Against the Cult of the Bat God

The Lonely Coast’s most remote village, Oakhurst broods under the dark boughs of the Tangled Woods. Rumours of incest, murder and vile rites during the black of night surround its insular citizens. It is a place most wise people avoid as the very air seems inhospitable to strangers.

Yet in the rumours is a grain of truth, for something dark does indeed stir in the shadow haunted trees and hunched homes of Oakhurst. An ancient evil, hungry with the thirst for blood, awakens from its eons long sleep. As disappearances mount and the Lonely Coast can no longer turn a blind eye to the blight that is Oakhurst, heroes are called upon to investigate the foul rumours and mysteries that plague the village. As the search for the truth intensifies, they may find themselves the next victims of a rising, bloodthirsty evil.  Can they survive Against the Cult of the Bat God?

Although designed for The Lonely Coast, a free mini-campaign setting available from Raging Swan Press, Against the Cult of the Bat God is simple to insert into almost any GM’s home campaign.

Praise For Against the Cult of the Bat God

“This is the first Raging Swan Press material I have ever purchased, and I have to say if the quality of their other modules and supplements is as good as this they’re going to be one of my favorite 3PP! The level of detail is superb, with great descriptions of characters and settings that give wonderful atmosphere to the game.”

–Laurial (five stars)

 “This is the best gothic horror (not splatter/dark fantasy, but true GOTHIC HORROR) module I’ve read in ages. If the spirit of the best Ravenloft modules had a love child with Raging Swan Press’ excellent quality control, production values and attention to/level of detail – this would be it. This module is ridiculously good if you have even the slightest soft spot for horror. Each sentence, each paragraph BREATHES atmosphere, mood – and it’s incredibly easy to run to boot! This module is one of the best modules currently available for Pathfinder and can stand alongside the works of giants of horror like Nicholas Logue, Richard Pett or ascendant masters like Tim Hitchcock or Tom Phillips, all while having its very own style, its very own, distinguished voice.”

–Endzeitgeist (five stars + seal of approval + best of 2014)

 “I really can’t recommend it enough.”

–UncleRiotous (five stars)

“With plenty of traps and an abundance of mad inbred cultists to contend with, this is a classic and creepy adventure with plenty of brooding atmosphere.”

–Megan Robertson (five stars)
