This is a brilliant adventure. The hooks are relatively straightforward, but presented in a fashion that would be easy enough to customize to any PC party to generate personal investment in seeing the story through. The design is elegant, fun, and contains a number of familiar wizard tower tropes presented in refreshing ways. There is sufficient NPC intrigue to allow the more political-minded players to garner enjoyment at various stages of the game. The opposition, while challenging, is not insurmountable. Once the adventure is complete, a number of potential aftermah scenarios are presented, giving the DM some guidance in terms of where the campaign might go from here.

In addition to the campaign itself, The Gleaming Cloud Citadel contains a number of new spells that are well designed, interesting, and add a new layer of utility to arcane magic without stepping outside of the narrative role of such spells, or becoming grossly overpowered.

I cannot recommend this HIGHLY enough. One of the finest adventures on the Guild!

This has everything that a D&D adventure should have. Monsters leaping out of dark places, traps where players might not suspect them, puzzles to solve, treasures to be won and NPCs to help out - if approached in the right way. But what stood out for me when I reviewed the early draft were the intrigues going on among the wizards of the Gleaming Cloud Citadel. If your players like getting involved in uncovering and decrypting the grudges and motives of NPCs waging a cold war with each other then this is the adventure for you. Much polished since then - love that cover, by the way - well worth the cost given the work that's gone into this. I hope it does well.

Golden Years - that's what this adventure reminds me of! I was taken back to my childhood, crawling through dungeons with magic in the air and mystery just around the corner. While this alone make this supplement worth buying for me, I feel I must list out its other merits as well - amazing cover art, fully fleshed-out NPCs to make life easier for the DM, homebrew spells, a logical and straightforward layout, and links to their website to download digital versions of the maps, and of course, the creativity and hard work put into this supplement. Some further enhancements like a print-friendly version and some tighter editing would definitely make this gem of an adventure shine better, but it already has so much going for it by balancing old-school charm and nostalgia with the refinement and elegance and polish of the current edition of the game.

Brilliant Adventure! ( Get that reference?)
