This is an adventure for all different types of roleplayers.

During gamenights, I enjoy the roleplay-part of an adventure the most where you try to talk your way out of a situation.

In my opinion 4th edition adventures are often reduced to a number of encounters and skill challenges (dice throwing). This adventure can be played in that way but many of the encounters come with plot-hooks that give the players the possibility to really shine, to really outwit the enemies. Adventures where there's more to it than dice-throwing can take more time to prepare but, in my opinion, that time is well spent.

The treasure to be found in undermountain is awesome as well. As a player I'd really be happy with some of the artifacts that can be found.

This adventure is a great step forward. I'm really looking forward to the next installment

Be aware that this isn't a pick up and play adventure. There is some work involved on the DM's part in setting up the finer points of each encounter. Having said that, the 1st level of undermountain is detailed in depth with over 70 rooms. Sadly no other dungeon levels are detailed.

You will need a copy of the Monster Vault: An Essential Dungeons & Dragons Kit or a DDI subscription to find the monsters it references.

There is plenty of room for adapting or customising the dungeon, and I think this will appeal to experienced dungeon masters.

This is a lovely, well constructed book, it has 3 stories inside that you can weave together or not use at all. I have to say as a new DM playing with new players it is a tad overwhelming i would definitely not choose this as a first adventure if your inexpirenced like myself but if you have the expirence definately pick this up as its a really fun, really large dungeon that has a surprise around every corner.

Not what I expected. It is all really low level stuff (1-3 mainly). Some things you can pinch for any level adventure, but some how I expected more. Nice artwork and that's about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars worthwild suppliment if running undermountain 17 Aug. 2013
By MARK S WILLIAMS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
primarily I purchased this 4th edition book to gain access to the undermountain poster map for my 3rd edition game. However I found the materials within the book to be quite useful if not somewhat different from my earlier materials on undermountain from 2 edition / 3rd edition. I found it easy to pick and choose what I wanted out of the book and use it in my campaign. Some of my players seemed to think that 4th edition's undermountain is deadlier than earlier versions, but that is totally not the case. 2nd edition undermountain was far worse. I found it easy to "scale" things up or down to be appropriate to the party. A very nice supplement and worth the purchase price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic supplement! 18 April 2012
By Joshua M. Ricard - Published on Amazon.com

Let me start by saying that Expedition to Undermountain was the last adventure I played in 3.5E, so I couldn't wait to get my mitts on this! And it really doesn't disappoint. It isn't the largest supplement, but it does a fantastic job of laying out the 1st level of Undermountain. Many iconic locations are still faithfully represented and the layouts are not presented in a way that are very instruction heavy. It leaves a lot of room for DMs to create on the fly, and to assist with that, it even includes random generation tables for both rooms and encounters! It comes with a fantastic poster map that has the entire floor map of the 1st level on one side and the interior of the Yawning Portal Inn on the other (as well as another poster map with a couple of decent battle map locations on either side). My only complaint is that it only covers the first level of Undermountain. In 3.5 "Expedition to Undermountain" covered the whole dungeon (in decent detail). And while this is a VERY expansive covering of the first level, it would have been really neat to see the second and third levels as well (at least). I would love to have 4th edition Skullport ready to visit, but I may just purchase "Expedition" so my group will be able to eventually continue their adventures once they are done with the first level.

Also, while this supplement is designed for levels 1-5, it can easily be adjusted to fit any level. All it takes is a good DM. A great purchase, I am already working it into my existing homebrew campaign!

We have a group that meets about once a month and used this adventure recently and was very pleased. The adventures were fun and I like how it gave you multiple options on how to play it. Good artwork and maps. I recommend it.
