This is an amazing product for Dungeon World. For all of you GM's who aren't sure how to write a 'low prep' 'highly narrative' adventure....this is the way you do it. I will be using this as a template to do all dungeon like adventures for Dungeon World. Well laid out and really shows you how you can make a 'narrative' dungeon area that takes up 1 page or less.

I've enjoyed everything from L&B and this was no exception. Creative and fun, with the kind of inspiring text and images that made old school gaming fun. Players should bring their imaginations, because this adventure will become far more than is included in the box if you run it openly as Dungeon World is run best. Five Stars!

A fun little adventure that's really well suited to Dungeon World play. If Servants of the Cinder Queen seems a bit vanilla, it's because the author understands how the GM's Principles and Agenda are supposed to work, and designed accordingly. The scenario is a flexible framework of elements that are open to interpretation and can change to suit the emergent story as the player characters interact with them. Of course, as the GM, you have to be comfortable with improvising--filling in the scene transitions and the specifics, integrating the players' input, etc. It's not a great story in itself, but it's a pretty damn good road map to where the good story is.

I ran this adventure for a pair of newbie players, and they had a blast. One seemed more interested in exploring and picking up loot, while the other was more intent on killing things than anything else, and Servants satisfied them both. There were even some hilarious interactions with Thorde Skul, the mad sorcerer seeking to bring his fire goddess back to the material plane. They managed to explore a sizable chunk of the adventure's contents, but there was material enough for about three and a half hours of play, with a significant amount of material left over. In the end, we all left the table having been thoroughly entertained.

The real charm of Servants for me was the artwork, which perfectly conveyed the scenario's intended tone. One look at the illustration of Thorde Skul and his cultists will speak volumes as to how they should be played. The cartoonish style lends the otherwise dark material a bit of levity, and (I think) gives you permission to have as much fun with it as you want.

In my opinion, Servants of the Cinder Queen is well worth checking out.

The idea with the undead that are worked to a burnout made me chuckle. Otherwise, the adversaries are rather boring - all they want to do is killing other beings (mainly by burning them to cinders). The plot and adventure elements are standard (good sealed did this and evil guys try to break the seal), which makes it even difficult to salvage the adventure for other stuff. It seems the starting questions are meant to define some of the dungeon background, but that is already fully written - thus, the answers are most likely to become just another set of (wrong or pointless) rumours about the dungeon.
