Castalia Review: Secrets of the Nethercity

Now up over at the House of Castalia.

Given that this is an adventure for mid-level characters, you’re looking at a minimum of six months of play or rolling up 4th level characters before first setting foot into the slop at the doorstep of this kilo-dungeon.  Not sure I’ll ever play this one, but the hard copy will set on my shelf, just in case.  A fun read, if only to pick up some ideas for how to organize a big dang dungeon to make it playable and easy for the DM to gradually build up to something really special.

Observant readers will have noticed that I have taken to posting links to works that I review over on other sites.  Really observant ones will have noticed that I also include fresh content here to provide some added color and personalized content.  Unobservant readers are not my target audience, but I still love you – hence this brief addendum.

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
