Music From the Shudder Mountains

I think Dungeon Crawl Classics #83: The Chained Coffin is my favorite D&D adventure. Yes, I know it's technically Dungeon Crawl Classics, but it's all D&D to me. I haven't actually ran the adventure for DCC, but I did run it using 5th edition.

More than just an adventure, it's a setting. Well it is, if you have the boxed set. I most definitely do.  I also have Dungeon Crawl Classics #83.1 Tales of the Shudder Mountains  and I'm excited that Dungeon Crawl Classics #83.2 Death Among the Pines is coming out at Gen-Con.

There's just something about Appalachian D&D that appeals to me. I want the setting, the Shudder Mountains, to be a part of more games I run. I've always had a healthy respect for mountain culture (though I can't stand modern redneck culture) and my family was a part of that just a few generations ago.

In anticipation of picking up DCC 83.2 I've decided to read of the Shudder Mountains material again. I like to listen to music while reading so I've decided to share my Shudder Mountains mix.


  1. Awesome stuff! If I may...I also recommend Steve'n'Seagulls' take on Sabotage from the AV Club last year. Has a feel that's probably more cajun than mountain, but a lot of fun...!

    1. I like that one too, but yeah it's not very hillbilly.

  2. Something about mountain culture is very magical indeed. Michael Curtis captured it really well in this setting.
