Dark Mistress Review of Forgotten Encounters: Underground

(Reprinted from Rpgnow)

Forgotten Encounters: Underground by Purple Duck Games

This product is 23 pages long. It starts with a cover, credits, and ToC. (1 pages) 

Encounters (11 pages)
There is five encounters each using one of the monsters from Forgotten Foes monster book by Tricky Owlbear Publishing. Each one comes with a location, whats going on, complications, advice how to expand the encounter, and a full stat block of the creature. The monsters are,
Decapus
Destrachan
Grimlock
Crypt Thing
Delver

There is also one legendary weapon, 2 new magic items, 1 new feat, and 2 new spells in this section spread out in the varies encounters.

Additional Material (3 page)
There is five more stat blocks, one new feat, and two traps.

It ends with a OGL. (8 pages)

Closing thoughts. The art is black and white and good. Layout is decent and editing is all and all good. The layout of the additional material I think could have been laid out a little better but it's not bad. The encounters are pretty simple with some sections to help make more use out of them. I would have liked all the spells, magic items etc all put in the back in one place personally. That is my only critic of the layout.

So what's my rating? I am going to give this one a 4 star review. It is worth the money but I would have liked to have seen a page or so added to each encounter to expanded on them more. I think the encounters in this one is done a little better than the Forest book of the same series, but this one has less bonus material. Which is why I am giving them the same rating.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
