2. I’ve been puzzling over this, too. From the examples (page 55 & 59) I believe the first number in the Themes column is the countdown. The examples list a small dungeon with two themes, countdown two, and a huge dungeon with three themes, countdown five. When the number of themes is not diced for, number of themes & their countdown is always the same.

3. Yeah, I’ve always made the countdown equal the number of themes.

4. Mark Tygart Yes.

S0 Nathan Roberts EACH theme has a countdown equal to the number of themes?

5. Yes, that’s right. It’s on page 54:

“The Themes column on this table refers to both the number of themes and the size of each countdown.”

6. Damn. I must have read that page 4 times and missed it! Thanks all!

7. Son of a bug bear. I missed that as well. Thanks mate
