This is a very simple (and short) introductory adventure. I bought this some time ago and had forgotten where I had gotten it. I was thinking that it was a "free" product. It is in most ways just that basic. The thing is, I am writing this review because I find myself running this adventure for a gaming group for the third time. (I did a search on the document so that I could thank the authors... which brought me here.)
This adventure is very basic and simple on the surface. It includes a very standard, "You are approached in the inn by ..." introduction; and a small and very basic "dungeon" area. The thing is, the simplicity of this adventure is at the core of its appeal, and it's also quite deceptive. The adventure sets up a situation that provides some interesting moral questions and a number of challenging role-play opportunities for the DM and the players.
It's written for third edition D&D but I am running it for the third time and each time that I have run this adventure I have run it for a different system and none of these has been D&D. This again can be attributed as a boon of the game's simplicity as it is so easily adapted.
Page count is small. It's a quick read. It's very basic and yet deceptively deep. The true test of an adventure isn't it's length or complexity ... it's whether or not it is played. I have run this adventure for beginning players twice already, and return to it this week for the third time, because quite simply ... it plays great!
It's a single evenings entertainment. It's great for beginning characters. It's a good basic D&D style adventure that could be adapted to any other system with little effort.
I came here to thank the authors for providing me with an enjoyable evenings adventuring (for the third time.) And for $3.00 I can't imagine a better bargain.
