Spire Of The Raven God $3.95 $2.96
Publisher: Black Death Publishing

This is the first product from this company as far as I can tell so I'll be constructive: hire an editor. Yes, a real one. And then decide which edition you're publishing for. If it's 3E then having ogres armed with Huge longspears or whatever is fine. If it's 3.5E, you might want to try again. Also, the space for a vrock is 10' not 10' x 5'. Should I go on? I will. Damage that differs depending on the size of the opponent went out in 2E. So which edition is this adventure for again? Oh, and "it's" is the contracted form of "it is". The possessive form of "it" is "its" without the apostrophe. I accept that 90% of messageboard users haven't grasped this but any sort of professional publication should be able to get this right.
The adventure itself is nothing spectacular. Several encounters with an attempt to use the tactical format in a manner similar to WotC. Really, this products needs to be looked at with a fresh set of eyes and then reissued. It's not good and certainly not a good first product.

Thank you for your response, Nigel. We do have an editor lined up for the next adventure. Minor mistakes and occasional grammatical errors do happen in many products that we review. Please contact us if there is anything else that you think of.
We had the adventure play-tested by two different groups in two different areas of the U.S.A. and they all enjoyed the adventure.They told us that the balance between story and battle was 'just right'. They also enjoyed the variety of encounter areas: forest, lower planes, dungeon and caverns.
Oh, one more thing as far as weapon damage goes. I went by the 3.5 statistics used at this link:

http://www.d20srd.org/srd/equipment/weapons.htm#meleeand-
RangedWeapons

Damage

The Damage columns give the damage dealt by the weapon on a successful hit. The column labeled "Dmg (S)" is for Small weapons. The column labeled "Dmg (M)" is for Medium weapons. If two damage ranges are given then the weapon is a double weapon. Use the second damage figure given for the double weapon’s extra attack. Table: Larger and Smaller Weapon Damage gives weapon damage values for weapons of various sizes.

Perhaps you confused the (double weapons type) stats with the old rule that had weapons doing different damages to S, M, and L creatures?

Thanks for the tip on the mistake of using It's on page six for a possessive contraction. We did miss one!
