18 Day Module Challenge Day 2: Pod-Caverns of the Sinister Shroom



So, for day two's topic: Module you like with a monster in the title. I'm going with a latter-day old school module by my friend and OSRIC co-writer Matt Finch. This module was published in 2006 and is the first in the Advanced Adventures series for OSRIC by Joe Browning's Expeditious Retreat Press which now has 40 separate installments and a compendium of monsters, Malevolent and Benign.  Unlike U1, discussed yesterday, this is a straightforward dungeon-crawl that's immediately usable out of the box and is designed for 6-8 characters of levels 2-4.

Like many of Matt's adventures, this has a satisfying blend of puzzles, tactical problems and high weirdness., as well as the titular Sinister Shroom. Film buffs will no doubt be reminded of the 1963 Japanese horror-classic Attack of the Mushroom People/Matango (1963).

The module also features a relatively open-ended conclusion which can easily segue into Joe Brownings Advanced Adventures #23: Down the Shadowvein for even more deep-delving rpg fun. Highly recommended.

Tomorrow: Day 3 - A module with  a place in the title.
