I am new to DCC RPG. It is fast to play, and I am using commercially available stuff in my game since I pressed for time. Goodman Games produces fantastic stuff, and I've read that this publisher does great as well.

But the quality here is lacking. The story does not measure up to Goodman Games' quality. I may give this publisher one more shot, and if this is what they've got, I'll buy from others.

This scenario is very, very brief. I paid $3 for it. But it is so simple and short that it is about what I could have come up with myself on the fly.

I will expand it to last a 5-6 hour game session, adding encounters, etc. But this is a 3 hour deal, tops, based on the adventure itself.

There are 6 or 7 pages of actual adventure/content, depending on whether you counting the beginning summary as content. The map for the adventure fits on one page, one sided.

The art is excellent -- pure DCC RPG old school. But the scenario is kinda boring and lacks a story, the main character lacks a defined, credible reason for being who and what he is.

This should be a freebie or a buck or two. I can't complaint for the $3 I paid -- I guess I'd just rather have paid $7-10 and gotten a Goodman Games adventure that would last 3 game sessions.

The listed treasure is a monty haul for surviving 1st level characters, unless you want them all in plate with warhorses and various finery at 1st level. That's not how I roll...

Overall, it is not a bad value, but I was just not "wow'ed" by it at all.

Art: 5/5 Writing: 4/5 clear and concise and easy to read and understand, good if you've got 30 minutes to get ready to run something. Originality/Quality of story: 2/5 Length: 2/5
