    Last minute one-time 3.5 game, Thursday night. Help?

    I need to find a short module -- something very fun, and which can be completed in about 4 hours. I'd like it to be for levels 6 to 10, somewhere in there. Anyone know of something free that I could download right away? Especially interested in something that you've actually played or DM'd, so that I have some assurance it's playtested.

    I'll have 4 players. There will be a traditional fighter type, but the other 3 players are up in the air. I suspect I'll end up with a duskblade & wizard (my summoner character, posted elsewhere). Not sure what the last guy will pick.

    Thanks for any help! Looking forward to seeing all the fun ideas!

    I was supposed to play a game called A Knight at Cromwell Mansion this past Thursday, and that would have been a 2 hour game. I would like you to play it and tell me how it went, because I don't think I'll be getting a chance any time soon.

    Okay, in seriousness though, I found a good cache of games way back when I was curious on modules. You can find them all here should you be curious. Yes, they are free, though some of the links are down, one of which is the Elder Evil one. Which rocks by the way. Perhaps some of them have been saved somewhere else?

    They're all good players who know the rules and are familiar with splatbooks, so I think they're able to handle weirdness. I'm probably the least adaptable.

    All the pre-gens that I have for them are probably optimized for mostly combat and some talky encounters. They're not super great PCs for something that is going to be 100% non-combat.

    Can't find my Dungeon PDF's. Sorry. I saved the ones with nice artwork to compliment the dialogue and descriptions. If I find it online again, but a bit late, would you still want me to send it to you?

    Ah, no, probably not. There are a few modules from Dungeon magazine that have been freely available, but if it's not one that is officially free, I'll keep looking for something else.

    So far The Alchemist's Eyrie sounds good, but probably too much to tackle in 4 hours. Also Ghosts of Aniel sounds great, but it's probably too little for 4 hours. Hasken's Manor might work.

    By "Dungeon PDFs" I did not mean PDFs of the Dungeon Magazine. I meant PDFs of different un-published dungeons that I've found online. Sorry for the incorrect capitalization, my English still needs work. ^^

    Here's a thread with links to a lot of free choices -

    http://www.enworld.org/forum/general...ture-path.html

    In particular, Cooperative Dungeon 02 - Halls of Anarchy is a 7th-level adventure that might work, though I'd suggest cutting out some of the lesser rooms/encounters for a four hour session.
