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!
