A nice little sidetrek adventure

The Bloody Cauldron by Kromedragon Games

This product is 25 pages long. It starts with a cover, and Credits. (2 pages)

The Bloody Cauldron (7 ½ pages)
This is a sidetrek adventure for 4th level PC's. It starts with a interesting background on a key npc and a adventure summery. There is 8 scene's in this adventure with 7 encounters total. The encounters and scenes are well done and pretty well balanced and written. These are not random encounters but each one is there for a purpose, to the short story that is this adventure. Several of the encounters work for the big bad, while it mentions they work for and was hired by the big bad, it doesn't say why. Which is a minor thing but a little more detail would have been nice. The section ends with a conclusion on what happens after the adventure is over. The conclusion covers some key parts, but is fairly short. I would have liked to have seen it expanded to at least double it's current size, with some plot hooks and advice how to deal with a couple of issues in greater detail.

Appendix (½ page)
This part has a city stat block of where part of the adventure takes place and the stat blocks for a key NPC as well.

Maps (13 pages)
There is one full page image same as the cover. Then there is 6 sets of maps, each blown up for use with miniatures and each map is full color. There is two versions of each map. One of for the players which only has obvious parts marked on it and then one for the GM with all the details listed on it.

It ends with a OGL. (1 pages)

Closing thoughts. The only art is the cover image which is used twice. There is a chrome dragon image as well on the credits page as a game company logo. Editing and layout was pretty good. I didn't notice any obvious editing errors but layout was ok, but could have been better. Mostly some of the page breaks where in odd spots for flow of reading. The adventure it's self I thought was well done and would make a nice little side trek. The PC's can earn brownie points with a local town and if they play their cards right, they could pick up a cohort or even a love interest. The full color maps for mini's was a nice touch, and it was very nice to see a players and GM version of each map. I do wish there would have been non mini versions of the maps as well though. While the product is full color and pretty, you also get a black and white print friendly version as well. Though the maps are still full color.

For a couple of bucks, three to be exact it is well worth the price. Most of my problems with it are minor nitpicks. So what's my rating? Well I am going to settle on a 4 star review. It is a good little side trek adventure well worth the price. It could have used a little more polish, but for a first product of a new company it is good.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
