Dreamers, start your dungeons!
Newly translated into English with updated stats for the current edition by Stephane Marsaudon and with updated maps and a new alchemical formula, For Want of a Snail is a classic Rêve: the Dream Ouroboros scenario with a prescient dream, a scheming alchemist, a series of grisly murders, and a city with bizarre customs. As always with Rêve, the absurdist humor can turn quite deadly. This scenario by the game’s author, Denis Gerfaud, first appeared as Rêve d’Escargot in Casus Belli nº 43 for Rêve de Dragon.
Rêve dreamland encounters occur 1 in 7; why spend 13% of your time rerolling 8s on 1d8 when you could snag the awesomeness of GameScience’s d7?
