Noticed this was just released and moved to the top of “Community Traveller” on Drivethru. Anyone check it out yet?

I wrote it. ;)

It was part of an adventure series I ran as preparation for my "Pirates of Drinax" campaign, to set the scene and populate the background with details. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask!

Just a minor detail:
I'm 100% sure you read the Exocet description in The Borderland: "The dominant form of life is fungus, which grows rampantly in most areas" (page 23). However, the dig site in your free preview is located in a jungle. Is this a mistake, or you had something similar to Nausicaä's toxic jungle on mind?

In my mind, the jungle is made up of giant (and not so giant, of course) mushrooms of different shapes, "classical" trees partly covered in fungal slime, and an undergrowth of ferns and filamentous lichen. I didn't have Nausicaä in mind, but it's a great inspiration for sure!

I suppose my specific question is “Is it good enough that I should buy it?” I’m confident I know your opinion on that question. :D

Personally, I would say "yes". :)
