It all comes down to this: the final titanic battle, here at the End of Time.

The Black Broo of Dyskund Curse of the Bone

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

  1. I’ve caved in under the pressure and decided to raise my head above the parapet and make my vote. I do think that at this stage, I should be going into a booth, with a little stubby pencil on the end of a string, so no-one can see what I’m doing … but no matter …

    CURSE OF THE BONE
    Marcus L Rowland had a tremendous track record of producing really entertaining and engaging scenarios for WHITE DWARF and this was no exception. In many ways, it was a fairly conventional set up, and on the page, it appears fairly straight forward, but there are clever elements and red herrings built into the clues that only become apparent when the scenario is played. The cards found in the glove-compartment provide avenues of enquiry that lead to eventual col-de-sacs, the revelation of the perpetrator is genuinely creepy.

    An excellent suburban horror that deserves to win!

  2. Runequest scenarios were very rare in white dwarf so the Black Broo has done quite well to get this far, the story, npcs and art are brilliant but the map is like a mad woman’s knitting and is quite unreadable. So I agree with Dirk the Dice, Curse of the Bone shows how intricate scenarios had become by the mid 80s

  3. Both excellent scenarios but ultimately Curse of the Bone gets my vote. Like many of the best scenarios it is a simple idea but when played it seems far from simple.It passes the ultimate test of any scenario – it comes alive when actually played. There’s also a feel of genuine horror about it. And if nothing else it makes me feel better about some of the terrible used cars I’ve bought over the years. They don’t seem quite as bad by comparison.
