I'd like to remind everyone (or inform you if you didn't see my prior posts) that I'm part of another Bundle of Holding! This one is composed of 15 of our Advanced Adventures that you can pick up for about $1 each. If you've any interest in some real old-school 1e rules adventuring, this is the time to grab and go. Any PC that survives all 15 of the modules will move from newbie to name level. 'Course, it's the surviving that the hard (and fun!) part, eh?

10% of payments (after merchant fees) will be sent along to support RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) - a charity that's well worth supporting.

Also, since I'm the only publisher involved in this Bundle of Holding, I'd truly appreciate any shares you could give me - its harder getting the word out when you're all alone.

If you'd like more info on some individual modules, go to my blog http://josephbrowning.blogspot.com/ and I've written up several posts about 'em.

(Redtooth Ridge is one of the modules in the current Advanced Adventures Bundle of Holding - only $16 for 15 modules, so quite the bargain - link at end of post). Redtooth Ridge is an exploration of an old abandoned mansion atop the titular ridge. I think it’s a great introductory module that heavily focuses on exploration and throws in enough combat to maintain the tension of what isn’t that dissimilar to a “cabin in the woods” horror movie setup.

Redtooth Ridge is the only Advanced Adventure that comes directly from my campaign. Most of the time, the games I run are too customized to be turned into a suitable-for-all module, but this one managed to make the cut because I was starting out with a brand-new group, and 1st-level modules tend to be the easiest to translate from my table to the tables of all gamers.

That said, 1st-level modules also tend to be quite hard to write for public consumption as they’re generally very similar and you don’t want your modules looking like something that’s come before. Finding new ideas is also more difficult at low levels because of the power constraints. Redtooth Ridge was powered-down from my table into the final product because my players were all very experienced. For instance, the vrock (yes, vrock!) that appeared at my table doesn’t show up in the finished module. But the vrock did provide for one extremely memorable scene: My wife, playing a trusty dwarven fighter, who upon seeing what appeared to her as giant-chicken-footprints in the dust on the floor, decided that clucking like a chicken was the appropriate way to see what critter lay behind the prints. Needless to say, that infuriated the vrock and it immediately came to investigate. A few rounds later the cleric put it down and managed to save the rest of the unconscious party. Fun time!

Redtooth Ridge is illustrated by the wonderful John and Daisy Bingham. These two show the encounter with the giant rats in the library tower and the party stumbling upon the secret treasure area guarded by a stone guardian.
