In New York City, a massive monster is destroyed by a subway train… and its surviving reptilian companion can speak English.
In Columbia, a scientist crawls up from the depths of the Earth, bringing news of a miraculous new mineral power source… and demons below.
In Texas, a convicted murderer is spared at the last minute by an international conglomerate… which wants to organize an expedition to the centre of the Earth, with him as a guide. Because like the scientist, he’s been there.
The whole team is headed straight to Hell.Those who have persevered through my waffle for long-enough, will be well-aware that one of my "holy grails" for roleplaying is to send a party of adventurers on a rescue mission to the depths of Hell.
Why haven't I run that scenario yet? Because I want it to be just right. I know I'll only get one crack at it, so everything has to go according to plan.
In the meantime I shall continue to accumulate inspirational source material, like this latest offering from Storm King Comics based on an idea by horrormeister John Carpenter (which previously gave us Graveyard Moon).
Issue one of John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction: Hell is out this week.
