The adventure is written with AD&D (1e) in mind, but of course would suit any D&D variant. The adventure centres on the exploration of a maze-like giant ant colony located near a remote town. The main thing that makes this adventure different are the three tools used to generate/navigate labyrinths, i.e.:

:: The first option is a simple point crawl generator, e.g.:
C m1

:: The second uses a conceptual (map-less) ‘Labyrinth Move’ based mechanic, e.g.:C m2

:: The third is also a map-less based method, but this time using a 2D6 Hex-Flower navigation system (inclusive of chase mechanic), e.g.:C m3

There are some NPCs (with associated plot hooks linked to the ant colony), random monsters tables, random ‘dungeon dressing’ tables, and a map of the area surround the giant ant colony, e.g.:
