    Out of 11 pages, 7 are the content. This PDF covers wells this time. Very similar in outlay to Dungeon Dressing Walls, and DD chests.

    Tablel A (2 pages), gives you characteristics & appearance, which covers getting the water, and water quality, common characteristics, climbing & falling into wells, and a d100 chart.

    Table B (2 pages), give you dressing & features, and a d100 chart. Table C: traps & tricks (P6), covers 3 types of well, suffocating and water quality.

    Page 7 has a rather gruesome picture of corpses around a well; which reminds me of the first LOTR film when the Fellowship are in Moria, and some foolish 'Took' drops a bucket down the well.

    At £1.96/$2.45, it's a good addition to the Dungeon Dressing series.

    Thanks very much, Stephen. I'm glad you enjoyed the book and the artwork. I think Matt Morrow did a cracking job with that well picture.

    This a well done piece of my GM library. I have used this many times in my campains, both based in fantasy or for custom made sessions. What makes this so invaluable is the detail and amount of designs that this allows you to place in your sessions. It is one of my best purchases for additional content for RPG maps that I have created.

    An Endzeitgeist.com review

    The latest installment of the Dungeon Dressing-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we?

    So this time we're introduced to wells - whether dug or drilled, getting the water or water quality, basic ideas are covered first, before we get 4 wall conditions including climb DCs to scale them. Of course, adventurers are wont to "do the Timmy" and fall into wells - hence a handy table of damage incurred from falling into water (or on ground) is provided for the DM - excellent and handy to have around!

    The basic set-up out of the way, we are introduced to the first table, which, unless I've miscounted, has 46 entries of characteristics to add to your wells - from interlocking stone blocks, wells that actually are long slopes, bore holes of purple worms and even wells with stairs in the walls, we get quite a cool array of wells, with some featuring things to glean/learn about them with skills.

    The second table spans a whole 100 entries, covering e.g. giant centipede-droppings (including Knowledge DC to identify them), strange stalagmite structures, smeared goblin graffiti to finally walls that have been transformed into OOZING PUTRID FLESH. Yes. Delightfully twisted and versatile, from the common to the uncommon to the far-out, disturbing, this table runs the gamut - two thumbs up!

    We also get 3 traps/hazards of Raging Swan Press' trademark complexity, i.e. with multiple rounds of results and multiple skills/things happening: Methane-filled Wells at CR 4, a Gravity Well at CR 8 and finally a well that imparts maddening visions at CR 8 make for cool obstacles. Have I mentioned contaminated and tainted waters?

    Conclusion:

    Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to RSP's two-column b/w-standard and the pdf comes in two versions, one optimized for screen-use and one for the printer. Both versions come fully bookmarked for your convenience.

    Author Brian Gregory offers us another glorious installment for Raging Swan's Dungeon Dressing-series, with nifty crunch-tables, cool dressing and versatile hazards/traps - what to complain about? Well, if I were to complain on a very high level, then perhaps that there is no table or the like to cover falling into the wells - slippery floors, crumbling floors, something like that. Precipitation, moss, mold and their modification of how easy to scale a wall are all fall under a flat +5 DC, which is slightly less varied than I would have liked - a couple more entries to modify the base DC would have made this even better. I am complaining at a top-notch level, though - my final verdict will still clock in at 5 stars.

    Endzeitgeist out.

    I don't know about you, but I like dungeons that actually work... I mean, those which can sustain their population independently of the time they are 'on-screen' whilst the party is visiting. So if it houses living creatures, they have certain needs to be met and facilities that they require: sources of food and drink, perhaps a kitchen/food prep area (unless they eat everything raw) and, um, rest rooms. So you can imagine my delight at a book about wells... that's one facility to cross off the list: a fresh water supply.

    The work is, as usual, made up of several tables each addessing a different aspect of wells. The first is about characteristics and appearance, but before you actually get to the table there are notes about well construction, getting the water out and - vital for inquisitive adventurers - climbing out yourself should you fall in. The table itself gives some good and atmospheric descriptions that you can use when the party first comes across a well.

    Next is a table of dressing and features, all the little things you notice when you take a closer look. Many could, if you choose, lead to further adventure. "The sounds of sobbing emanate from the well" perhaps, or even "At the bottom of this shallow ten foot well a donkey is trapped. It is covered in mud and is cold and shivering." Or perhaps strangeness is more to your taste, try "Though empty and dry, the well hole is filled with bobbing and blinking tiny points of light."

    Finally there are some traps and tricks to spring on the party should they decide to investigate a well further. Remember that these are only appropriate if the well is not depended upon by dungeon residents for their drinking water! The Well of Maddening Visions holds some promise, but if that does not appeal one filled with methane or the 'Gravity Well' may prove entertaining.

    And you thought a well was just a hole out of which you got water!
