Raiders of Oakhurst Reloaded -- Free 4E Adventure (Ennie Nominated!)
*** FLASH ***
Raiders of Oakhurst - Reloaded was nominated for a 2008 Ennie!
*** FLASH ***
With the success of the original Raiders of Oakhurst playtest adventure, I decided to go ahead and expand the adventure to make it more complete and provide several full sessions worth of adventuring.
I give you Raiders of Oakhurst - Reloaded.
Synopsis: Answering a call for help from the town of Oakhurst, the PCs track a band of kobold raiders to their lair and find more than they bargained for.
Update: Grumpy Celt RPG Reviews has a comparison of Raiders of Oakhurst Reloaded to Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh as an analysis of "Old School versus New School" adventure design.
1. Xorn contributed excellent Dunjinni maps for this adventure.
2. Tovokas put together some excellent outdoor maps.
3. Available at Reloaded product page with free .pdf link
4. And now there is a dedicated web site for Oakhurst adventures: No Name Publishing.

yep, I was already pondering using your adventure for my playtest, and having maps sold it for me.
Is your game having issues with Grind? Check out Stalker0's Guide to Anti-Grind
Do you want a skill challenge system that is less mechanical and encourages more roleplaying? Try my Obsidian Skill Challenge System
Like the core 4e system, but prefer a more balanced system with additional options? Try my Alternate Core Skill Challenge System

So, has WotC contacted you yet about working in their PR department, Olgar?
Never lie, steal, cheat or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

Ironically, even though I've put a lot of work into this adventure, I'm still undecided on my future with 3.5E vs. 4E. I enjoyed our 4E playtest enough to order the core books, but my group and I have so much invested in 3.5 that we haven't gotten enough use out of that I'm not sure if we'll actually make the switch.
I mostly just like putting together fun adventures, and think it's a shame that WotC didn't pass out a sample dungeon or two to go with the playtest characters at D&D XP so the rest of us can share the fun. The original piece I put together just felt incomplete ... hope everyone have fun with the expanded version. I hope to have the NPC section completed and the rest of the adventure polished up by the end of the week.

Link incoming for first map.
I'll try to shell out one per day, at least. As you will see, I added some lighting effects. If the color or strength is off, I can adjust it easily. I'm going to kick Olgar in the hind parts if he doesn't stop adding waterfalls. I don't really have a good texture for it (and too lazy to grab the art), so I just fart with the thing till it kinda looks right.
EDIT - Map up:
Stone Table, Level 1
Stone Table, Level 2
The Lost Tomb
More to come!
EDIT 2008-Mar-24: Stone Table, Level 2 added
EDIT 2008-Mar-27: The Lost Tomb added. Should have crag tomorrow.
