Torren and Jelax are brothers who came to town about 6 months ago after adventuring abroad to open an inn. The brothers mostly keep to themselves and seem cordial, but rumors have started to spread throughout the town of adventurers disappearing that use the brother’s services. The local magistrate has discreetly hired the adventuring group to investigate these disappearances.

An Endzeitgeist.com review
This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.
Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!
This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.
Torren and Jelax, two brothers, have recently rented a basement and people saw adventurers enter…but not leave. It’s up to the PCs to find out what happened – and the basement is NOT a nice place anymore: The brothers have been chopping up the unwitting victims and established a vile shrine devoted to cannibalistic undead. Braving the nasty brothers and their butchery and ghouls and the like turns out to be rather interesting -including traps, terrain hazards and the like – nice!
Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no significant glitches. Layout adheres to a beautiful 2-column full-color standard and the pdf comes sans bookmarks, but needs none at this length. Cartography is full color and surprisingly good for such an inexpensive pdf, but there is no key-less version of the map to print out and hand to your players. The pdf has a nice piece of full-color artwork.
Michael Smith’s mini-dungeon not only sports a straightforward, nasty imagery, it also manages to be rather diverse in the challenges it poses – from combat to traps and the like, the module delivers as much as one can expect from such a brief format. While I prefer more far-out set-ups, as far as basic ones go, this is pretty much all I could ask for – and well worth a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded up for the purpose of this platform.
