GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1: Mirror of the Fire Demon
 
The Wind Spirit says,
"To disperse the orcish horde,
Strike the goblin's head."
— Some hack
This week's e23 release is sure to bring joy to the hearts of old-school gamers everywhere. It's GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1: Mirror of the Fire Demon, by Matt Riggsby. The long title means exactly what it says: "The first adventure ever for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. With demons. And fire." The Old-School Fun™ includes:
  • A quest given in town – and not by an old man but by several old men.
  • A dungeon with numbered rooms keyed to monsters and treasures.
  • Stats for all monsters . . . including several new, original ones.
  • Random encounter tables.
  • A treasure table.
  • Tactical maps of all important locations.
Best of all, perhaps, this adventure isn't "one size fits all." It comes with concrete advice on customizing the backdrop and events to your campaign's setting, your PCs' abilities and attitudes, and your group's power level. All of which makes this adventure worthwhile even if you don't use Dungeon Fantasy.

Get it now or the orcs have already won!

It also includes seven geomorph tiles suitable for outdoor wilderness encounters - a very pleasant surprise!

I'm going to be running this adventure, probably in a few months, though I'm going to replace the Desert with an Ocean (the starting adventure of the campaign is on an island, and there's a great hook into the start of Mirror of the Fire Demon in it). It's going to be heavily modified to fit the setting, but I think I can still use the majority of it. Hell, I can probably use the Bounding Turtles as-is (they'd just be sea turtles rather than desert ones:D).

I still haven't read it yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so.

Are the maps printed in light blue so I can't Xerox them??

I've taken a gander at the .pdf, and it looks like the maps are black. However, it also seems like there is a light blue outline around the whole thing. I would think it's perfectly Xeroxable.

I walked outside, in the snow, in bare feet to get my Kindle out of my car so I could read it last night. I'm probably going to modify it to the tundra and use it in my Skyrim/DF game.

GURPS authors have told me they don't write adventures because they don't sell. This has changed?

Maybe. From what I understand, this is something of a pilot program. If this sells well, they'll undoubtedly make more. If it doesn't . . .

Either way, anyone interested in seeing more GURPS Adventures made should pick up a copy. I'm speculating wildly here, but maybe if this sells well, we can expect to see other adventures, like MH or AtE ones?

* (AtE = the upcoming After the End genre line, I'd like to go on record as being the first to give it an acronym! ;) )
