JUDGES GUILD CAVERNS OF THRACIA PDF

Retrospective: The Caverns of Thracia The Caverns of Thracia by Paul Jaquays is a good example of why Judges Guild is remembered so fondly by so many of us who started gaming in the 70s. Published in , Thracia is both a large dungeon and a campaign setting in its own right. While perhaps not large enough to be called a true "megadungeon," the four levels of the caverns are nevertheless expansive and filled with a wide variety of humanoid factions -- a few of them mutually antagonistic -- which contributes greatly to the feeling of dynamism the module evokes. This is a "living" environment that puts paid to the notion that old school dungeons are static places with monsters statically side by side without any interactions between them.

Retrospective: The Caverns of Thracia The Caverns of Thracia by Paul Jaquays is a good example of why Judges Guild is remembered so fondly by so many of us who started gaming in the 70s. Published in , Thracia is both a large dungeon and a campaign setting in its own right.

While perhaps not large enough to be called a true "megadungeon," the four levels of the caverns are nevertheless expansive and filled with a wide variety of humanoid factions -- a few of them mutually antagonistic -- which contributes greatly to the feeling of dynamism the module evokes.

This is a "living" environment that puts paid to the notion that old school dungeons are static places with monsters statically side by side without any interactions between them. Even more significant, from my perspective, is the diversity of environments within this module. Beneath it lie four levels, several of which have sub-levels and special room complexes that are only reachable through certain areas within the larger levels.

In addition, there are multiple connections -- shafts, chutes, stairs, and other more exotic means -- that contribute to the maze-like feel of the entire place. The Caverns of Thracia is very non-linear; there is no "right" way to explore its depths and no central "set piece" locations. I have a lot of fond memories of The Caverns of Thracia. It was one of the few Judges Guild modules I ever played in my youth.

But we had fun doing it, because the pseudo-ancient Greek atmosphere of the place, combined with its memorable encounters -- like the cult of Thanatos, the incarnation of Death -- spoke to our dreams of being Indiana Jones. Posted by James Maliszewski at AM.

Very much agreed on both counts, although I would argue that the immensity of ideas contained within small products was pretty much the standard in the early days of the hobby. Personally I think that particular module is just tuild, definitely the weakest of the Master M-series line.

Contents[ edit ] The Caverns of Thracia is a scenario with a Greek mythical background that describes an intricate dungeon complex and lost city. The upper levels are for low-level characters; lower levels are more difficult. Long ago they were a religious center for lizard men, but were later taken over by humans worshipping Thanatos, the god of death. The humans used beast men gnolls , minotaurs, dog brothers, etc. The slaves rebelled and the caverns changed hands again. The beast men chose an intelligent minotaur to rule them; his descendants still reign.
