The Grinding Gear
If this adventure does not drain every drop of your blood, then it will disintegrate you. If it does not disintegrate you, it will electrocute you. If it does not electrocute you, it will starve you. If it does not starve you, it still will defeat you in a battle of wits.
You very well may survive.
But only the best will win the treasure!
If you think you're ready, if you've got the guts, tell your group's referee that you want to test yourself against THE GRINDING GEAR. Then you can answer the question:
Are You Good Enough?
The Grinding Gear presents a self-contained adventure setting consisting of an abandoned inn and the dungeon below it. It includes over 50 detailed locations, three referee maps, a player handout, plus referee notes and "designer notes" that tie everything together.
The print version is a sixteen page adventure booklet surrounded by three detached glossy heavy-stock covers featuring maps, artwork, and the player handout.
The PDF version comes with both A4 (36 pages including all notes and maps) and Letter-sized (37 pages) formats, laid out specifically for the PDF format and fully bookmarked.
Challenging. Cruel. Rewarding.
The Grinding Gear.
For low-level characters.

Some advance reviews are in!
"Another absolute gem" - Jeff Rients
"As old school as it gets" - Von der Seifenkiste herab...
"So here we have a product that is what it says on the tin: a low-level one-shot puzzle dungeon that tests the player's dungeoneering skills." - Playing D&D with Porn Stars
"Looks so pro we might as well start calling Jim a sellout"
Death Frost Doom
"Death Frost Doom is, quite simply, an inspiring product, managing to combine an old school agnosticism toward "story" with the kind of atmosphere and ambience one tends to associate with newer understandings of roleplaying." - Grognardia
"I certainly could recommend this product to anyone who enjoys old-school fantasy play, particularly with that horror/weird-tale twist." - RPG Pundit
No Dignity in Death: The Three Brides
"It's a bold, original product that shows off the true potential of the old school renaissance to use the wisdom of the past as a springboard for new ventures that avoid the mistakes of the past." - Grognardia
"Fundamentally different than anything TSR ever published." - Geoffrey McKinney, Dragonsfoot and RPG.net review
People of Pembrooktonshire
"Nearly all of the NPCs, in and of themselves, are interesting and quite a number of them are sheer genius." - Grognardia
"In a lot of ways, this book lays the foundation for understanding how to set up a political or role-playing heavy sandbox setting more than anything I have read." - Savage Swords of Athanor
