Summary
The Lost City happens to be one of my absolute favorite B/X D&D adventures of all time. This 5E conversion expands on the classic tale in a slew of fun and unique ways too. Unfortunately, the same problems which have plagued the OAR series from the start remain; usability issues at the table, a lack of a way to easily share handouts with your players, unintuitive layout for ease of use, and more. Happily though, this is still an extremely well cone homage and conversion which many gamers will love.
