Although it was not the adventure I had hoped it to be, it read thru easy and looks to be a great romp on the ice. It does have a taste of " the Thing" in it's storyline which I was not prepared for, so make sure the party is prepared for the possibility of mass devastation. But I am looking forward to sending out the message to my players of a danger on the South Pole that calls for their immediate attention.

Iron Nugget Hollow Earth Expedition: The Frozen City of Terror takes a group of investigators from a simple rescue into the bowels of a creepy experience. The straight forward adventure is perfect for a one shot. In the adventure, the PCs are investigating a missing research team in the frigid unknown of Antarctica.

One of the most important things that a writer can do when trying to write an adventure in a modern setting with supernatural elements embedded in is to perform enough research so that the setting feels authentic. If the PCs do not feel that the setting is real, you can ruin the creepy, terror atmosphere you are trying to create. The writers succeed admirably at this task, reinventing a better setting and plot than the flop of a movie Whiteout.

This adventure may not fit in an ongoing campaign, as it restricts archetypes and stays fairly straight forward. However, as a one shot, the isolation of the setting brings a feeling of anything can happen, which is what you want when running a one shot.

In the end, players will enjoy the several twists in the story and the strong prose writing.

Exile hit this one out of the park! Horror is my favorite genre and now I can use one of my favorite gaming systems to run horror based games.
