Ravenloft provides the perfect D&D setting for Gothic and eldritch horror, and Curse of Strahd is (correctly) considered one of the best published Fifth Edition adventures to date. Any DMs Guild adventure that artfully blends classic horror tropes with intriguing storytelling in a Ravenloft setting quickly gets my attention. But I was unprepared for the sheer breadth of content and attention to detail with “The City of Eyes.”

“The City of Eyes” is a 15th level (!) adventure that takes place entirely within a dark dimensional noir city, under constant rain fall and stalked by terrors of the night. The adventure plays out like a tense, cooperative Arkham Horror-style board game as players work to unravel the mystery and escape from the mystical city before they’re driven mad, or worse.

Away from the safety (safe now anyway) of Camp Vengeance our heroes trudged southwest through the jungle toward Mbala, a massive plateau that should provide them with a clear view of the surrounding jungle. If they can make it to the top.

DMs Guild Review – The Wizard of Zo

Using famous fables, stories, and characters within D&D, or any tabletop RPG, provides a fun shared cultural touchstone for your players. I would love to see more adventures that blatantly ripped off famous stories in fantastical ways, like defending a poor village against a tyrannical local lord (Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven), evading a relentlessly powerful enemy (Predator/Terminator/Alien), or shepherding a young person across a dangerous world (The Last of Us/Logan/Children of Men).

The Wizard of Zo” takes one of the most famous stories of the twentieth century and it applies it to a standard D&D mini-adventure, perfectly set within the jungles of Chult. It’s a Tier 2 adventure, designed for 5-10th level, with an estimated play time between five and ten hours. It doesn’t try and retell The Wizard of Oz, instead cleverly pulling ideas and characters into a detailed cast and a fun dungeon design.

A much needed long rest brings a well-deserved level up. The heroes reach level 4 and receive free healing at Camp Vengeance, but there’s a cost to sticking around – the undead Rygor is hellbent on razing the fort and killing everyone inside.
