Didn't age well

Helpful for filling out your understanding of Undermountain if you're going to run a campaign there. Helps to kickstart some thoughts and ideas about encounters, traps, exploration, and NPCs. As a story ... it didn't age well. It is somewhat interesting, but suffers from a number of Deus Ex Machina. Most of the twists and turns are pretty well expected. it's overstuffed with dialogue when the action should have been described instead. The sequence of time is unrealistic for the amount accomplished. The literary tropes and design are somewhat outdated. The characters are a little flat. Overall, it's okay. I'm sure it was really good when it was first published... I'd love to read a rewrite from the same author now that the world has been further development and pulp fantasy literature has improved.

Escape from Where?

First off I enjoyed the story. The beginning remind me of Escape from New York, a party of one slowly growing to a party of five. At every turn each of the party members had to over come a personal barrier. I highly recommend this book.
