Caravan guarding is a trope of the adventuring world for a reason, and The Black Road is actually a pretty entertaining trip into that trope. It doesn’t make much effort to be new or innovative with this shopworn story idea, but rather revives it for new players to get a sense of what this sort of mission is like.

The monsters are fairly standard, but they are used cleverly in several places, with the need to protect the caravan wagons and camels as a nice touch to try and compel players to think outside the hack-fest box. Enemies show flashes of intelligence, but are only really in danger of outwitting the thickest of PC groups. The either/or option of the final part of the adventure is nice in giving players a chance to get a little more creative without sacrificing treasure.

I’ll be keeping this one in my back pocket as a simple 2-hour adventure that I can plop down and run with a minimum of prep time. I encourage it for anyone looking for the same.
