Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men
 
We slew all the rats
But heck, if the price is right
We'll do it again!
— Greedy McLooter, respected adventurer
The Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game comes with an adventure, I Smell a Rat. And when the delvers have completed that, what then? The GM could design another scenario . . . or you could get Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men.

While giving details would spoil the surprises, it suffices to say that Against the Rat-Men picks up where I Smell a Rat left off. The two are designed to be run back-to-back as a mini-campaign. But although the second adventure invokes aspects of the first to set the scene, it isn't a rerun – it offers new mysteries to solve, new enemies to fight, and new treasures to find.

Important Note: Against the Rat-Men was a stretch-goal item during the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Kickstarter campaign, so if you were a backer – or bought the Dungeon Fantasy Companion, which includes this adventure – you already have this content. Buying it again would be doing us a favor, but not your bank account.

We had lots of fun playtesting this; it's completely useful for GURPS DF :)

Note that the adventure does make extensive reference to the original I Smell a Rat adventure from the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game boxed set. So while — in the broad strokes — the adventure would port great to the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy line, be aware that you can't buy just this PDF by itself and drop it into your GURPS Dungeon Fantasy game without some trouble.

Oh.

I play GURPS in one campaign that has elements of DF (superpowered PCs cleaving legions of foes with a variety of impossible sword and sorcery power-ups), but isn't actually DFRPG.

I'm featuring wererats fairly heavily in my current adventure and I hoped that Against the Rat-Men might have plunderable mechanics or ideas.

Is there any way to buy just I Smell a Rat and Against the Rat-Men without the rest of the DFRPG?

To anyone ...

I was a backer, and I have a digital copy of Against the Rat Men in my downloads file. I have a physical copy of the map for AtRM that was included in my DFRPG package. Am I supposed to have a physical copy of the adventure as well?

Not at this time.

The only reason you would have a physical copy is if you bought the Dungeon Fantasy Companion (or backed a a tier that included the Dungeon Fantasy Companion); the three stretch-goal PDFs were otherwise only available as PDFs.

Oh, there it is in the Companion, thanks! I backed it all, was just wondering, thanks for the reply.

The DFRPG Companion bundles I Smell A Rat with Magic Items and Traps, which I think are good value for any kind of game where a I Smell A Rat and Against the Rat-Men are useful.

Shouldn't the Companion have Against the Ratmen, Magic Items and Traps? I Smell a Rat is in the boxed set already.
