out and thank you to Dyson Logos for his amazing work and making some of it available to use. If anyone wants a copy of the unaltered version of the map used in the adventure, you can find it here.
