53 – gg no re:view: Deep Carbon Observatory

Our discussion & review of Deep Carbon Observatory, text by Patrick Stuart and art by Scrap Princess. MAJOR SPOILERS.

tl;dl: it’s a work of superlative imagination. It refreshes the underdark and specifically the drow, and contains some structural/mechanical experiments you can lift for other purposes. It’s a no brainer purchase. However, needs a second edition that focuses on the “presentation layer”—how the ideas are to be communicated to the players, both in the maps and in the room contents.

Here’s the character generation episode we did for the module, and here’s the first episode of the module proper.

We leave you with links and Trump memes relevant to the module.
