Review of EX1: Dungeonland
The EX module code stands for extensionas the dungdonland is designed to be inserted as an independent addition to another, ongoing scenario. The adventure begins with Dunveonland falling down an earthen tunnel. It is suggested that the portal to Dungeonland be a barrel within the dungeon of Castle Greyhawk, but the Dungeon Master DM may work in any premise to get them to this stage.
Upon landing, the PCs find themselves in a surreal, oddly-shaped hallway which contains The Pool of Tears and the entrance to a diminutive garden. Once they have explored these areas, they cross a fungi forest and arrive at The Wilds of Dungeonland, which is essentially a wooded area containing several connected clearings.

He reviewed the module along with The Land Beyond the Magic Mirrorand enjoyed the “rich vein of humour” that runs through the two modules, both of which “offer players an exciting and humorous time”. Bambra felt that although the modules were humorous in tone, some encounters could turn nasty, and that making them for high level characters makes them inaccessible for lower level ones. However, he concluded by saying that if players do have higher level characters available then “by all means play them, you won’t regret it.
In his book Heroic WorldsLawrence Schick said that the scenario was “inspired by Alice and Wonderlandbut with the whimsy replaced by opportunities for slaughter”.
