Red Ruin keeps delivering ziney old school goodness! The 6th issue does not disappoint. The busy GM will thank the gods (old and new) when they read the wonderful adventure "over the gloaming moor". It is in fact more like a mini campaign setting with encounters and hooks a plenty to keep your low level characters entertained for many moons. I love me a good map and this one so beautifully captures to look of the original maps in the Dragon Warriors books that i had to do a double take to check I'd not seen it before. Another 5 star product and best of all - it won't cost you a single shiny shekel (or florin or matapan) ;-)

I've never played Dragon Warrior, but I'm an old-school D&D GM, and I'm always on the lookout for new source material to keep things interesting. This issue of Casket of Fays did not disappoint. The title of the scenario, The Gloaming Moor made me reach for my dictionary, just to understand its meaning. But the rest of it was easily recognizable. Taking place in highland moors, it will fit right into my campaign with a little fettling. It has 3 different paths the party can take, so I see my players traveling thru this area on quests, multiple times, taking different routes with different encounters. My one complaint, and it's a minor one, is that I prefer hex maps for wilderness maps. But the map provided (twice - both in the 'zine and also as a separate PDF) is very well done. Since you're providing 2 maps, may I suggest you make one a player map, without the encounters enumerated?

The featured monster in this issue, the Gloomvile puts a new spin on daemons/undead. Not all are after your mortal soul, some are happy just for your company, to take your gold and maybe make your life unpleasant for a time. Another monster featured, the Mi’raj seems a little too much like the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, but it does make me think, "what would happen if there was a breeding pair?" It's enough to send chills down my spine.

Overall, it's an excellent 'zine and well worth the cover price. 4-1/2 STARS

Thank you for your kind review. I must confess that I hadn't considered a player facing map but that is a blooming good idea. I'll message Andy who wrote the Gloaming Moor and drew the map and see what he sez.

Happy to say that there is now a player facing map available. Good news all round. Very handy for when I run this. Big thanks to Andy for taking the time out to update this.
