Local villagers whisper of a mysterious place deep in the marsh – a place shrouded in mist and dotted with barrow mounds, ruined columns, and standing stones. The tomb-robbers who explore beneath the mounds – or rather the few who return – tell tales of labyrinthine passages, magnificent grave goods, and terrifying creatures waiting in the dark. Are you brave (or foolish) enough to enter THE BARROWMAZE?
Barrowmaze is the critically-praised, classic, old-school, mega-dungeon “crawl” by Greg Gillespie. Over the coming weeks our heroes will brave the winding tunnels in search of gold and glory.
We will be playing using the Basic/Expert D&D retro clone Labyrinth Lord supplemented by the Advanced Edition Companion. PCs will be starting at low levels (2nd – 3rd). There are a few house rules for character generation and play, but mostly it’s straightforward old-school FRP; with an emphasis on exploration, resource management, and sheer grit. So grab some graph paper, your ten-foot pole, and don’t pay the torchbearer in advance!
