Raiders of the Forgotten Treasure
This mini-dungeon was conceived by a 7 year old Game Master. An age when things like backstory and adventurer level doesn't come close to the really important things like traps, monsters, and treasure! Although, the adventure does state that Raiders of the Forgotten Treasure is suitable for 1st - 3rd level characters.
Complete with printable paper miniatures and dungeon tiles, this Swords & Wizardry (or any OSR rule-set) appetizer gets you right into the action with a 6-armed goblin, vampire beetles (don't get bit and if you do get bit, for the love of god, make your save!), and a trap inspired by a microwave.
The scribbled, loose leaf paper graphic design gave me that 3rd grade feel. However, the illustrations and map look nice for such a DIY four-area dungeon.
All in all, this was an impressive and fun little crawl created by a GM who's only 7. I'm curious to see what The Inkling comes up with next!
Until it's available on DriveThru, you can acquire Raiders of the Forgotten Treasure here.
