NAVAH: The Caverns ‘neath the Mad God’s Stirrup

I dug out the first adventure I ever wrote for Navah, at least I think it was the first one, from back around 1981. Isle of the Sharkmen and In a Pickle at Dill were the first, but that was before Navah, with one of my earlier worlds. But this one still had the Runequest stats, and even some of the D&D stats for the monsters. And I lost the map, so I had to recreate it using Dave’s Mapper. 

The occasion was a visit by my folks, so we played a three generation Navah game — my dad, my wife and I, and my kids, who are back from college. Good times! The adventure held up well, though we only got halfway through it in the afternoon. But it was a lot of fun. Wish my folks lived closer!

The best part was the songs. There were various teleportations within the caverns that were triggered by songs, and people had to figure out which songs would trigger them, and then sing them. It was still fun after all these years.
