New 5E Adventures Coming From Goodman Games

Goodman Games, which produced Fifth Edition Fantasy #1: Glitterdoom and Fifth Edition Fantasy #2: The Fey Sisters' Fate has announced two new adventures. Fifth Edition Fantasy #3: The Pillars of Pelagia and Fifth Edition Fantasy #4: War-Lock are 16-page adventures by Chris Doyle and Michael Curtis respectively for 3rd-level characters, and costs $9.99. They are slated for "early 2015" and will be Kickstarted. Thanks to Jeremy for the scoop!


Fifth Edition Fantasy #3: The Pillars of Pelagia. Along the windswept sea coast are several natural stone columns, sacred to the Sea Goddess Pelagia. One of these pillars is the tower of a reclusive wizard, a devout follower of Pelagia. But the wizard has gone missing, and the locals suspect foul play. Surely a powerful wizard must have many enemies! A band of fledgling heroes is tasked with entering one of the Pillars of Pelagia to contend with all manner of magical defenses, while uncovering cryptic clues to the wizard’s disappearance planted by an unknown benefactor. The insidious evil plot they uncover could spell eventual doom for the surface world. But the Pillars are sacred to Pelagia, and the Sea Goddess herself might just play a minor role, aiding the heroes as they attempt to thwart a nefarious plot.

Fifth Edition Fantasy #4: War-Lock. Devilish sorcery and ancient steel merge in the form of a reborn menace rising in the wild hills on civilization’s verge. As the badlands burn with wildfire, an arcane warlord gathers his monstrous troops under his tattered banner. He is rumored to be immortal, and it will take tremendous bravery, immense cunning, and more than a little luck for stalwart adventurers to end his campaign of malice. Can your mighty heroes locate the War-lock’s one weakness before his forces drown the realm in blood and fire?

Sixteen page adventures for $10 each is way too high of a price. I'm sure they are good quality adventures, but the price seems ridiculous when an equivalent 96 page adventure would cost $60! For a comparison you can buy a 96 page Pathfinder Adventure Path PDF, which are among the best in the industry, for a total of $16. Goodman Games 5e adventures cost six times as much per page!
 
Agree ^^

Based on the review of Glitterdoom, a 13 chamber dungeon with an item or two and a new monster is not worth $10. Nor would I even classify it as an "Adventure" as they have.

Certainly Glitterdoom was somewhere halfway between "an adventure" and "a side-trek," roughly the size of an old Dungeon magazine adventure. Good for what it was, but felt lightweight compared to the traditional module size.

#1 and #2 aren't "flying off the shelf" at my FLGS. A handful moved in a week; I'll see how many are left later today.

Of course, those 96 page adventure paths do have the disadvantage of being adventure paths.

I really like the look of these "side trek" modules - they give you a plot, NPCs and rough adventure, and you can add on whatever more you like. But... they're $15 here is Australia. It feels a bit steep for 16 pages. I would gladly buy a PDF for $5 (but it seems they are hardcopy only).

Perhaps a better comparison would be the Pathfinder modules, which are 32 pages and appear to cost $10 for the PDF versions. Goodman Games 5e adventures are still twice as much money per page.
