Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and ranges from ok to very good. Editing and layout was good, I didn't notice any errors or problems. This adventure is a more standard explore the lost “insert name here” type dungeon, but there is some knowledge and lore aspects to it. Otherwise it is a fairly well done short dungeon crawl. While it is made to fit into the local area of the Lonely Coast area by Raging Swan it would be pretty easy to drop in just about anywhere for PC's as a side trek. It is made for a 3rd level party, it does have some information about continuing the adventure as well as scaling it for other levels. So what's my rating? It is a nice simple very well done fun little dungeon crawl. It just begs to have had more lore and puzzles and such added to it. I am going to rate this one a 4.5, good but with just a bit more it could have been great.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
