This product remimded me of some of the dungeon crawls back when I first started playing D&D in the 1970's. Back then, it was fine that the monsters lived next door to each other with no apparent ill will towards each other and that treasure was more or less random. These days, however, it's so much more important with the 3.5 D20 system to have more than that, and that is where this adventure falls flat. I cannot vouch for the rest of the modules in the series except one beginner mod that I bought at a convention in hard copy. That particular mod featured a unique game twist, a nicely done dungeon crawl where the monsters were at least together, if not always having each others best interests in mind. This mod is basic in every way.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The only thing I liked about this mod was a reminder of the old days of D&D when I first started playing. The monster stats and the village aren't too bad either.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: This mod is a straightforward dungeon crawl in theme from the beginning days of D&D. If that is your cup of tea, then you will like this mod. If you are like me and the old style dungeon crawl isn't to your taste, then you would be better suited to buy some of the old 1st Edition mods here like Rahasia, Castle Amber, All That Glitters, etc; which are better at the storyline. Most of them are also updated to 3.5 version via the internet in several locations.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Disappointing<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>
