Brave folks! The end of Necropolis makes the Tomb of Horrors look like a day at the beach!

Thormy , technically lawful neutral but with good tendencies - he may be your best fit, since he's interested in protection and duty. He serves Justicia, too. I think Jeff means Thormyr :wink: ... unless David Trampier draws him, in which case Thormy fits fine! Ah, where's DAT when you need him?

Hi Angulimala, Thanks for keeping me posted on your evolving campaign. It sounds like you have done a tremendous amount of prep work—your players are fortunate to have such a hard-working GM! The “battle join-in” factor has always been a hard design decision for me when creating dungeons. Logically ...

I dare say you'll find this boxed set will satisfy your appetite (i.e., it's well worth the wait)!

I like JediOre's concept here. This method of adventure selection has the added bonus -- the players are already interested in the concept. Years ago while doing public radio work, I used to tell students "Play what the audience wants to hear first, what you like second (or third)." It's important t...

Thanks Maliki. I look forward to hearing your experiences with the adventure. Nothing beats detailed war stories!

hmmm... not sure if you mean the room that was full of spikes that had a small path working through it, on level 1? Is that the room you're talking about? How did you open the door at the other end? Did it open AT ALL? We walked straight across the spike room (based on the riddle on the floor about...

Trampier has been found. I can't say by whom. But he refuses to do fantasy illustration anymore. So he's effectively still lost. Twice the tragedy! :( I wish he knew just how many fans he has. DAT was my all-time favorite old-school artist; I'll never forget his MM illustrations. Happily, the good ...

Thanks Grasshoff for the kudos & commentary! :D I was surprised to see that none of the characters have a magic melee weapon. I bet this is rare for a party of level 4-6. This was personal preference on my part, partnered with the way the adventure flows. The pre-generated PCs (or the average 4-6 le...

The secret room was one teaspoon Gygax and two H.P. Lovecraft, or at least that was the feel I was trying to evoke. I always hope that my own unique "voice" shows in my writing however.

One question, why a sub-race of the main monsters instead of the "stock" version? Just curious. To keep the adventurers on their toes of course!
