A splendid collection of dungeon floorplans, items, door and hazard counters, with the option to add stand-up doors in two different formats (with or without supporting walls), the whole prepared in a delightful hand-drawn style reminiscent of British artists like Ronald Searle (who drew the original "St Trinian's" cartoons) and William Heath Robinson (who famously drew many imaginary complex machines made out of old bits and pieces, connected by lengths of knotted string, scraps of wood and so forth). The defining elements of all are no truly straight edges, and an eye for detail where needed. Here, that means things such as small texture markings on the stones and occasional irregularly cracked flagstones.

All the expected modular items are included for basic corridors and rooms, using a standard grey stone colouring, although one or two smaller rooms and stairways have cream-yellow flagstone shadings instead for variety, an effect which recurs more fully for the larger chambers. A few of the smaller rooms are more exotically-decorated still, with patterned or wood-plank floors, a nice touch, while a couple of special rooms, one on two levels, the other an Idol Chamber, provide the icing on the cake, with extra emplaced items, encouraging their use as focal points in any adventure. And to get you inside, there's even an overgrown ruin tile with stairs leading down to the first doorway.

In general, the pieces print out clearly and cleanly, though the overgrown entrance and Idol Chamber tiles have colouring a little too dark in places, not a major fault. The "worn parchment edge" border to every page is wasteful however, as it's simply going to be cut off and thrown away. Be careful in doing so, as there are a couple of compass roses, a north pointer, and some interesting curlicues among the marginalia which could have game use as well. The only real lack is an index page showing thumbnails of the set, which would have made planning what needed to be printed much easier. Even so, these dungeons are just itching to be cut-up, board-backed/laminated and above all USED!
