    FVS4 - Penchant for Adventure - 1
    by Skaught B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/15/2015 09:52:40

    I ran myself through this adventure, trusting that with my several epochs' worth of experience as a DM, I would be able to enforce some degree of reasonable decision making and not just give myself everything. Even with a fair degree of self-inflicted "You can't do that!", I had to be a bit lenient with multiple attempts and hitting the reset button.

    Some of these encounters are REALLY hard for a single level-1 character!

    Due to the fifth edition focus on bounded accuracy and economy of action, any 1-on-1 fights against inferior opponents are likely to turn out in the player's favor, with some allowance for bad luck. However, the 3-against-1 fights (there are two of them) can QUICKLY turn from threatening to deadly. The one encounter with 3 kobolds – stinkin' little kobolds! – took me seven attempts to pass, with a monk. (Full disclosure: since the stat blocks in this module are [intentionally?] incomplete, I didn't realize kobolds suffer from sunlight sensitivity until attempt #6!! Have all your core rulebooks handy, adventurers!)

    The final encounter is potentially very difficult to emerge from victorious, but it's definitely possible. I think it also bears mentioning (since the module itself doesn't), losing the fight is not necessarily fatal! Again: consult your core rulebooks, players! :)

    Overall, I am VERY happy to have discovered this module. I think it could use a little more polish and/or expansion, but considering it's FREE, it's definitely worth the price of admission. I'm eager to check out the rest of the Filbar 5th edition titles, especially the FVS line.

    At first it seems strange that half the write up is about a village you just spend a couple of minutes passing by. OK, it still seems strange. But once past the irrelevant village the adventure starts, and does well.

    Great plug & play town that I've dropped into a larger campaign for use with my kids - a great time saver if you have a regular day job. The module can also be used as seed for a somewhat larger town and each individual building can be dropped into existing towns already on the map.

    FQ0 - Codex of Gamber Dauch
    by Mark W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/26/2015 13:29:31

    Short, excellent intro to Adventures in Filbar (Filbar-Bast). This allows the DM to get all she needs to know to decide whether she wants to run her PCs through this campaign. Designed for beginning players and DMs, guided adventures with options for extra side adventures along the way. Amazing photos of the Codex that could be printed out as handouts to add realism for the PCs.

    It needs work to use in my current campaign but I love the feel of the product. Very old school. It seems you guys have fixed the downloading problem I have had in the past with some of your items. Keep it up

    FS4 - Xavier's Wand
    by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 04/18/2014 13:53:43

    Getting started in your chosen career can often be quite hard - and adventuring is no different! Designed for but a single character and a DM, this adventure supposes that the character has just started out as an adventurer and so far has gained nothing more than sore feet tramping the countryside in search of excitement.

    Rather than a full adventure, this work consists of six encounters in and around a tiny village. Tailored for a single first-level character, there's a good mix of combat and interaction to be had. The character will quickly become the local 'hero' and a few tasks will come his way in and around the area, including a mill, a hilltop and even a swamp to explore. By the time the character has got through that little lot, he ought to know if the adventuring life is for him. That is, if he survives, although the challenges have been designed with an eye to a solitary first-level character it has to be remembered that such individuals are pretty fragile.

    There's a player and DM map of the area, some delightful pictures of cottages, a floorplan for the mill and a large picture of a frog to round it off. About all that's missing is a map of the village itself, but it is supposed to be no more than a cluster of cottages with farms further out.

    A good start to anyone's adventuring career. Come on, fame and fortune await!

    FT - Silvantri
    by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 03/30/2014 11:28:39

    An elf village ought to feel a bit different from a human one, and Silvantri manages that well. Built deep in a forest with much far overhead linked by aerial walkways, some elves rarely come to ground at all. Others use elevators to get foodstuffs to the heights (and at least one drunk dwarf, the village blacksmith, back home after an evening's drinking). Originally built thus to keep elves safe from other humanoids using the forest, they have kept it that way because they like it and are used to it.

    The population is almost completely elven, with a few others mostly accepted (one or two elves would rather they were not there) into the community, mostly retired adventurers from a party including a resident of the village who returned home. Magic abounds, and there's a couple of good inns. Several of the elves trade in textiles and leatherwork, there's excellent wine made and one inn's specialty is rhubarb pie! There's a fine library, and some rather good bakers... heck, I think I'll move there.

    The product rounds off with a map, menus for both inns and several images of this wonderful setting. It would be a nice place to come across in your travels, but mind your manners. Elves won't stand any nonsense.

    FC2 - Slaughter at Sengais
    by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/25/2014 11:51:50

    This adventure is suitable for a group of low-level adventurers who have just completed two or three adventures and are beginning to talk about taking a rest... only they won't be getting it straight away, as the peaceful village they are heading for is under attack even as they arrive!

    The adventure is straightforward: the party must beat off the attack, and if possible find out why it happened and where the attackers came from. To that end, the village is described, with plenty of incidents for the characters to get involved in, and assorted villagers meeting with greater or lesser success at defending themselves - although most if not all will be grateful for some help. However they have no idea why they were attacked. The clues are there, however, to lead the party onwards to defeat the aggressors in their lair... if they find them! It may take a measure of DM prodding to make sure that they find sufficient information.

    As usual from this publisher, there are good simple descriptions of everything to be found, with associated stat blocks as necessary, with clear simple maps and a few photographs to set the scene. It adds a nice forest village to the campaign world (provided it survives relatively unscathed), and leaves the party feeling that they can be useful members of society wherever they go - as there will always be those willing to threaten peaceful folk.

    Overall, a simple and straightforward adventure that can fit in readily with whatever else is going on.

    F14 - Bog of Jelaneus
    by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/18/2014 10:24:38

    This is not so much an adventure as a very dangerous area to explore, suitable for quite high level characters (maybe about 8th-10th level) who may wish to investigate it. The Bog of Jelaneus, you see, is the remnants of an ancient and powerful empire which came to grief over 200 years ago, Jelaneus himself being one of the last emperors. Some say he brought down the wrath of the gods themselves, others say that he was performing some dark ritual that went very wrong... whatever the truth, this is all that remains of the Adurite Empire - and of course, as any brave adventurer knows, many wonders and riches might be found in such a place.

    Characters travelling around the bog will come across certain locations, for which descriptions and other resources (including some of the wonderful photo-illustrations this publisher is known for!) are provided for the DM. Most will require further development before play, although there is an overview of what is to be found there and which monsters might take exception to the party's intrusion. There is also a large hex map for the party to plot their progress as they explore, and two maps (DM's and players') for a ruined city.

    So for a party that fancies coming out of the dungeon and having a good squelch around a swamp in their ongoing search for fame and fortune, this should prove interesting - and potentially deadly. I don't think there's anything friendly there!

    FT - Lord Morningstar's Keep

    Nice description of a keep that could be used as a base of operations for an adventuring party. Worked out nicely with NPCs and description of building.

    FP2 – Under Castle Modum
    by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/10/2014 11:49:16

    A ruined castle to explore, long-derelict remains of an ancient war... where mysterious lights and legends of buried wonders have brought several bands to explore including your part... a perfect setting for some low level (1st-3rd) adventuring fun.

    Apart from a general introduction there are no specific hooks to get your party in there, still a ruin with rumours of treasure should do the trick for any red-blooded adventurers. There's a clear map and good room descriptions with all the necessary details provided to run the adventure... including the other explorers, who are to be found at various points and tend not to be interested in collaboration!

    In this company's usual style, there are a couple of photographs to illustrate the setting, useful for showing your players what their characters see (although my players are familiar with the castle gatehouse depicted: it's a location I know well and have been using in dungeons for some 30 years!).

    This is an enjoyable low-level adventure that would feature nicely early in an adventuring party's career.
