Guillermo's Thoughts:

(Review based on the Spanish translation.)

This short introductory adventure uses the same system as the Tolkien Quest gamebooks (a simplified version of MERP). The adventure is a pretty unremarkable wilderness fantasy quest, but it includes several different paths to the conclusion and it allows the player to solve it in a variety of ways, meaning that it can be played several times without becoming boring. You should not kill to play it, but if you need something to entertain you a couple of hours, you could do far worse.
