The Doom of Listonshire
The Duke is Dead. Can You Save the Duchy?

A distant province on the frontier of civilization, Listonshire mourns a beloved leader, cut down by a dark curse that bedevils the region with ill luck, misery, an ambitious baron and all manner of hideous monsters. Its people stay in their homes, and trade has ground almost to a halt. Only a few know the truth: That one of the duke's heirs survives, and can prevent the treacherous baron from taking the throne. Only these few dare speak up and call for help. They only await stalwart heroes to answer them.
An Unpredictable Quest in a Dozen Parts
Listonshire is designed as the ultimate adventuring ground. A dozen different locations, wilderness and dungeon, full of conversation and combat, stand between the heroes and success. To restore the ducal family to power, they need find not merely the missing heir, but proof of her right to rule, and evidence of the baron's deceit. They must comb tree and hillside, lake and catacomb; face monsters both familiar and utterly alien; and survive the wrath of the being from whose power the curse is drawn: The Oinodaemon, Lord of Plagues.
The Doom of Listonshire also contains a simple system of random determination, allowing the DM to place the party's goals in random locations, or as he chooses, making this a different adventure each time it's played!
This adventure for the D20 System is released through Kenzer & Company.

Pretty much in the 5th- to 7th-level range; maybe a bit higher or lower based on party size.Ari Marmell

Sounds cool. Another one to keep an eye out for. Just say NO! to 4th edition...
I'm not asking for characters to be lawful stupid. I want characters who care, who want to be heroes, arent scared of doing the right thing, and players who try to help make the campaign more heroic.
Remember, the DM is just as, if not more so, important than the players. Players don't always come first.

Here I go again, this time in the right place Image
My copy arrived on monday and I'm about halfway through, and I like it very much so far. The drag and drop concept of clues is very interesting, so is the focus more on wilderness, which I really like. Image
One minor point with me is to manage to get a 5th-level group to stumble upon this backwater-duchy. But as I see, it might be manageable to mingle it with Timber Rivalry from Glades of Death, which goes from 2nd-4th.
And apart from the story, very nice read, mouseferatu.
On the product value: though I prefer the hardback/perfect-bound from other products, I can overlook ist if the content is good.
Sincerely,
Heffer
