One Thing: "Lava Clock"

One thing I love about Sterling Heibeck's "Lava Clock" is the sense of urgency and impending doom from the beginning to the very end.  As characters navigate the dungeon, the hands of the eponymous lava clock begin turning, causing a veritable lava storm to erupt in the main chamber of the volcano.  Many of the locations are precarious as it is, but even more deadly during one of these minor eruptions.

After fighting and puzzling their way to the chamber of flame and the adventure's conclusion, all while racing against the lava-clock, the part will be confronted with an imminent, full blown eruption that will kill them if they cannot escape in time.

Nice work Sterling!
