    The adventure is an 80 page book, including front cover. Full color throughout, includes small shots of poster maps as encounter keys. Also includes a couple of non-tactical maps (like a map of the area, map of a walled village.)

    The 3 double-sided poster maps cover dungeon and wilderness encounter areas.

    The Quick-Start Rules booklet is 16 pages, including front cover. Ten pages are the pregens, which include level-up info for 2nd and 3rd levels. The other 5 pages are pretty much what we have seen from the DDXP demos.

    hmm, 5 pages of rules...assuming some is embeded in the pregens, and some in the adventure itself?

    Ooooh, new pregens. Can you post details or no? I don't really need any spoilers on the adventure, except maybe what the adventure hooks are so I can plan ahead.

    A few quick questions:

    What is the sex of the pregens?

    Could you give us a list of monsters (spoiler them) so we can start gathering the minis we'll need?

    I just want to say "Ooooh! Dragonborn!"

    And a two-handed maul - that's got to have some fun powers attached to it.

    Yes, rules are embedded in the adventure. There is a chart for Attack Modifiers, a page of combat conditions, 2 pages on using skills and DCs including nearly a fulll column on Knowledge Skills. (By the way, Intimidate is against the target's Will defense).
