One Thing: Beneath Castle Blackhawk

"Beneath Castle Blackhawk" by Darcy Perry

One thing I love about this OPD is that it instantly elicits nostalgia. Reading this takes me back to middle school, and that is not meant as a slight! This is the sort of adventure that filled my younger self with awe and drew me into role playing in the first place, and this is a good thing. There is a ton of value in nostalgia, and some would argue this a key component of the much debated definition of "OSR".  The layout, which seems to be done by hand, easily rivals submissions created with expensive software.  Perry did a great job, and I feel like this One Page Dungeon should come in a very thin red box!

Get it here.
