I'd have two more pre-orders? :D

I've just spoken with our printer and he expects Pod-Caverns of the Sinister Shroom to be finished soon. So *cross fingers* those of you who have pre-ordered should have the module in a few weeks.

Thanks Joseph.  How'd you do on preorders (if you're willing to share)?

We had around 40 pre-orders. I had hoped for more, but as neither the publisher, author nor artists have any history related to TSR, I view that as not a bad number. I expect this to tic up as the quality of the material becomes apparent.

Received my copy yesterday! Haven't had a chance to read through it yet, but definitely like the layout - definitely reminiscent of the good ole days!  :D

I'm not a reviewer, but I'll definitely put in my two cents worth when I've gone through it. The cover is a good start though! Easy on the eyes!

That's really cool! I like the list at the bottom: "1 grain of folly..." Heh. Isn't that the best stuff in life? :)

Well got my 2 copies of The Pod Caverns, though have yet to read it. Should it be any good, I shall put in an order for the 2nd in the series and others to come after.

Well read it, sure does have the look and feel of the old D&D modules.  Being a 'map guy' (they are art to me) it seems the text doesn't match as well it should with the maps in some spots. Also there is no scale on them yet certain things in the module are given a size.
Well with that over, the actual idea/concept and execution is good, the dungeon makes sense and the quirky things found throughout were great.

Shall have to check out the next one in the series.

Well, the adventure seems pretty standard. I do applaud the incredible similarities in the text and artwork when compared to 1E mods; the font of Advanced Adventures is similar, the red bar across the top, even the starburst. If you glanced at it quickly, it would seem to be a TSR mod.

It's pretty good!  Should be an interesting twist for my been-there-done-that players.
