I’ve written a 294 page 4th Edition D&D adventure, broken into 7 chapters. I’m looking for a DM with 4th edition experience to read it and provide me with some feedback. Of course I’d be happy to send you a copy if you are not experienced with 4th edition, or if you are not a DM. I’d be thrilled beyond words to hear that someone wanted to run it, but for now, I’d be more than content with a little feedback.

If you are interested send me your e-mail address in a private message and I’ll e-mail it along to you. Due to the images in the adventure the entire size is over 20 MB, but I can send it in a few chunks if that’s helpful.

This writing project has taken me about a year. I used to be an avid D&D Dungeon Master. Writing for computer games gradually took over for me about 10-15 years ago as my gaming friends scattered around the states and as I got married and had kids. About a year ago, I quit writing modules for Neverwinter Nights 2. It just took too much time away from my family and the progress was quite slow. It became more about programming and less about storytelling and true gaming. I did pick up the core rulebooks just over two years ago, and excitedly listened to the initial 4th edition podcasts on RPGMP3. It helped me get a better sense of the game mechanics, but nothing substitutes for actual game play. Unfortunately that's just not in the cards for me now.

I could have written a balanced 1st or 2nd edition module without half trying, I have loads of experience. However I felt very compelled to write 4th edition material. I remain most concerned about game balance. I have a wealth of experience writing and running games, but none with 4th edition. They seem to have some idiot proof formulates suggested in the DMG, but this is what I worry about this the most.

The first two chapters are fairly well edited thanks to my wife. Chapters 3-5 have had light editing from me, but need more editing. Chapters 6-7 are in need of some cleanup, but despite the typos, and other grammatical problems, I’m sure someone could wade through them.

Again, if you are interested in taking a look at what I’ve done please send me your e-mail address in a private message. If someone is actually interested in running it after taking a look, please let me know how it goes.

Best regards,

Ernie Noa

While Hal's a busy bee, who knows-- maybe someone else (hint hint other groups) will do it on an audio....

I'd truly be more than happy with a little feedback, but hearing it played would be utterly fantastic. 8)
