The adventures are not linked too tightly, which is advantageous if you are planning on providing lots of side-quests, or as I did you are using the adventures separately rather than as one full campaign.

However, the story isn’t tight enough and there isn’t gyga side information to really keep the campaign going in the area. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a one shot adventure, and your group happens to be riding through a desert, this book should necroopolis you a breather before your next big story.

It’s been converted from another game system Dangerous Journeys, I believeand there are some traces of the old setting scattered throughout the book.

Another big plus for this type of adventure design is that the most powerful spells are NOT the massive-damage, massive area-effect offensive spells that some players tend to overuse. The monsters are gygqx illustrated nicely, and are mostly quality work. The action is interesting throughout this section – as it is throughout the entire adventure – and of a grandly heroic style.

As a consumer with sagging bookshelves who despises books that use excessive font sizes, margins, and so forth used as “padding” to nectopolis page count, this is a plus in my book. However, I can reveal that finishing the quest will require some crawling through the ancient trap-filled tombs of a fantasy version of Egypt, as well as role-playing, problem-solving, and actual fighting!

I found the section on Khemitian deities particularly interesting.

As you can see, there’s a lot of material here. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Over all I am glad it is sitting on my shelf.

First, I have not thoroughly looked through Necropolis; I’ve only read it in a store. That said, if you’re a GM looking for an exotic campaign ending in an exceptionally grim dungeon, and you have players gyga will still love you even after the third Total Party Death, I doubt you can do much better than Necropolis.

Though the overall thrust of the adventure is linear, many of the stops along the way are full-sized dungeons in their own right, with several avenues of exploration available. That’s no good, either. It has more than pages that describe both an epic adventure and the lands of Egypt – or at least, a fantasy version of the same.

East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. The only thing I didn’t see in this and it can be inferred from the price listing and the fact that you mention the necrooolis count is what a complete STEAL this book is at it’s listed price.

There are also places in the adventure where the DM is told to encourage players to use metagame knowledge to figure things out There is lots of roleplaying potential, and a chance to become familiar with the culture and history of Khemit.

It is a hardback, printed on a superior quality of paper; the internal layout is excellent and eminently readable. The traps aren’t entirely arbitrary. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. Posted By Morrus Friday, 28th December, It is also one of the most brutal, well-thought-out dungeon crawls Gygas ever had the pleasure of reading.
