Help Wanted - Adventure Template

This is a great innovation in adventure creation...a "concept" adventure, rather than a fully detailed one. Rather than providing a detailed encounter that may or may not fit into your world, it provides a solid, innovative idea plus a framework for the encounter which includes writing prompts to let you fit it to your world and style of gaming. And there are hooks to other stories, if you or the players wish to pursue them, or it can be a pure stand-alone encounter.

It's also level-less, because there are no defined stat-blocks. It can be written and run for first level characters wandering around, or high level characters encountering something truly sinister and dangerous.

My only critique is that the prompts often tie to specific items on the map which are not obvious. The module would be better if it provided a short section in the module that says "here's what you're looking at" for each point of interest int he map. (There's a shrine here, etc.) to spawn your imagination more easily.

I'd also love it if the maps had a more detailed version of the maps, ideally good enough that they could be imported to a system like Roll20...but that's not a must-have.

That said, it's PWYW, and certainly worth the recommended $1 cost for an innovative encounter.

Neat template for creating an encounter. Comes with maps, an NPC, possible plot hooks, and a lot of prompts.

If you're looking for something to grab-and-go, this is not it. If you're looking for inspiration, worth grabbing.
