Product Review – Nights of the Barrow-Wight

Nights of the Barrow-Wight
A Micro Quest Card

Author: Lloyd Metcalf
Cover Design: Lloyd Metcalf
Publisher: Lloyd Metcalf Inc.
Page Count: 4
Available Formats: Folio/Card
Cost: $3 (The entire set of 6 different cards is $15)

PREMISE
The inhabitants of the region have to contend with things that go bump in the night. Every third full moon they sequester themselves in their homes for a period of time and only venture out to tend to the livestock. Why? They have the best farmland in the region. It’s the price they pay. This short adventure presents a situation for characters to venture into the barrow mound of that which haunts the area.

QUALITY
The card stock used is the same stock they use for greeting cards. It has a glossy finish coat that helps to protect and provide extended durability. The colors are bright, but not overly so. The art piece and the map complement each other and the overall color scheme fits the theme of the adventure. The text is easy to read despite the compact format.

PROS
Short and concise 4-panel adventure. A very neatly packaged fully developed micro adventure than can be dropped into any OSR game. It can be also be dropped into any fantasy system with only minor adjustments to the monsters.

CONS
I really don’t have any gripes about this adventure!

PARTING SHOTS
Night of the Barrow-Wight is a well-written module printed on greeting card folded stock. The presentation is great and very easy to insert into any existing game. Well worth taking a look at.

** Revision: I corrected the art credit at the top of the post to reflect that Lloyd Metcalf is also the artist for art pieces contained in this micro adventure. **

    • Lloyd,

      I was gifted this particular micro adventure from a young lady who went to GaryCon. I really like the possibility of dropping this into an ongoing Barrowmaze Campaign a friend is running. Seems like a perfect fit!
