Shaggradd's Hives of Peril is a multi-player role-playing module written by Steve Jackson and illustrated by Duncan Smith. It was published in 1984 in Fighting Fantasy - The Introductory Role-Playing Game by Puffin Books. There are currently no announced plans to republish the book as part of the modern Wizard series.
“ This is a full-scale adventure set in a dungeon underneath a great oak tree. Shaggradd, a Black Elf, discovered the dungeon herself and bought the land around the tree. Although she realised there were considerable treasures hidden in the dungeon, she was not a swordswoman and would be no match for the creatures and traps guarding these riches. Instead she now allows parties of treasure-hunting adventurers to enter and explore the dungeons, charging them a fee of 10 per cent of their plunder when - or if - they can get out alive. ”
The mini adventure follows the rules set down in Fighting Fantasy - The Introductory Role-Playing Game.
- 6 Provisions
- If the GamesMaster is feeling generous then they may also allow the players to take a Potion with them (see Game System for generic fantasy setting choices).
The illustrations were by Duncan Smith. Due to the small number of references each paragraph receives an illustration to match. There were 39 full page illustrations and 5 minor repeated illustrations scattered throughout the text.
The black and white map was also by Duncan Smith.
