Mmy first reaction on reading the adventure background was a vague sense of deja vu, just a "That sounds sorta kinda familiar" tingle. I saw that art and the vague feelings was quickly followed by "Yowza, it is familiar!" The giant scarab beastie is all grown up now, upgraded to 3.5, with a whole adventure built around it! It's got great art, a massive Jump bonus, and the word "refractory" in its writeup. I'm so glad to see it's doing well out there in the big shared world.
I have designer Michael Kortes and artist Ramon Perez to thank for adopting them. Thanks, guys. I guess people just love the Beetles.
