A human outpost (the Bleak Tower) is under siege by the Split Tongue orc tribe. Can the PCs defeat the source of the trouble in the Ironwood Gorge?

A familiar set up, but with some interesting twists and features: (i) Intrigue amongst the residents of Bleak Tower; (ii) Travel to the 2 level dungeon via the Ironwood should be a memorable and creepy experience. A new monster, the Ironwood Dryad, is a nice variant on a classic, suitable for a Mirkwood-like forest; (iii) Geographical features come into play in the gorge; (iv) There are allies to find; displaced and downtrodden goblins have useful information; a good variety of combat encounters, including some new monsters; (v) The Split Tongue orc tribe is well described, with tension between the Warlord and the Priest; (vi) There are bonus areas to discover, and multiple routes to find and exploit.

My group needed three trips and an alliance with the dwarves to defeat the orcs. There are many "stop the humanoid raiders" adventures available, but this is a superior one. Highly recommended.

I converted this module for use in my Hackmaster campaign and have to say that it worked beautifully. The interesting backstories and small touches really make what looks like a standard dungeon crawl come to life. I had to tone down the number of enemies and treasure but that's purely a mechanical issue of conversion, I'm sure it would be fine for the intended systems. This is an adventure that can easily be the setting for an entire campaign.

A fair number of empty caverns and obvious unresolved cliffhanger stop it from being a full 5 stars but I would highly recommend this module.

A good follow-up to the earlier Sanctuary Ruin, but here the difficulty is cranked up a serious notch. If you GM this as an impartial referee in the spirit of the OSR, your players will have a seriously hard time - if they aren't experienced as players, I'd recommend having characters with a few levels among them, probably around 3rd to 4th at least.

The adventure presents a precarious situation, one where PCs face real danger on all fronts, but at the same time it is eminently ‘winnable’ and your players will feel like they really achieved something.

The premise is essentially the tried and true kill-the-orcs-in-the-cave, but no two encounters are alike, and there is a terrific twist at the end. The pre-gen characters alone show the huge attention to detail that went into every page of this module.
