It works very, very well! I have been using the 'guts' of the contest
as a fast and dirty introduction adventure. I'm not too keen on the
Pavis area and doing my demo and instructional work in the Sartar, where
its less stinky.

I was using some conversions but I was hesitant to write them up here as
one should never steal thunder unless its a HeroQuest.

Currently, I'm converting Rainbow Mounds over for HW. Another
generation of players is subjected to the tender mercies of WhiteEye and
Slud and the gang.
