Great art, a fun and simple mechanic to enhance the plot (the AP's), a very exciting monster in the Flame Drakes, a tough big bad, cool side quests, and some non-standard reward possibilities for your characters make this adventure stand out as high quality. I think players will get a kick out of being heros of the vale. The only thing, and I mean the only thing, that limits this from being 5 stars is the odd encounter with the King of the Sprites. It comes off as a little railroady and illogical. However, it is such minor thing and quick fix that this module is still a MUST HAVE.
A lot of good stuff here. A unique kobold compound that meshes well with D0, a duo of interesting and cool new monsters, and a nice smooth plot; all of which adds up to a quality dungeon adventure.
If there are any negatives, they are small. The treasure in some cases seems a bit odd or much, and the art is not as good as the other modules, but neither of these things obscure a very fun module with well-thought out encounters and tough low-level challenges. Get it!
The best art in all the GameMastery Modules so far. Just exquisite, eye-catching stuff; this coupled with GameMastery's standard clean, slick look is a big plus.
The traps and rooms of this dungeon are all interesting and unique, but it is hard to justify them together . . . it is a little too much and doesn't match the plot as well as it should. I think it shows that it is a delve, and as such the flow of the adventure is a bit offset by odd characters and rooms that don't seem like they belong. That being said, anyone looking for great individual rooms and traps should definitely check this out.
Considering this has been offered as a free product and download, it is impossible to overstate the value here. The layout and artwork is some of the best I have seen in an adventuring module and bodes very well for the upcoming Gamemastery line. The story, while nothing groundbreaking, leaves room for exciting and detailed encounters that should challenge a low-level party.
