So, bravo if your commercially understandable apparent hatred of everything 4e stands for means you like the idea of people being slowly turned from it. Bravely cavern away, we are told, is not “cool” and gaming is supposedly all about being cool.

Guest Review: Caverns of Thracia – Multiverse

From what I understand, the Necromancer Games cavenrs. I can’t really blame Jaquays for this “The Dungeoneer” shows that he was a hobbyist just like everyone else, he just happened to be way better at it! Another problem is that monsters which could be surprises aren’t.

If the rules have any mention of spells or artifacts that allow resurrection, it would not be unreasonable to allow the characters to go off on a sub-quest to revive their fallen comrade. They pop up on eBay pretty regularly and often go for very little money. The irony, of course, is that this module actually did inspire me to try and imitate it and, while I failed by any measure, I did learn a lot from the experience.


Also, his Runequest work, mainly Griffin Mountain, is outstanding.

But we had fun doing it, because the pseudo-ancient Greek atmosphere of the place, combined with its memorable encounters — like the cult of Thanatos, the incarnation of Death — spoke to our dreams of being Indiana Thracka.

This is a style of dungeon design that we just don’t see anymore and that’s a pity, because I think gamers are missing out on the unique pleasures of exploration that can only come thgacia the dungeon environment itself is as much of a challenge as the monsters, tricks, and traps contained within it.

Indeed, 4e’s design is simply, from what I thraciaa tell, dancing to the piper rather than calling his tune. Play a different scenario or just roll something up.


I do have a couple minor quibbles, though: Sure, describing odd rooms can be tough. Complex of Zombies Adventure: It stops in the middle of the bit on war-trained familiars, with: Reading them or the BECMI rules, which I never saw for the first time, you have no preconceived notions of how things work. Personally I think that particular module is just awful, definitely the weakest of the Master M-series line.

Thursday, February 26, Monday, April 06,6: This supplement represents a series of rooms and caverns which have had many previous owners. If they want to be more precise than that, they need to pace it out or measure it. Ah, youth… Wink Sunday, February 22,1: I also understand that the NG version expands upon the original levels of the dungeon, although again to what extent I don’t know yet.
