Let the bodies hit the floor....


This is the first issue fot the age of worms campaign. That alone is worth getting the issue.

The Whispering Cairn is a great 1st level adventure for Veterans & Newcomers of DnD. The balanace of hack and slash, Brians before brawn , and ROLE playing are perfect.

The Diamond lakes backdrop was a must read for each DM wishing to run the whole campaign.

Temple of the Scopion god and Chambers of Antiquities are also good solid adventures.

Chamber of Antiquities - Dungeon crawl for the suicidal


I was very impressed with this issue to begin with, but Chamber of Antiquities sealed it. A classic addition to a classic D&D scenario by RJK no doubt! The addition of the random creation for Hordlings is a great update to the demons charts from AD&D1 and gives us DM's the ability to keep things interesting for PC's when in the depths of the 'moor' castle in the mountains.

The Whispering Cairn


The Whispering Cairn didn't grab me until I got to the old observatory. The overview of Diamond Lake sealed the deal of having a good start to the Age of Worms Adventure Path.

The online supplement is outstanding.



Best issue of Dungeon EVER! This not only kicks off the second adventure path, but also has some of the best adventures I have seen!

AOW jahuuuu!


this is a great isue. The Age of Worms adventure and backdrop are fantastic. The backdrop is highly useable as a starter town, with a large number of intrigues just waiting to happen. This has been the easiest pregenerated town to place the PC's in for as long as i have been DM (12+ years). Even if you have no plans to play the campaign this is a great addition to any DM's campaign and is ripe with things you can use. The adventure Whispering Cairn is VERY good, with a lot of surprises, can't wait to get started on sunday...

Am I the only person who was sorely disappointed by this cover? Not because the quality, but because the fight shown wasn't in the magazine. I see this cover and since I'd read the previews for Dungeon, I automatically start thinking "Holy crap, low level PCs fighting gargantuan burrowing worms! How the hell did Paizo pull this off in 3.5 without it being an auto TPK?"

Issue arrives and no giants worms for the PCs to fight. :(

I don't know about only person, but if I recall correctly, when it came out I figured it was merely to imply that the Age of Worms was going to be a big thing.
Remember, When Age of Worms came out, it was only the Second AP Paizo had ever done. Prior to Shackled City, Dungeon Magazine actually had a policy against sequential adventures & the AP concept was very much untried & experimental.
So, no, I never expected that issue to actually have a scene where the PC's faced off against gargantuan worms.
Yes, I'm that old...

Prior to that, the only multi issue adventure set in Dungeon I remember was the 2E Mere of Dead Men.

What about "Tortles of the Purple Sage" in Dungeon #6 and #7?

While I have those issues buried somewhere, I had not read them yet so i din't know there were two linked adventures.

I vaguely remember hearing about Flame getting sequels.

Flame appeared in issues 1, 17, and 100.

FranktheDM: 124 features The Whispering Cairn, which is one of the best 1st-level adventures ever written!
