The Village of the Living Dolls: An Adventure for Alone Against Fear

The Village of the Living Dolls is an adventure for Alone Against Fear and is created by Anna Pashchenko and Andrea Sfiligoi. After the events in Alone Against Fear your character finds out their uncle is missing and volunteers to find him. Their search leads them to the town of Harrowood which has been cursed.

There are two differences in this adventure from the base game. The first is that the map of the town is already created and the second one is that you have to track time. Also on both the map and the timeline there are numbers. These numbers are for specific events. When you reach a number you must read the corresponding event first before doing anything else. I didn’t bother looking for a printable map or timeline and just created my own. If you wish to use them the links will be down below.

I think I enjoyed this adventure more than the original as the story seemed to keep me more engaged. It helped that all the monsters made sense with the story. There were dolls, toys like rubber dinosaurs and plush, as well as monsters made out of candy. I enjoyed learning about the town and how it became what it currently is, as I made my way through it looking for Uncle Phil.

My character Sam encountered vampire unicorn plush, rubber dinosaurs, an earless plush hare, a giant baby made out of sugar and candy and dolls. So many dolls. She even had a doll that followed her around until the end. She escaped a house filled with human teeth floating in gum but unfortunately lost her shoes there. She was cocooned in another house by rubber caterpillars and snakes. She managed to escape her cocoon and even found something very useful. She eventually found her uncle and managed to set him and many other people free from the curse.

The map of Harrowood with the path Sam took.

Besides this adventure there is also a second adventure called The Coming of the Dark Templars which I have not played yet but I hope to play in the next few weeks.
