This little adventure pulled so many of the strings of the metaphorical mandolin I play that I can't help but adore it. While it indeed is rather morbid at points and obviously meant for an older group of players, I cannot help but see this as a perfect adventure to introduce young kids into the world of D&D with a "Yarhar!" and "A bottlarum!" to go along with it. With intrigue, high-seas swashbuckling, and a little spritz of horror - The Shany of Boldbeard's Pride has all the pirate - a unique and interesting crew that border on comedic, a terrifying ship, and the overall ancient legend of the bucaneer Boldbeard. I especailly love the fact that Jimmy created the game Liar's Dice within the adventure to add that additional layer of immersion - I am definitely stealing that to use in another game. At the end of the day, this is a fantastic product that is easy to run and easy to fall in love with.
