Abductions in Barncombe


A cosmic horror adventure based around the Bluetspur Domain of Dread. Abductions in Barncombe contains:

  • A 2-3 hour mystery adventure revolving around strange disappearances, mysterious sigils, and a secret locked away in a character's own mind.
  • A setting neutral location easy to place in any campaign world, from Faerun to Barovia and beyond.
  • Three quest hooks to get your table right into the action.
  • Helpful pacing notes to contain the adventure into a single session.
  • Easy to follow location and event notes presented in an accessible and digestible way.

Why get this adventure?

  • You and your table love cosmic horror and mysteries.
  • You want to scare your characters by giving them a secret trapped inside their own mind.
  • You're looking to start a cosmic horror campaign revolving around Bluetspur and the God Brain.
  • Who want your characters to be unwilling to trust their own mind.

To run Abductions in Barncombe, you will need the 5e Core Rulebooks as well as Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft for the vampiric mindflayer stat block.

This adventure has been thoroughly edited by a small team and has hopefully been purged of any errors. That being said, mistakes do get through the cracks! If you find anything, feel free to leave a comment with a page number and the error and I will fix it ASAP.

If you like cosmic horror, consider trying any of my other adventures for purchase here on the DMs Guild.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
