  • Advanced Adventures: The Verdant Vault of Malakum (OSR) This installment of the Advanced Adventures-series clocks in at only 9 pages, 1 page front/back cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, ½ a page of SRD, leaving us with 6.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look.   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreons.   As always, this Advanced Adventures-module uses the OSRIC rule-set, but can be theoretically converted easily to other rule-sets.
