Twenty dungeon levels in 192 pages, including table of contents, introduction, art and possibly an index? That's less that ten pages per level. Seems like each level would have to be either very small or very empty...
It seems like a project like this needs much, much more space. 300-400 pages at least.
I'd like to be excited about this product, but it seems far too ambitious for such a limited amount of room.
There is a review of this product here: http://blackmoor.mystara.us/forums/view ... f=27&t=503
Although I agree with you that more pages would have been preferrable, the insider comment sections by Dave Arneson himself makes me glad I own this book. Looking back at it now, I think I they should have cut most of not all of the stat blocks and just listed page references in the monster manual. That would have let them put more stuff in, and also would have made the book more useful for fans of other editions.
BTW, I realize that the initial post was made a long time ago, but I could not resist commenting
