This location encounter set includes great looking map tiles in color and grayscale, and a short encounter scenario with some nasty little monsters. The map tiles have a hand-drawn quality to them (rather than a more photorealistic look) and could easily be used with any game system that uses miniatures.

I downloaded this product not to use in support of Pathfinder, but rather, for the maps. I poked around the zip file first. The map included comes in both full color and in grayscale versions. This is great for those who want to save on ink. Another nice touch is there is a one page overview of how the map is supposed to look when assembled. Having this reference makes an easy job even easier.

The map side of the PDf does not come with game stats and in and of itself, is useful for any game system.

The hookwing is a seperate file, a PNG image file. The monster is a green, almost dragon looking beast.

Other parts of the file include a grid with labels, for the GMs reference for the adventure, and one without for handout/player use. There is also an image of the file with no grid and no labels.

The adventure is brief but does include an overhead/overland view of the tower from being approached by land, as well are read aloud text and options for further exploration as the dungeon is fully fleshed out in other products.

If you have $2.99 to spend and are looking for a map of a ruined guardhouse, and even better, are a DM for the Pathfinder game system, this is a solid purchase for you.

I want to think Joe Kushner for taking the time to do a review of our product, having enjoyed his reviews for many years, and hope he enjoys the rest of the project. Steve Russell Rite Publishing

The Ruined Guard Tower by Rite Publishing

This product is 24 pages long. It starts with a cover, credits and area map. (3 pages)

This is a old guard tower that the PC's must go threw the lower level to get to the rest of the ruins. There is a single encounter in the this book. After the encounter location and tower is described, there is a full stat block for the monsters in this book. (2 pages)

A OGL and maps to be printed out and used with mini's follows. (16 pages)

It ends with a 2 page IC introduction to the adventure that was a nice touch with even a little advice for new adventurers. Finally there is a single page ad at the end. (3 pages)

Closing thoughts. This is a very simple and straight forward setup. This product will be a series of rooms or locations of a much larger dungeon/ruins. This one is the very first in the series. The art work is good all and all and the maps are very good. I liked the IC introduction to the dungeon. I didn't notice any obvious errors in the book. I found this one a bit hard to rate. On one hand this is just a single room of a much larger and totally unknown adventure, but on the other hand if you buy them all you will have a full mini map of very nice maps of the whole dungeon. So if this sort of thing appeals to you, I think you will be happy with it. I am giving it a 4 star, it delivers what it promises.
