I've been working on adventures. A handful of them. And I notice I don't have a unified approach to any of them. Not that needs to be, but sometimes its helpful. When you do the introduction its pretty much says the same thing, this is for x number of characters at x level. Please change anything you like. There is some standard stuff in every adventure.
Here's what I propose. Propose? Here's what I plan on doing. I want to develop a stat block for the adventure itself. For easy reference for perspective GMs and so the writer can save precious space. I probably should put this out there until I've thought about this more, but I rarely like to think too much. Causes cramps.
This is a sample, but it would be a in a block on the cover of the adventure.
Level: 3rd to 5th
# Characters: 6 to 8
Setting: Village & Underground Dungeon Crawl
Difficulty Level: Medium
The last three have qualifying answers, but I would keep it to a three or four tier answer system. Difficulty: easy, medium and hard.
Size: small, medium, large.
Rating: family, teen, mature.
In general, the basic information is delivered at a glance. There are probably a few categories that could be added. If you have a suggestion please do or maybe something could be changed in what I proposed.
