A fantastic and inspiring adventure, just the right size for a few sessions of gaming and for giving your players a taste of the surreal Hill Cantons. Highly recommended!

well-implemented point-crawl, perhaps the iconic example of that style.

Every part of this module is pure radness. It's a good length--detailed, but not too detailed. In a similar vein, the art is incredible, but there's not an abundance of it.

My personal highlights are the Men at Arms and Hirelings table, which, though small, are packed with some disproportionately interesting details. The bestiary adds quite a bit of the right flavor. The dunes themselves, a literal sandbox, are great although neither the Golden Barge nor the Glittering Tower dungeons inspire me as much as the rest of the book.

The War Bears are actually the coolest part though. I mean, the name alone lets you know that.

Wonderful old school adventure with dry wit and a heap of weird Russian fantasy. I'm glad to have backed it.

Quirky and idiosyncratic, this sandbox-y setting reminds me a lot of the sword-and-sorcery fiction of the 60s and 70s, with a faint resemblance to Moorcook and Bakshi along the way. The area could be explored and rushed through is a few sessions, or an imaginative GM could spin things out much longer.

I liked everything that was here, but came away with a vague feeling like something was missing. The four factions that occupy the Dunes could all use some additional development, and some additional plot elements setting them in motion would really make this a 5 star product in my opinion.

I would easily rate this 4 1/2 stars if I could.
