|AWizardInDallas RPG Superstar 2010 Top 8|
Reviewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. I really hope you won't be disheartened by this review - if you manage to squeeze more content into the next GU, I'll happily rate higher.
I was going to buy this, because I'm a sucker for 'old school dungeon crawls' which is what this is billed as, but having read End's review, I won't be picking this up at the price. I'd consider half that a fair price for a single dangerous encounter - it does NOT sound like a dungeon crawl. I'm encouraged by the apparent quality though, so I will be looking out for more releases.
I think Endzeitgeist's review is slightly misleading. This is not a single encounter by any means; it is a single scenario, and perhaps that is what he meant to say.
It is a short scenario that is meant to be plugged into a larger game as a single night's game. At the conventions, this adventure caused much fanfare and tense excitement. Also, the foolhearty wind up dead.
In addition to the multi-layered scenario, this Grave Undertaking comes with some new optional rules for more thrilling and dangerous combats and a new magic item property.
With regards to formatting, everything is hyperlinked to the d20pfsrd for ease of running the game. There are three sets of stat blocks for monsters in every stage of the scenario. This allows GM's to fully customize the game to a wider range of levels. Also included is a black & white version that is completely printer friendly.
I do appreciate the kind words from everyone about our quality. We have taken feedback and our continuous improvement very seriously, and we want to provide a really great product that will be highly memorable.
Feel free to check out the reviews on DrivethruRPG as well.
Sorry to say this, but I meant exactly what I wrote.
This is, at least to me, one prolonged encounter with three phases. Yes, they could be called 3 seperate encounters, but they flow over into each other seamlessly. A dungeon does that not make, though - at least for me. That being said, it's a nice, deadly, prolonged encounter.
