June 21st, 2007: This week we make mockery of
Gary Holian and Steve Greer's excellent Spinecastle themed adventure and backdrop for
Dungeon #148. This bittersweet article almost didn't make the final four issues after
Paizo's announced demise, luckily the Greyhawk deities intervened to bring this to us
in time. As to the subject of the parody, I spent alot of time playing on an NES emulator
to get some screenshots like I did for the popular
Irongate article not long ago.
Unfortunately, much like Spinecastle's bedraggled populace, I had a rough time with
it and I still haven't beat the damned game. Maybe the gods of Evil will have better
luck...so having said that, onto the comic. Enjoy!
