A Review Of The Free Mutant Future Adventure - "Thundarr the Barbarian: Warlord of the Sacred Library

Lucky players of Mr.Sniders adventure got a copy of these. There aren't any spares.
Want a copy? Play at a convention with Tim DMing.

Tim Snider of The Savage AfterWorld has been running his Mutant Future Thundarr madness at GaryCon. He's made his intro adventure available to his reader.
So I thought I do a quick review  about the adventure.
Thundarr the Barbarian: Warlord of the Sacred Library"  is eleven pages of sheer Saturday morning fun. The game adventure centers around Thundarr and companions. 
The DM apparently played the cartoon credits and commercials to set the mood.
Knowing this is an effort to set the mood, charge the players, and get ready for some action this is a really great idea and tactic.

The plot is straight forward, linear, and goal as well as action oriented. A very wise introduction adventure tactic. The adventure hits all the usual Thundarr highlights with a few quick twists. Wizards, ancient technology, humans in peril, and Thundarr Saturday morning action. Its all here.
There's something very interesting that Tim did with this adventure. He hits all the high notes of his campaign setting in one short eleven page adventure. This is something that many rpg companies miss. Hit the players hard, have action going fast, and make sure their having fun. 
The plot is very railroady but that's fine because this adventure does exactly what the author/designer intended it to do.
Broil the players in the world of Thundarr and then entertain them with the action of the cartoon like setting. Bravo Tim.
The adventure can serve as a template for other DM's wishing to use the formula within their own games. Its very solid, short, and sweet with room for expansion.  I think he did a great job with it. One word of advice though grab a copy of "Across the Dimensional Devide as well.
Its free as well.
