Ring Side Report-RPG Review of EB-03 Where the Dead Wait

Originally posted at www.throatpunchgames.com, a new idea every day!

Product- EB-03 Where the Dead Wait System-DnD 5e Producer- DMs Guild Price- $4.99 here https://www.dmsguild.com/product/302373/EB03-Where-the-Dead-Wait?affiliate_id=658618 TL; DR- Solid semi-side episode of an awesome campaign. 95%

Basics- Time for Dawn of the Dead in Eberron? You’ve escaped from the Warforged with a magic talking box, but now the dead hunger for you in the Mournland. Can you get out, keep the box, and stop the dead from eating you?

Mechanics or Crunch- The crunch here is strong! It’s a fun adventure. Mechanically it works well. It might be a bit much for some players if they don’t think straight and want to do a smack down outside with an army of undead and don’t keep track of what’s happening with the NPCs. Overall solid, but sometimes the hint stick may be needed to help if the players just can’t keep themselves from killing themselves. 4.5/5

Theme or Fluff-Combine Dawn of the Dead, Evil Dead 2, and From Dusk till Dawn, and you have this adventure. It’s fun. It’s mostly a side adventure, but it doesn have a major plot tie in. Even the filler episodes of this campaign are fun. 5/5

Execution- PDF? YEP! Hyperlinked? No… I like these adventures. They are a blast to run as they read quick and I feel I can tie the player into the story. Reads quick, layout is nice, art makes me feel like it's the 1920s between the wars period, and the additional newspapers are a great touch. Just give me my hyperlinking to move easily through the materials, and it would be perfect. 4.75/5

Summary-Oricle of War keeps delivering. This isn’t the main plot for the most part, but honestly you won’t care. Solid plot, decent mechanics, and a good execution make this an adventure to play if you want to get deeper into this campaign. 95%

This was a great horror adventure that captured the desperarion of a zombie apocalypse genre story with just enough Raimi-esque humor to keep it enjoyable. Highly suggest this to anyone looking for a "trapped in the cabin but not sure who the worse enemy is" kind of feel. Most of the hard work is dobe for you with solid layout snd presentation to pull it off. One of the best and easiest AL adventures I've ran. Check it out.

Really interesting module! For a Tier 1 it can go any number of ways depending on what the party does and it really sets up the next module!

When I ran this, my favorite part is that I did not need to really work at all to get the the players to looking for safety. I think that the designers well-written narrative amplified by a DM projecting a sense of hopelessness gives the players that sense of urgency they need to get to safety and find ways to mitigate the threats that exist in the adventures.

I'm beginning to notice a trend with adventures that have James Introcaso's name anywhere in the acknowledgements. They are well-designed, well worth it and well done.

Your players shouldn't be disappointed.
