What Castle Drakenstein is Like

Once again stealing from Jack.

Precis: A funhouse megadungeon run by a horror host.  Mummies, vampires, werewolves, aliens, and human flies all rub shoulders in Frankenstein's lab.

Conspectus: The more-or-less ruined Castle Drakenstein is home to a foppish, capricious lich whose only pleasure in life comes through torturing adventurers; peasants fear to tread in the shadow of the tower; caverns contain fog-bound, haunted forests where the moon is always full; mad scientists have moved in to conduct their hideous experiments; an ancient pharaoh's tomb has been rebuilt, stone by stone, and filled with the appropriate Egyptian horrors; satanic cults hold metal concerts; medusa heads!; Atomic horror monsters made by Frankenstein; technicolor dungeon lighting; regular monsters forced to dress and act the part by the insane Baron;  lots and lots of terrible puns

Taste, Sound, Image: Movie popcorn and Coca-Cola, The Cramps "God Monster," Tales from the Crypt (TV show or comics, your pick).


  1. I absolutely love it. Man. I WANT TO PLAY A GAME THERE!

    Also, the Cramps are one of the best bands I've seen live. You got good taste!

  2. Awesome, of course.

    And RIP Lux.

  3. I've said it before, and I'm saying it again:

    I'd play the HELL out of this game.
