A good solid pair of tournament adventures; the first part a fort invasion, the second a dungeon crawl. The highlight are the set encounter areas which emphasize interesting traps & tactics with their 3D layouts and danger areas. Both parts have a theme about 'haunted areas' of the dungeon that the slavers are afraid of, which the players can use to their advantage. Also, the 'cavelings' on level 2 are a neat idea. Finally, Icar, Markessa, and Blackthorn are all very memorable foes. Yet, there's something of a missed opportunity in all of this, in that right at the beginning it is stated that the current stockade is built on the ruins of an older fort. It seems natural to add an undiscovered area that harkens back to the original inhabitants, much like what G1 has with the strange chapel. What can I say, I like a dash of mystery!
