Frugal GM Review: The Hanging Garden

Frugal GM Review: The Hanging Garden
I know I've reviewed several New Big Dragon products in the last few weeks/months, but to be honest....I like their stuff.
          Assault Against the Menace of the Mountain
          D30 Sandbox Companion
          Save vs Dragon (OK, technically not a review)

Now I follow the Save vs Dragon website and try to download any new goodies Richard has made available*, and today I downloaded his newest adventure, The Hanging Garden.

This adventure was submitted in the one-page dungeon contest and Richard has offered up this slightly expanded version on his site. It is a 1st Edition (or 1st Edition compatible) adventure designed for levels 1-3. The adventure is rather interesting, as in I like it, but I think it would be an utter blood-bath for even a large party of adventurers at these levels. I don't think the "big bad guy" would be much of an issue, but the most common enemy....well, they would be really common and prove (I think) to be a huge problem for the party. Toss in the special monster(s) of the adventure and I think this adventure has TPK written all over it. I think the adventure is pretty good except for this one point. The adventure has just the right amount of details without being too bulky and there is a lot of leeway, including a cool future adventure hook, for the GM to tweak the adventure.

Oh yeah....the price is just right at free!
