I share my thoughts about the new 5E Dungeons & Dragons adventure, Scarlet Citadel, from Kobold Press. Is this old school inspired dungeon delve a must have to add to your D&D adventure collection? Or will you find your face be turning scarlet in anger when you learn about the circumstances around getting the most out of this adventure? You’ll find out!

Summary
The Scarlet Citadel adventure itself is good yet not great. I found a lot to like about it but the ecosystem of the dungeon seems scattershot and disconnected. Five of the six levels are good but I'd make wholesale changes to the final level. Where I had a big problem with the adventure is in the fact that there are no fewer than five other Kobold Press products you need to own in order to get the most out of this adventure and nowhere is that ever indicated to a potential buyer. If you already own the Creature Codex and Tome of Beasts from Kobold Press, I'd say this adventure is worth picking up. If you don't own those two titles you've either got a ton of work ahead of you adapting this adventure or, in my opinion, are better served just taking a pass.
