      Love that art. I was a little worried about how this book would come together, but reading these pages makes me feel better and more excited about it.

      Pimple-faced teenager carrying what looks like a wooden sword into Undermountain? Perhaps the title of that art should be "Feeding time at Undermountain"... :-)

      For my megadungeon campaign I set up starting quests like the hunt for magic items. On top of the cash, selling the item also nets XP.

      I also set up XP rewards for being the first adventurers to map areas . . . and actually return the map topside to The Cartographer. This one is actually meant to the primary method of gaining XP, since monsters are worth only a quarter of their listed XP.
