Full Disclosure: I initially gave this product a pretty critical review. I really wanted it to be better. I liked the setting and the way the heist is structured. There are interesting NPCs and the book has excellent art. I still think that the writing is some of the best I've ever seen in an adventure. But there were some pretty significant problems with the maps and the brochure handout.

The author reached out to me to talk about those issues, and based on a short conversation, was very understanding of my difficulties. A couple weeks later, the product was updated with some significant changes, and as far as I can tell, all of my initial problems were fixed. I've since changed the rating on this review and I can wholeheartedly recommend it. My players had a blast, and so did I.

Hi David, Thanks very much for the feedback! The information about the virtual map is especially helpful. I will update the map in the next few weeks to be more practical for VTT games, as I've learned much more about them since I first published this module. If you reach out to me on Twitter at @ellielynnz, I will be happy to give you a full refund on the product as well as the updated maps. Thank you very much for reaching out for how to improve the product - I really appreciate it! Sincerely, Ellie

I just finished running this adventure for my new campaign and I was very pleased with it. I ran for a party of 5 level-1 PCs, but 3-4 level 2 PCs would also work. The encounters are tough, but if one of your party doesn’t have a brush with death at level 1, you’re not doing it right!

Troll Trouble is a short adventure that follows the standard Tavern/Travel/Cave/Boss template, and has roughly 5 Hard combat encounters. There are a number of new creatures to fight, which are all decently balanced and fun to fight. There’s even a newly imagined version of an old classic monstrosity.

The boss is a spellcaster, which is usually a pain for me, but the spell selection as written makes for easy strategizing. It only took me a few minutes to plan out the first 5 rounds of combat, plus some conditional actions.

If Demogorgon is the BBEG for your campaign, there’s some excellent foreshadowing that most of the players will miss. If not, it all works fine without describing the specific details to them.

If you need an adventure to start off a campaign, look no further. Especially if your group is well-experienced in D&D and you want something to challenge some of their expectations. This was $1.00 well spent and I would buy another by this author without question.
