    Earlier this week, I ran Pathfinder Scenario #45: Delirium’s Tangle, by Crystal Frazier, which features a maze that the characters must navigate to rescue someone. Because Mazes are Boring (as one sidebar boldly states), the process is abstracted to a series of skill checks. To make it interesting, there are multiple skills that can be used (though, naturally, Survival is easiest, to track the victim and abductors). If the party fails a check, they make no progress; if they fail by too much, they encounter a trap or monster.

    For the record, I recall Phil Brucato acknowledging that Doissetep (a big, weird, Gothic chantry/fortress in Mage: The Ascension was somewhat inspired by Gormenghast. Phil certainly knows his Peake. How well that came through can doubtless be debated.
