Hi everyone

I am looking to get hold of Copy of the Trapdoor Dungeon Crawl rules. I understand that these used to be available to purchase on Wargames Vault but Are no longer available in the online store.

I know these rules used to be called cavern Crawl and I believe I have the final version in that format. 2.8. Does anybody have a link or contact email where I can get a copy? PDF will be fine.

my copy of the rules has an email you could try: Gareth Shaw at "trapdoorgames at outlook dot com"

I, too, am looking for those rules. It appears Gareth Shaw has completely disappeared from the hobby, seemingly around early 2015. I hope everything is okay. Emilio's link takes one to an earlier iteration of the rules when they were still called "Cavern Crawl," but it'd be great to be able to lay one's hands on the final "Trapdoor" rules. I tried to purchase them from Wargame Vault, but they've been removed from there, too.

Has anyone got any up-to date contact information or a copy of the rules they would be happy to part with? I tried the outlook address but the inbox is closed. I'm trying to get on to Lead Adventure to PM the author but their draconian security wont even let me get my account registered.
