The Dark Spiral, softback adventure for The Strange, by Bruce R. Cordell
“Spiral dust is an incredible high. Wonderful. Transcendent. Orgasmic. That’s what users claim, eyes wide to reveal blue fractals instead of irises. Spiral dust addiction is on the rise. But why? Who is the Dustman who deals this strange substance from the shadows? And why do heavy spiral dust users tend to disappear without a trace?
The Dark Spiral is a multi-part adventure for The Strange. Player characters are tasked by the Estate, a secretive organization pledged to protect the Earth, to shut down a local dealer of spiral dust. Their mission takes them farther than they expected when the trail leads to alternate, limited worlds called recursions where the rules of reality are different.
Game masters can intermix secondary Estate missions (in any order) with the main story arc of the adventure to create a mini-campaign. The Dark Spiral introduces players to the wonders of translating between alternate worlds of The Strange and showcases the narrative structure of the game.
In addition to introducing new locations not covered in The Strange corebook, The Dark Spiral offers new creatures, characters, and items to add to any campaign.”
