The Firestarters were contracted by the Dohjaks to clean out the long abandoned and shifting ruins of Ce-C'el beneath their base. Providing a variety of paid targets, the Dohjaks were most hopeful that some of their soldiers would be returned to them.
For their first delve
into unexplored ruins, the party survived largely unscathed. They
befriended dungeon gimps, found a save tent, met the curry-obsessed
Lumigoy, captured and tortured some Kermen, avoided turtle cultists, and
fought dearly with the Gongwarped Fishermen. Succeeding in returning a
badly injured Dohjak to his brethren, the Firestarters emerged from the yeast-choked ruins with no
worse than moderate hospitalization awaiting them.

This was my first chance to play around with the notion of a megadungeon in Gathox. I took note of the work Keith Davies did with his node-based megadungeon design and Jaquay'ed the living hell out of it. The resulting mix provided all sorts of revealing interconnections and, ultimately, surprising and delightful play for the entire table.
