YOU BASTARD!!! Yeah, I said you Bowbe. *points*

How is it that you can tease us with your... "oooh, ooooh, shiney" tidbits, yet we'll have to wait 6-12 months for the turn around time?!?! Huh, huh.

What do you have to say for yourself?

The DB series is proving to be my favourite C&C module series. Nice work, Casey/Bowbe.

I'm a bit confused by this. Isn't DB1 mainly for PCs levels 4+? I recall most of the adventure areas recommending parties in the 4-7 level range.

Also one criticism: the maps in DB2 are way too small!

All I know, from experience, the Troll Lords in the Dirty Bowbe area are a bit much for level 5 PCs... even with +2 weapons. I got lucky and took one down for about 30 seconds (I made a called shot to its head with a giantslayer sword and rolled a natural 20,) or just enough to escape, but the bastard killed off the halfling... right before I had my roll, so that whole scene was quite dramatic. If I'd failed, the thing would've killed all of us... and there were two more coming!

I'm thinking we weren't supposed to fight them quite yet. :) But, now... I know they exist, and I'm gonna hunt every one of them down and put it into my form of misery. Bastards.

Fun stuff though!

I agree, the maps in the PDF are almost impossible to read. I tried enlarging them, which made the room numbers really impossible to see clearly
My only solution would be to print them out and re-label *every* room on the maps in order to actually use this module.

Is there any way to get a hi-res version of these maps to download?

Since the HH seems to be a new staple how about offering a poster map for sale?
