Upcoming Adventure Review

The following are adventures that are currently in the queue as we transition from the Social Group to the LPF Forum:

submitted a new adventure for level 1 characters for review by the judges. Let me know what you all think.

Okay, Finished my first legit readthrough of Carrion Hill, and I have a handle on some of what I want to do to streamline, etc. Am now trying to pick a spot to put the town. The adventure calls for swampy stuff, lots of rain, smells, and catacombs (because what's lovecraftian nastiness without catacombs).

Looking over the wiki, it sounds like Heth might be the best area to place the city. It's already got a 'rotting' feel that fits well atmospherically. The only major issue I have is getting PC's that far away. I mean, it looks like several months' worth of travel if I'm finally understanding how the map's set up? Twice as far, at least, as my Ouhm-city adventure, and that was a crazy-long journey.

I noticed two other things, though: (1) we have an unplaced Athrak desert (at least, I can't find it on the map). Since House Boraga gets its power from holding a gate to said desert, I think we can assume it's far from Venza. (2) Heth's history explicitly references desert nomads, so I assume there must be some kind of desert region near to it.

Anyone have an objection my pinning the Athrak to the un-named area on the East of Heth, then? I figured my hook would involve Boraga in some way, so the PC's can take the gate to cut most of their travel time.


Alrighty, after much gnashing of teeth, Kostry Kopec (Carrion Hill) submitted to ye judges. I apologize in advance for whatever glaring errors are involved.

Just submitted 'Fury Steps In' for approval.

The only tricky part of the numbers was when Fury is aided by NPCs; I noted the adjustments I made and why. I'm *fairly* confident I handled the adjustments logically.

Thanks Judges!
If I am missing an adventure review request, please add yours to this thread so it doesn't slip through the cracks.

Thanks!

Judges, post here if you are going to work on one of these adventures. I plan on diving in this weekend, but don't want to duplicate work. When I start I will add a post here that says which one I am starting with and that I have started a review of it.

Thanks!

I am working on my replacement for Ariel. She will be 6th level pushing 7th. Are the adventures in the pipeline going to handle this?

Dalkon's submission is a 1st level adventure, jkason's should be a 5th level adventure and Qik's is a solo adventure.

I don't think we have a 6th/7th level in the queue at the moment unless I am wrong about the adventure level of jkason's submission.

Actually, I was thinking that I was going to play with Fury since he is around 5th level now. I thought we had enough of those for a group. So I was surprised that you are taking off on a solo thing. I personally don't need a solo adventure, but if that is the only option...

Oh. I wasn't aware of your plans or which characters are free/soon to be free. My apologies. Fury's been inactive for over two months so when Qik announced two weeks ago that he'd be willing to run an adventure for someone I jumped on the opportunity.

No worries, mate. :)

I have been so busy that I was not able to think about that much and I had not truly decided to retire Ariel until last weekend and then I things got crazy with my schedule.

If Qik can flex it for two characters, that would be cool. If not, I understand. :)

While I'm certainly open to having you aboard, pm, and I hate the idea of having you currently lounge, I'm not sure if the adventure would work for anyone other than Fury, as it really is centered around his character, both thematically and mechanically. Plus, I'm going to be on the road a lot over the next two weeks, so I'm not sure if I'd be in a position to do the kind of tweaking necessary to accommodate another. I'll see what the judges say when it gets a look, and if I need to do a bunch of tweaking anyway, I'll let you know.

If it will take a week or two until you are ready, I will be ready by then. If things work, great. If not, maybe the adventure of jkasen's will be appropriate. :)

I don't imagine a level 5 adventure is going to be some kind of cake walk for someone just one level higher. Or, for that matter, that it's a death sentence for anyone of level 4. Judge opinions may vary; my ability to accurately judge CR is at best uneven (which is why I opted to adapt a pre-generated adventure than try to generate a level 5 adventure on my own).

Since I am not looking, as I might be playing in it, you might need to do some rough calculations on time-based awards. If the characters are leveling up, you need to potentially allow for scaling up.

But, if your party is balancing level 4s with level 6s, you still get an average of 5. Unless my math is off. :p

Dockside Diversion (4th level) has morphed into Still Waters, pt. 1 and has been shared. Yes, I was a bad DM/judge and we've begun playing it already. It is brief, only going up to the first major decision point. I'll submit other parts as we progress; I figure smaller chunks will be easier to look over.

Cool. I got lazy last weekend and didn't get around to reviewing any of the adventures. With the long Thanksgiving Weekend I should be able to look at some.

I will post here letting people know what I am looking at so another judge doesn't duplicate work.

Reviewing this one since it is already in progress and being a little shorter a good warmup for some of the longer ones!

And this is APPROVED.
