The Snake's Heart - A Lost Age Adventure

This is my newest one. The overall feel of this one is like an action movie. Maybe more like a horror-action movie, but you get the idea. The adventure is hard core old school. It is compatible with S&W: White Box but like most of the OSR adventures it can be used with just about any rules. The file is a pretty simple affair; 19 pages, line art. So nothing too fancy, but the aesthetic is very, very old school. It looks like something your older brother's friend who was the first kid in the neighborhood to play D&D might have made; only a lot better. The adventure itself starts with a simple set up and encounter (I like adventures that make the players DO something right away) and then that simple encounter leads to a confrontation with an evil cult. Shenanigans ensue. The adventure takes a few cues from more modern adventures and separates encounters. The effect this has is to keep the action flowing. If this were a movie it would be Raiders of the Lost Ark or, more aptly, The Temple of Doom. At just under $2.00 it is also perfect for an afternoon when you want to play something but don't have an adventure ready to go.
For myself I might make some minor changes here and there. Snake Goddesses are fun and all but what if I need a Wolf Goddess or a Centipede one? It make a great introduction for some characters that have already been through one adventure and are their way to the larger plot brewing. I say grab this one and use it this weekend.

The Snake's Heart takes a bold new approach to the classic dungeon crawl. Not necessarily in the dungeon itself, but in its presentation. The "scripting" descriptions really give it the feel of an 80s fantasy film like Conan the Barbarian or Beastmaster. The adventure itself is a definitely good for a solid night of adventure - well written and clear.

For two bucks, you just can't go wrong.

Interesting and innovative format on this one. The maps are utterly old school, and so is the situation presented. As another reviewer mentioned, it has read-aloud text that functions in an interesting way. Definitely worth checking out. The adventure is very directed, but doesn't have the feel of a railroad, just a very, very narrowly delineated, minimalist adventure. Extreme Conan-type feel.

A nice little old school adventure! I like the sword & sorcery style of the story presented here. Probably I will run it using Crypts & Things. Nice descriptions, great layout, overall a nice -and cheap- product. Can't wait for the next adventure of Lost Age campaign.

This is an excellent introductory adventure for your old school gaming. The prose differs from typical adventures in this genre as the presentation is in a format one might expect a cinematic or television screenplay. A cut scene is even included! The format harkens back to the D&D white box days. The price point makes this item an easy, no-brainer!
