For the price it's totally worth it!
Here's a brief overview.
First off it has a B/X Old school flavour to it. There's a LOT of great art within. I am in love with the cover (honestly a toadstool inn! way to hit right close to home on that one boys!).
Here's what you get:
How to resolve anything that comes up: An article on ability scores with a awesome table.
The Barbarian: An optional B/X Class
Optional Combat rules for heroes
Turning Undead: A different way of dealing with creepy undead that should have stayed dead (b/x).
The Purple Mushroom Inn: A sci fantasy adventures site for low mid level characters. (Damn this is awesome!). Complete with rumor & adventure table, menu, NPC staff, detailed personalities, and wonderful tavern map (and underground lair).
Random Chaos Mutant Die Drop Table: Great table with a pile of weirdness.
Random Dungeon Stuff: A bunch of excellent tables for dungeon crawling.
Mega Dungeon Maps: The Treasure Vaults of Nargu Qa'Dash. There are 4 extremely detailed dungeon maps (all hand drawn), combined with the random dungeon stuff tables, and a few wandering monster tables, you basically have a game ready to go. (of course a bit of inspiration).
**Oh look here's some inspiration
Reasons for entering the dungeon**
To return a ring to a lost love. (Long ago a dark elf maiden fell in love with a traveler, it was his dying wish to have her ring returned).
Hunting expedition. The coats of the shaggy beetle are extremely sought after, and worth quite a lot of gold.
Recently a Gnomish Caravan came to the surface with trade goods. Turns out that the good they sold are all defective. They need to be returned and the gold paid retrieved.
A local scholar will pay for detailed maps of the dungeon.
The source of the death shadow plague points towards the depths.
- In the darkness there are rumblings, causing structures on terra firma to fall down and crumble.
