Tranzar’s Redoubt is a dungeon with twenty something elaborately described rooms written for Labyrinth Lord. Quality of the content is generally very high with great and to-the point texts as well as excellent illustrations which fit well with the general theme.
Thematically, the adventure gravitates towards fairy tales while still being a genuine dungeon. Alice in Wonderland or any movie by Tim Burton springs to mind. Every room is a tiny mystery in itself, like the lonely stone giant looking for friends, or the crashed golden egg. But any visitor will also find all the other things we’ve gotten used to: problems that need solving, new types of monsters to clash against and treasure to haul. One thing I really appreciate is that the denizens of the dungeon are provided with at least semi-complex personalities instead of just falling somewhere on the good vs. evil scale.
The only thing I could wish for is more! Tranzar’s Redoubt is small enough to fit into a regular book shelf and contains forty pages. It would be really exciting to see what the author could accomplish on twice as many.
