Perils of the Surface World
Publisher: Exile Game Studio
by Timothy B. [Featured Reviewer]

This is a collection of adventures that takes the characters around the world. Adventures are harder to review than games in general since the real proof in both is the playing. Adventures only more so. This book contains four separate, but loosely connected adventures.
Each one also contains some added crunch or rules to the game. We get Faith and Miracles, Horror, Infection and Sanity, New Sorcery Rituals, Artifacts and Vehicles and lastly (what might be the most fun) some Martial Arts powers. No spoilers, but if you need some ready to go adventures then this is the book you want.

This is a compilation of the previously released adventures, that being said they are very good adventures and a must have for any fan of Hollow Earth. These adventures can create a great Segway into the Hollow Earth by starting your players out above ground and then you could tie the end of the adventures into the beginning of an expedition into the Hollow Earth, but remember to leave them with a cliffhanger so they will be clamoring for more.

Perils of the Surface World compiles the four scenarios and optional rules expansions for Hollow Earth Expedition released to date, bringing them all under one spectacular cover. This PDF is the byproduct of producing the compilation in print.

Layout of each adventure is mainly unchanged, but the background 'old page' look has been dropped in favor of a clean white. No bookmarks or hyperlinks are included, which is a surprise. The table of contents lists the adventure content separately from the attendant rules additions so finding what you want is not hard, it's just not as slick as it could be.

The quality, clarity, and excitement content of the adventure material is very high and for HEX fans old and new, should offer a lot of enjoyment. The rules content, designed as optional add-ons to reflect the specific surface world environments and tones of each adventure is also top-notch.

The four included adventures are: Miracle Stone of the Amazon, Frozen City of Terror, Legacy of the Terra Arcanum, and Five Talons of the Jade Dragon.

The supporting optional rules are: Faith and Miracles, Horror and Infection, New Sorcery Rituals, Vehicles, and Artifacts, and Martial Arts.

This is an incredible value in terms of roleplayed bang for buck for those who do not already have the 4 adventures. The convenience of having them all in one place may also be attractive to those who do.

A brief observation: it might be nice to let potential buyers know that this is actually a collection of the four adventures previously released individually, to avoid someone making the mistake of buying the same scenarios twice.

love it! been waiting to read "Jade Dragon" for some time now and i am not disappointed by what i have read so far. each adventure adds some wonderful flavor to the Hollow Earth world, with some exciting new rules and a few monsters and villains to keep a party on it's toes and the four new characters are a nice addition to the game.
thanks Jeff and company...
