For those not familiar with Barrowmaze it and draws on Gregs erudite and extensive knowledge of popular and gaming culture, it's filled with little references and in-jokes without becoming a groanathon, although there is a streak of dark humour that runs through it, the overall atmosphere is of quiet brooding and the silence of the tomb! Whilst written for Labyrinth Lord, which makes it instamagically compatible with B/X D&D, it's useable with pretty much any RPG or skirmish rules with a little bit of effort on behalf of the gamesmaster.
Part of the project is also to include a box-set of Official Barrowmaze miniatures, released through Otherworld. The project hasn't yet reached it's funding goal, several of the minis and the art and design has already been completed, so it's pretty clear how much heart Greg is backing this with, and rightly so in my estimation, it's good sh*t. Yes of course I'm involved so I'm going to be biased towards it, but really, it's like Caverns of the Dead writ large, which is exactly my sort of thing...

Nice concept, well executed - living statues that look like they should be straight out of a Harryhausen movie. So have a look, see what's going on... Barrowmaze Complete on Indiegogo
