Guillermo's Thoughts:

(Review based on the version included in the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls rulebook.)

This adventure has a rather original premise, since you can only undertake it with a character who has died in a previous adventure. Unfortunately there is nothing too creative here in terms of gameplay - the story is yet another "wander at random until you find the way out or get killed" journey. The game is quite difficult to complete successfully (mostly because the opponents are very powerful), so those looking for a tough challenge will appreciate it. As for myself, I must say I prefer Circle of Ice by the same author.
