Room A8 Flight of Stairs


Doomsday Dawn Game Master Feedback


The text to be read for the players for room A8, the Room of Ruined Repose, states, "A narrow flight of stairs winds downward, descending into this circular chamber. Stone biers line the walls, but the bodies that may have once rested upon them now lie scattered across the floor." Yet, the map in the adventure and the Flip-mat have no stairs leading down to room A8 much less anything winding down anywhere. This seems more like a description for room A7's entrance?

Horse: Yeah, I noticed that, too! My guess is that this was an editing error -- akin to the (unintended) giant rat from A10 that has been discussed already in the forums -- and that the steps are not supposed to be there. (There are steps leading down into A7, as you point out, but A7 isn't circular at all (!), so it's hard to think that this was just *misplaced* text....) We shall await word from Mr. Jacobs and others !

Pending further word, if you provide the players with the flip mat starter map, I personally would just omit the reference to the stairs and start the flavor text with "Stone biers line the walls...". If you're not using the provided map, though, a set of narrow (5' wide) stairs leading down could be still fit into area A8 reasonably around the circumference of the chamber, I think.

My 2 coppers ...
