The Alexandrian

Keep on the ShadowfellKeep on the Shadowfell was the inaugural product for 4th Edition. I was fairly disappointed with the quality and the content of the module, but I wanted to playtest the new edition. So I decided to do a fairly expansive remix to give the adventure a stronger backbone and a richer mythology; adding depth and breadth where necessary.

You can download a complete cheat sheet of the entire remix here:

    Thanks for the kind words, Andreas. But, as Mortegro points out, the underlying material is all copyrighted by Wizards. The best I’ll be able to do, at the end of this series, is post my complete cheat sheet for running the adventure.

    If you do like the type of work I do on adventure design, I do have several Adventure Supplements available in either PDF or print formats. I’m hoping to release more in the near future. (Now that 4th Edition is out, DMP is making some hard decisions about our future direction.)

    I also have several OOP adventures there were published by Fantasy Flight Games. You can see a list of those in my Bibliography.

    Thus ends the self-pimpage. Wink

    Seeing as most of what he’s rewritten is still property of WotC, I think Wizards should just hire him to write for them. It makes perfect sense to me, but I bet they’d be too afraid of his formidable skills of analysis and fair criticism.

    This entire adventure seems to come together very nicely with your writing. Ever consider putting it all together into a final product and releasing it later? I’m pretty sure there are publishers out there (us included) that would love something as interesting as this released. 😀
