Written by three English school kids IIRC. Has a dinky little dungeon in it, only 7-10 keyed encounters, much like the sort of thing you got in UK fanzines of the time. Otherwise it's rather bland and boring. Not worth reading per se, unless for research purposes.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Well, I found it quite interesting when I read it for the first time... in 1987!  :roll:  :P

I recall this book pretty well from when I had it in 84 ?. I also remember reading it 3 times or so and even at the age of 13 thinking it was fairly weak. As always for me the reading of the sample adventure was the 'best meat on the bone' so to speak. :)
