Shadowed Keep on the Borderlands (Raging Swan Press)

Shadowed Keep on the Borderlands
(Raging Swan Press)
A few days ago Shadowed Keep on the Borderlands was released by Raging Swan Press.  To my eyes, it's a storming tribute to the low level modules sold with the early D&D boxed sets - but that's an interpretation.  It's Pathfinder and D&D3.5 friendly - although some of the layout for encounters reminded me a lot of DnD4, but that just goes to show what a slick design job has been done on this adventure (or adventures I should say).

There's plenty for a DM to get their teeth into.  There's many "freeze-frame" encounters, but there's guidelines for situational flexibility, should you want to make it a "living" dungeon.

Shadowed Keep on the Borderlands contains b/w maps, drawn by yours truly, similar those I mentioned in this entry.  Oddly, I thought that Creighton (-Broadhurst of Raging Swan Press) would be adding titles to the maps - I must chat to him about this. ;)

I'm extremely proud to have been part of this project, amongst the other artists, writers, editors, play-testers etc.  Also, look out for the character portraits by the mighty Larry Elmore (I suspect that these were originally part of his Dragon Lance art, allowed to live again with new incarnations)  The writing is slick and DMs and their players will get a lot of mileage out of this product.
