OK - This is a good product and I would like to say some good things about how good its goodness is. I bought Zepplin Adventures for $1 during a crazy sale by Adamant Entertainment. I got a real bargain. This adventure includes useable plans of a ridgid airship (which is why I bought it). WIth that, you get an adventure fit for Indiana Jones. You get spies. You get action. You get a lost island with dinosaurs. You get a dessert topping! (OK - actually no dessert topping.). There is a lot more to this product than initially meets the eye. At $7.95 I would rate it at three stars and say that your 20 Modern money could be spent here. At $1 (yes, one dollar) I was immensely pleased and I would easily give it five stars.

Well, that pisses me off! I just finished writing a thorough and articulate review of this thing only to have the web page delete it. Rather than go back and try to recreate it (your loss, DriveThru), I'll just hit the high points:

Scenarios -- sort of dull and ho-hum -- failed to live up to their promise, despite enough wrinkles to potentially make them truly awesome. Too regimented and requires the players to follow the script pretty closely to have any possibility of winning (or, in at least one case, even surviving) the scenarios. Yes, I know this is pulp, and we're supposed to give them the chance to overwhelm fate with their two good fists, but the scenarios require more work from the GM than they should have to make that happen. Plus too many opportunities to explore other facets of the scenarios were ignored in pushing the players towards the desired conclusion -- especially in the second scenario.

Graphics -- disappointing, few illustrations of the zeppelins and most of those too small to read without a magnifying glass (thank God for the zoom button on Adobe); plus in at least one case it looks like a simple reproduction of what Chaosium originally published in their first edition of Call of Cthulhu back in the 80's. Several of the pictures and maps were pixilated as well, making them harder to read than they should have been.

Technical Content -- overall excellent -- the authors provided statistics and brief descriptions of most of the rigid airships of the day, as well as additional aircraft and weapons from the '30's including the German "potato masher" hand grenade and various machine-pistols and rifles of the era.

The included adventures are excellent. They're not suitable for a single campaign, but anyone running a pulp campaign should be able to make at least on of these adventures fit. The plans of the zeppelins aren't the best, and I would have liked to see a better job done in that department. Battle maps aren't necessary, but something to allow the players and GM to get a better feel for the layout of the zeppelins would have helped. Bottom line: I bought this product and managed to actually use it at the gaming table to the delight of my players.

I found this to be a first rate product. Well written and imaginitive. It is full of great information for any GM running a capmaign set in the airship era. I used it extensively when running a Pulp World War 2 game.

There are several good sample adventures that can be played with little preparation, although I found the one inspired by "Where Eagles Dare" to be a little weak.

This product is utterly fantastic. The description provided by Adamant Entertainment does not mislead or build false hope. Having grown up near Lakehurst Naval Air Station (where the Hindenberg crashed) I've had a long affinity for zeppelins. This product will allow me to add some childhood daydreams to my campaign.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The depth of detail and obvious research makes it worth the price. It was also much longer than I expected.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The diagrams of a zeppelin interior are interesting but not true game accessories. If there's a sequel (or a Secret Squadron bonus) a fold-out for use with miniatures would be great.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
