TL; DR– Great intro fun with some crazy story elements. 97%

Basics–  Dragged by a brutal “king”, you have to find the secret of immortality or your village dies.  You are nobodies when you go into the volcanic tunnel under a mountain, but you will emerge heroes if you survive!

Mechanics or Crunch-This is a great adventure for starter heroes.  The players will get a kick out of this adventure as they get the basics overall.  One issue is that there isn’t much combat here.  There are traps, some crazy bits, and a finale, but not a ton of fights.  A bit more would make this more fun.  Also, most of my players get through this adventure in about three hours, so it’s a bit short.  A few more fights might help this one.  But what is here is nicely balanced, and a fun intro for your newer players.  4.5/5

Theme or Fluff– Oh DCC, never change!  This story is crazy as you just get dumped into the dungeon, and then planar transport before level 1!  Solid crazy stuff here; hellknights, a city of djinn, and a thug who needs killing all feature into this adventure.  This adventure is just crazy gonzo fun for your players.   5/5

Execution– PDF? Yes.  Hyperlinked?  Yes.  THIS IS LESS THAN 20 PAGES AND IT HAS HYPERLINKS!  Goodman games knows how to put out some solid stuff.  It has crazy, old school art.  It’s easy to read.  It’s fun to read on its own.  It’s all the things I want in an intro adventure.  5/5

Summary-Solid work here for DCC Game Day.  If you want to have some quick intro fun for your players to enter the world of DCC RPG.  This is a well written, well crafted, easy to read adventure that is something almost every DCC gamer and honestly every RPG player should try.  Check this one out quickly!  97%
