A pleasant surprise

****( )

I had my hesitations about running this after Assault on the Wound, but I enjoyed the game in spite of my expectations.

The combats are reasonably challenging, particularly at lower levels. The narrow corridors and lack of maneuverability force the party into interesting tactical decisions. The final encounter had the party positively seething as they finally overcame it. A true challenge for their level, without being blatantly overwhelming.

There is not a large amount of opportunity for roleplay in this scenario, but what little is there fits naturally and even caught my group off guard.

Standard dungeon crawl

***( )( )

Pretty average dungeon crawl. There are some interesting storyline elements which sadly never make it to the players. Pretty good if you're into that sort of thing.

Standard Dungeon crawl

***( )( )

I found nothing innovative with this scenario. A standard dungeon crawl with standard traps and monsters. Some roleplay elements for a crawl is nice, but they are minor and easy.

I would have liked something unique and new, but for a 3 tier scenario is alright.

Good variety, but slightly easy.

***( )( )

I ran this in tier 1-2.

Due to the fact that this was a Season 1 scenario, it doesn't assume you have five or six PCs in the group. With a larger party, the challenges (especially the last one, if you've got an optimized party) aren't as tough as they were likely intended to be.

That said, I loved the atmosphere and the variety of elements in the adventure.

Full of Nice Touches


The author of this scenario deserves kudos. This could have been a completely recycled dungeon crawl, but is a true adventure that happens to take place in a space-limited location.

There are places where he plays with default gamer assumptions, places where either talking or the sword can win the day, and he even included rules for the coolest game of dominos ever. He hits that balance of showing where a trap was or must have been at one time for those without rogue skills, but doesn't then make it easily bypassable.

There were places in the background that I would have loved a little more elaboration (what can you do with Season 1's wordcount?), but the introduction was well written enough that a GM that cares about that stuff or has players that do can write it in himself.
