Description

This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we brave the unknown to explore the legendary Dungeons & Dragons hexcrawl, X1 - The Isle of Dread. We discuss the allure of empty maps, dinosaurs, volcanoes, King Kong and more. We also touch on some parallels between X1 and Chaosium's Griffin Mountain for RuneQuest and the 5e D&D campaign book Tomb of Annihilation. Best pack a lunch, no telling how long this trip will be.

(20 minutes, give or take, actually)
