I wanted to share a 4th edition D&D adventure I wrote between 2009 and 2010. It's called, "Hythum", the name of the world where the story takes place. It started out as a Neverwinter Nights 1 module, then I tried to convert it to Neverwinter Nights 2. The project was too large and complicated, with my kids growing I couldn't finish it. 4th edition D&D came out and although I don't really have the time or opportunity to play right now, I wanted to read about it and learn it. I decided to write it as a 4th edition pen and paper module.

It's quite large, about 400 pages if I recall correctly. It should take a group of 4 or 5 brand new 1st level characters to 10th level.

Hythum can be downloaded from https://docs.google.... ... UySWc/edit The module is in PDF and word format. There is spreadsheet with notes about XP that should be earned per chapter. I've also uploaded all of the raw maps. The maps are embedded in the module and aren't needed separately unless someone wants them. Perhaps to print a large scale copy more easily, or to share them using an online gaming program.

If you check it out, let me know what you think.

Thanks Enoa! I remember Hythum from NWN, though I didn't get as far into it as I had hoped ( I also have a little one)!

My gaming group has considered playing 4e off and on, but the lack of a compelling module was a big obstacle. I'll definitely take a look and let you know what I think.

Thanks!

Cool. Good luck if you did give it a try. I wrote it to stay in touch with the game and learn 4th edition. I can write properly balanced adventures for 1st and 2nd edition with my eyes closed, so if something is off it's the balance here and there. Please feel free to adjust as you see fit. Let me know what you think if you give it a try.

Take care,

Ernie

I've actually had an opportunity to play the first section of Hythum and my first 4th Edition D&D game. My 9 and 11 year old have been dabbling with old school basic D&D and want to try something more complicated. It was fun to run my story and try 4th edition.

I was dubious about the combat mechanics of 4th edition. It seem more like a video game than D&D, but I have to say I really enjoyed it. They were balanced, easy to understand (once I got going) and my kids and I all had a blast.
