Yes, I did in fact write a positive review, Rhu

I just wrote the review, Rhu, not Dungeon Alphabet (or, were you referring to Knockspell vs. DA?? ).

Just finished re-reading the dungeon delving pane from Hall of Many Panes and it's excellent. It almost seems as though it was lifted right out of a Castle Greyhawk level.

Tricks, traps & humor along with all the usual Gygaxian excellence that you'd expect.

Incidentally, as many of you know . . The Mad Arch Mage Zygyg is present in the Hall of Many Panes.



Yeah, that level was a "pane" in the a**e! Gary and his damned teleports! We had to endure many a "Heh, heh, heh..." from him!

Haha . . Gary laughing was good to see, but probably not when you're gaming with him!!

By the way, I picked up both of the Dungeon Sets by Pied Piper and they are fantastic! These are way better than other un-keyed maps I've seen. These are some seriously old school dungeon maps. One thing you get with these that you don't get with random generators is that the stairs between levels link together and there are ways to skip levels, etc... I highly recommend!

Yep, for sure. The cross section is awesome and just brings the whole dungeon to life. They (Ramsey) did a great job on them!

Thanks, I definitely think it's good. I noticed on Lulu that a Wilderness Alphabet book was recently published too (by another author): http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/t ... f/center/1

I haven't checked it out yet, but it's an obvious follow-up to DA.

I agree---I like 'em: some more than others, but in general I think they're a rather under-appreciated product, unfortunately.
