The author has no actual idea how to write an adventure. To read this is pain. The adventure is presented as a blatant railroad and written as a series of cutscenes, which drag on and give no opportunity for actually doing anything but listen to the NPCs and enjoy the scenery. The text is unusable, presented as wall-of-text paragraphs that haphazardly combine a place description here, an NPC and its goals there, interspersed by some events, quotes, then another location... just horrible. Unusable unless the players follow the scripted sequence exactly.

So: A young trader and his business partner are building a mill in a supposedly haunted swamp. They hire the adventurers to do exciting adventurous work, eg. "guard these crates and dig up some standing stones" because their Strigany labourers refuse to touch them. This brings us to about the half of the adventure, and finally something starts happening. Things take turn to the worse... in a different way than you might expect. There's scheming, a conflict with the "beast", possibly even a moral dilemma.

Overall, there's some talking and two fights.

There's a solid encounter buried underneath all this dredge. The work camp contains several colourful NPCs with various conflicts and secrets which may be used in play. There are couple of nice treasures, and a nice idea including the usage of success levels to "fail forward" while digging up the stones. And the actual finale, when things go bad, seems enjoyable. I can see myself using this as a complex encounter while travelling or as a random hook inside a larger sandbox – but I will have to hack the thing apart mercilessly and destroy the dreadful railroaded structure. You can hardly call this an "adventure", and it has no right to have 26 pages. God!

At least it's free. (Unfortunately, I actually paid for is as part of the hardcover collection.)

This module is perfect to squeeze in the middle of Heart of Glass (Ubersreik Adventures I). Be sure to play the "archaeological" part of the module out and it should all go well. Sadly the Basilisk Forge World miniature that would fit this module perfectly is out of production.

A good orginal adventure, that explores a new theme other than chaos cult in WFRP. Did feel a bit incomplete in places, such as the first question the players asked- how much are we getting paid, and what for? And maybe a few more skills or talents listed on NPCs, But nonetheless enjoyable, and a good prequel for the starter set.

A working introduction to the new edition, but it's a bit unpolished and trying too hard to remind you this is warhammer in places while not having a clear idea of how to apply certain aspects of the rules.

Exactly the kind of adventure i like in Warhammer : social interactions, nice NPC, some tricks and open-ended. Keep going on !

Really nice story with some interesting scenery and context (cool to see the Strigany), lots of interaction and ways to deal with situations presented. This scenario also provides a credible reason for players to go to Ubersreik with something to do right off the bat.

And cherry on top, it's free! Really good job from Cubicle 7, that's a great reply to all dark moanings about the game not getting follow-ups and so on. Can't wait for the next books, WFRP4 is in good hands!
