A good, solid trap dungeon. Except not mean spirited (looking at you, Mr. Gygax).

This was an excellent dungeon at an excellent price. It blends many different classical elements of the dungeon in an interesting way and it gives you a hook that can be easily used, though you can just as easily design your own. In my campaign, we used the hook as written, and that went pretty well with my group. A personal favorite of mine was having one member of the group describe an obstacle and another help solve that obstacle during the lead-up to the adventure. That particular aspect was brilliant for our group and one we will definitely be using again.

The art is servicable, especially given the price, and easy to take from the PDF and import into a virtual tabletop for use as handouts when appropriate. The map is easy to copy and hand-draw in, but I couldn't import the image directly due to the secrets being noticable in the player version, though I consider that a relatively minor issue.

For the price, this is a fantastic deal and the formatting is top notch so the prep work is very easy and gives you more time to think about what will be the most fun for your group!

M.T. Black is a veteran D&D writer with many successful adventures and supplements — and for good reason. M.T. consistently produces quality content and The Tomb of the Twilight Queen doesn’t disappoint.

This treasure-filled adventure is for an average party level of 3. The hook opens with a wealthy benefactor hiring the party to accompany him to find the Book of the New Sky that is buried with an ancient queen in a desert tomb. He promises a hefty payment for the party once the rare book is retrieved.

The world setting is within M.T.’s “World of Iskandar” campaign, but can be easily placed in any setting. The adventure is a pure dungeon crawl, designed to get your party to the tomb quickly and start exploring. “I've emphasized tricks and traps when populating the dungeon, but there are plenty of opportunities for characters to draw their swords,” writes M.T. in his design notes.

The most notable feature of this adventure for me is the design and layout. First, M.T. has clearly designed for tablet or phone reading, with a single column format with large, readable fonts. He also provides excerpts from the rules to help a new DM, such as calculating falling damage or jumping distance, to keep the adventure moving. The readability of this adventure sets it apart from standard D&D 5E design and requires little preparation to run. My only request would be a two-column format for folks like me who print adventures!

There’s also room to improvise encounters and fights, depending on what the DM and the party wants to focus on. “For the more significant battles, I've supplied round-by-round guidance to make the combat experience fluid and exciting,” M.T. notes. This makes the adventure customizable to the DM’s preferences.

I played this adventure multiple times and each group of players have found it enjoyable and challenging. With an easy-to-read layout and great encounters, this adventure has found a place within my library that will be referred to for future one-shots or inspiration.

Breaking down what I liked or disliked into 3 parts: Layout, Maps and Encounters

  • Layout (4 stars): The layout for it is GM friendly and organizes key information in a simplified fashion, making it easy and quick to gather needed information. The style is a mixture of Old School meets D&D Adventure League. The artwork is basic but matches the black and white theme of the layout.
  • Maps (3 stars): Since I have moved 80% of my gaming over to VTT, having a detailed map is critical for my style of gameplay. You do get a digital map, but it misses out on the details and flavor that a full-color map can deliver.
  • Encounters (5 stars) : Many of the combat encounters can be challenging for the players, but easy enough to alter with recommended adjustments within the adventure. The traps in the adventure seemed to have been fully thought out and can make interesting gameplay.

Great adventure, very classic feel to it. Design is really easy to follow, I feel like I could run it with zero prep at all. Hope this gets to set new standards in adventure design, specially for Guild products.
