This product is 18 pages long. It starts with a cover and credits. (2 pages)
Adventure (9 pages)
This is for 1st level characters. It starts off with a background for the adventure. At one point in the past the village had a series of murders, the murderer was eventually caught and hanged. As the killer was about to die he swore vengeance against those who had captured him. Now years later it seems he might get his chance.
The PC's all receive a letter to ask them to come to the village of Shadowfield. This is followed by a brief overview of the village, including a map.
A carriage is sent to pick up all the PC's so eventually if they are not together they spend some time in the carriage going to the village. Once they arrive at their destination they find the house has smoke pouring out of the windows. The rest of the short adventure is about investigating the farm and the locations around it.
Monsters and NPC's (6 pages)
This part has full stat blocks for all the monsters and NPC's in the adventure.
It ends with a OGL. (1 pages)
Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and ok. Editing and layout was pretty good. It is a fairly short adventure, with a very gothic/Halloween feel to it. I really only have on compliant about the adventure. The main villain is a new monster which is pretty cool and neat. Now the problem is there is a chance the PC's will fight and kill the main villain early in the adventure, the adventure suggest that he come back and be at the end to fight again. Which is all well and good from a gothic horror point of view. My problem is since the monster was new they could have made it so it could only be killed a certain way. It would have made more sense and it could have easily been added to the creature with out changing anything else in the adventure. Other than that it is a short, well done mini adventure. I would have liked to have seen more focus put on RPing with the NPC's in the village before heading out to the farm though. So what's my rating? This is a solid little adventure that with just a bit more effort and tweaking put into it, could have been very good. As it stands I am giving it a 3.5 star review. Nice but to make it really shine takes a little GM effort.
Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
