This adventure is designed to serve as an introduction to the game, and does this well with plenty of background material woven into it so that players new to the setting will find that they soon know quite a lot about their new alternate reality, without having to settle down and wade through reams of material before they start play.

The adventure itself is quite straightforward, involving a native town under attack, with plenty of opportunities for the characters to lend their assistance and save the day. It would be quite good for a novice GM, as options are presented clearly depending on how events fall out, all the GM has to do is select the most appropriate one to continue the narrative flow with.

Both combatants and those who prefer to talk will find themselves with plenty to do in order to complete the adventure successfully. There are moments of terror, opportunities to do good or ill, and generally plenty going on - with a feeling that the characters have just happened by on the right (or is that wrong?) day rather than events taking place merely because they are there.

The township of Chisca is well-detailed with some interesting inhabitants, and could serve as a base or recurring location in future campaigning. The caves of the title, which are located nearby and are the source of the trouble that needs to be dealt with in this adventure are also described in excellent detail, which should make their exploration a memorable experience for those characters brave enough to venture in. There are also some ideas for further adventures.

The book ends with full information on all NPCs and creatures to be encountered (with excellent background to help the GM make them come alive) and 4 pre-generated characters for those starting the game who want to dive straight in.

Overall, it is a very well presented adventure that serves as a good introduction to Northern Crown and leaves me wanting to explore the world further - & I speak as someone who has played in this adventure before settling down to read it for the review!

I was very impressed by this product. It is the first Atlas product I had ever read and it was my first introduction to the intriguing Northern Crown setting.

This product made me want to go out and find more from the Northern Crown project.

A well-written adventure with many elements. The Caves of Chisca might be a challenge to groups of D&D players who are more used to solving mysteries by simply killing everything in sight.

Caves of Chisca would be a nice add-on to someone running a Rennaisance or later D20 campaign.

How can you beat the price of FREE?

This product is totally worth your time.

I purchased this campaign to use as a adventure to put my PC's through. I read it through and thoroughly enjoyed it's story line. I will be honest and say that I do not use any module as it is written, but tend to tweek it to work for our gaming style (old school AD&D). However, this was an excellent story and had some very nice maps inlcuded with it!<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: I loved the maps! The story line was very intersting!<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: There was ALOT of history to read. I kind of had to fish through what I felt was relevant and what wasn't.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

This is a good adventure of moderate length. My group required three sessions to finish it, but they managed to experience almost all of the detail. It's a twist on the classic dungeon crawl, which is actually very interesting when adapted to the Northern Crown setting. I'd advise running the adventure from the first issue of Franklyn's Almanack as an introductory adventure. Then run this one. Your players will thank you for it.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: This scenario is easy to fit into almost any Northern Crown campaign. It takes place just within the borders of "First Ones" territory, so vitually any party can find an excuse for visiting the area.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I would like to see tactical maps and cardstock miniatures for use with this adventure. Even if they were a seperate purchase, I'd like to have them.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
