The story so far: Created centuries ago with dark magics informed by gluttony, cast by a wizard who has since lost interest, Candy Mountain stands as a blemish of sweetness protruding from an otherwise bland countryside.

I needed a quick, fun, low prep Troika one shot for my  group so I downloaded this on a whim the other night, literally because I liked the colors and thought an all candy theme was funny.

HOLY CRAP!!

This was one of the tightest, well put together, easiest to run adventures I have ever run! there were SO MANY hooks and things for my players to explore! so many things to do and weird people to meet! 

the Format was extremely easy to use and perfectly intuitive, I was amazed at how much information was packed into so little room (and OMG that map was gorgeous, thank you so much for publishing the PDF in layers so I could copy just the map to show my players without any of the info). I especially loved all the little happenings tables. The candy creature generation charts were off the hook and so easy to use I was literally creating creatures at the table and that was virtually no time loss  and no awkward pauses.

My players had a BLAST and barely even scratched the surface of Candy Mountain.  What was supposed to be a simple one shot has somehow become a campaign, but I'm not worried, because I think it's seriously going to be one of the easiest campaign I have ever run.

Thank You so much for creating this!
