The Black Dahlia Murder Have a Verminous RPG

The Black Dahlia Murder Have a Verminous RPG

Given that I managed to hold onto my virginity for 7/8ths of high school, it’s somewhat surprising that I never really got into RPGs. I’m not so sad that I missed out on a social experience with my fellow dorks, ’cause I had plenty of those regardless thanks to metal, comic books, genre movies, etc. But a friend recently made thousands of dollars selling his old Magic: The Gathering cards, and that I am sorry I missed out on.

ANYWAY, I mention it because The Black Dahlia Murder’s new album, Verminous, comes in many (many, many, MANY) various physical editions, one of which includes a Dungeons & Dragons-compatible RPG module called Verminous: Depths of Drasted. According to the product description…

“The ultimate way to experience Verminous! Blast the album as you and your party explore and battle your way through the ruined kingdom from the cover of Verminous and discover the Depths Of Drasted! A completely original Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition compatible RPG module based off the title track and album cover by the low-brow, heathens at Dungeon Punx featuring creatures, maps and art by Nerdgore. This role playing experience has been carefully crafted to please complete beginners and experienced gamers alike (we recommend picking up a Dungeons And Dragons 5th Edition Players Handbook if you have not previously played).”

So if you’re into that kinda thing, you should, y’know. Pre-order one for yourself.

Verminous comes out April 17 on Metal Blade. You can check out the title track here. The Black Dahlia Murder launch a tour with Testament, Municipal Waste, and Meshiaak on 4/20. Dates are below. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 7 at 10 a.m. local time.
