For Sale! Finally.

Well I have finally gone and done it.  I have my first adventure, Knowledge Illuminates, for sale at RPGNow.  This is the first in my One-Shot Adventure Series.  Like the description reads, these are smaller dungeons designed to be completed in a single session.  But, with all the adventures I write there are several possibilities that will lead to other adventures.  I use a sandbox style approach to the adventure so the party can explore the countryside as well as the dungeon itself. 

The adventure is split into four sections.  The first is the introduction and background information the GM will find helpful to run the adventure.  The second section is the countryside with various locations described.  The players can explore the area in any way they choose.  The third section is the dungeon itself.  And the final section is where a new spell, magic item, plant and creature are described. 

The ruleset I used is Swords & Wizardry, but everything can easily be adjusted to fit any of the other retro clones or the original itself. 

Rob Conley of Bat in the Attic did the maps for me, my current gaming group helped me playtest it and my fantastic wife edited it.  What art I did use for this product I got from The Forge Studios.  Seriously, it was fun to write.  No so much fun doing the layout and figuring out why pictures and paragraphs move mysteriously on the page, but I swore and got through it.  I hope those who get it enjoy.

  10. @Tim: I think you (or the Fantasy Grounds random number generators) have been your worst enemies. You don't need me piling on.

  11. Rusty > No argument there. It's amazing that FG didn't crumple up my character sheet on screen and toss it into a trash can.

  12. @Tim: Even though it is difficult to recapture the "you had to be there" feel of a great gaming moment, that sequence of dice rolls and the consequences were unreal. There is a great blog post in there somewhere.
