Review: Reavers of Harkenwold

The first begins with a thorough overview of the plot of the adventure in both a super-brief format here are the three or four major points of the plot as well as a longer format for book 1 that goes over the flow of that section. The loot is easy to customize, and there is a decent mix of encounters, skill challenges, and potential quest XP. It is presented in two separate magazine-type books.

The players need to gather allies, fight in a large military battle, then infiltrate a keep. I removed the traps and one of the monsters from that battle and it was STILL too hard the players retreated and came back the next day with an elf ally. Book 2 starts with the plot overview for that book, and then the encounters. It is a great module. I pretty much just spent my time finding comparable monsters to substitute for the 4E ones.

How are you going to start out?
