"You can never have too many cannibal degenerates or messed-up holiday specials. Once in a while, when the stars align, you can get both in the same package! As a bonus, these are written explicitly for the awesome Weird Frontiers version of Western DCC. The Brimstone Cradle is set on Christmas Day with a good combination of zaniness and potential horror that your gunslingers should enjoy. The Hills That Hunger is a funnel or level 1 adventure that is less zany, and leans into the horror. Just the thing to kick off a new Weird Frontiers campaign!" - Daniel J Bishop
The Brimstone Cradle is a level 2 adventure wherein a blizzard rages in the early hours of Christmas morning and the PCs end up finding a newborn child who needs protection from menacing demons until dawn. It takes some inspiration from films such as 3 Godfathers (1948), Drag Me to Hell (2009), and Evil Dead (1981).
The Hills That Hunger is a versatile module that can be played as either a 0-level funnel or a 1st level adventure. The PCs are called upon to rescue the survivors of a wagon caravan which is suspected to having been burned to the ground by a group of cannibalistic hillbillies. It takes its inspiration from The Hills Have Eyes (1977), Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.
