Even punk bands are getting in on that 5th Edition action these days–the Dead Milkmen are putting out an RPG module: Lost Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera.

Hey Jack, what’s happening? Rumor around town says you might be headed down to the shore. If you head that way, be sure and stop by the Lost Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera, an official 5E compatible (but system neutral) module released by the Dead Milkmen. Yeah, those Dead Milkmen. There’s even a trailer that features the sweet bass line from Bitchin’ Camaro, the adventure’s namesake song.

Titled the Lost Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera, the Dead Milkmen’s newest adventure promises adventure for all, no matter the system, though it’s clearly intended for 5th Edition. It starts when a monstrous seabird terrorizes the hamlet of Tiny Town and the adventurers are called in to help Mistress Brownnose.

In order to placate the beast, the players will have to adventure through some familiar locales, like the Swamp of Desire, or the Life-Is-Shit Boneyard where they might find the Burrow Owlbear and the secret tomb contained inside: the Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera.

Lost Tomb of the Bitchin’ Chimera is a stand-alone adventure for characters levels 3 to 5, and is written by Andrew Ervin, who is better known for Burning Down George Orwell’s House, who wrote the adventure for three friends before a Dead Milkmen concert, now it has taken on a life of its own, the band and publisher have gotten involved. Bitchin’ Chimera is illustrated by Justin Sirois, who wrote the Last Book of Baghdad as well as Dungeon Dealer. Look for it soon on a Kickstarter near you. In the meantime, check out the official character sheet below.
