No smoke, no mirrors, just a great game.

It's a broad topic, but it's essentially anything pre-gun era. Warrior Heroes, Red Sand Blue Sky, Rally Round the King for a start.

No smoke, no mirrors, just a great game.

Vastly different. It's made specifically for Dungeon Crawling whereas the others are detailed games that dungeoneering is only an option. It's a streamlined game that will be great at getting non-gamers into it. Can also work with above ground adventuring. It's an option for players to use all their dungeon stuff without costing an arm and a leg.

Easier to get into than WHL/WHAA and to play. Great for an evening with the family or spouse. Simple enough to get the inexperionced gamer into it and challenging enough for the experienced gamer. Is it a replacement?

No, it's another option.

And, it's compatible enough that you can go from one to the other depending upon your mood.

You know, I really don't need another temptation...

But if it gets the wife back into gaming...

Beautiful cover!

(and as a playtester, I can say the game's playing fast and fun)

Agreed. I actually like the rules better than WHL.

Oh, and I also agree with the cover. Beautiful.

Is it still solo and coop oriented ? Is there some campaign rules ? XP rules ?

thanks

Solo? Of course, I live in an oasis in the desert and do not have lots of gamers nearby.
Coop? You bet!
Campaign? Definitely.
XP rules? Most definitely, even some new ones.
