Yeah its headers are still tied to the Horror at the Pumpkin Festival pages (actually the even/odd pages are separate for whatever reason). I'll try to fix it for next release.

Re-posted R15; many HP hitboxes were messed up, and the map in the last adventure needed to be enlarged to fit the page.

I finally got through it, and here are the corrections. Are there any additions that you are looking at to add to this set of adventures?

Edits for Adventure Anthology 2

Dungeon of Kyros
Page 4 Dungeon Key
Please put a thin line between the sections to avoid having a person finish the Carnivorous Apes in the Random Encounters and then start the Dungeon Key only to go back to the Random Encounters when they finish the first column.

Page 6 - 12. Prison Cell
The stats for the Wight are in parenthesis, none of the other monster stats, before page 6, are in parenthesis.

Page 7 – 15. Prison Cell
The stats for the Ogre Zombie are in parenthesis, none of the other monster stats, before page 6, are in parenthesis.

Page 7 – 18. Prison Cell

The stats for the Gray Ooze are in parenthesis, none of the other monster stats, before page 6, are in parenthesis.

Page 8 – 26. Bugbears Paragraph three
Currently:

Should be:
The door in the back of the room leads to a dead end.

A Matter of Justice

The Tomb of Threy
Currently set at
An adventure for x to x characters of levels x to x.
Looking at the level of the NPCs and monsters that are encountered I would suggest this:
An adventure for 3 to 5 characters of levels 1 to 2.

Page 22 – 6. Crypt - 3rd paragraph
Currently:

room will glow.

Beneath the Temple of the Moon


Page 24 – 3 Temple Acolytes
Mentions 3 acolytes only stat boxes for two acolytes

Page 25 – 6a, 6b, 6c. Meditation Cells
Should the description be in present tense and then give a clue as to the rooms not being used?
Currently:
Those small rooms were used to pray to Cluvia, but aren't used anymore. Each room only contains a reed prayer mat.

Suggestion:
Three small rooms used to pray to Cluvia. Each room only contains a reed prayer mat. There appears to be a layer of dust on the floors and mats.

Page 27 – 15. Statue Room – Description box
Currently:
In this cave, there is a few blocks of stone of various size used for carving sculptures.

Should be:
In this cave, there are several blocks of stone of various size used for carving sculptures.

Page 27 – 18. Secret Meeting Room paragraph 1
Currently:
If Philibert and any of his acolytes or servants that still haven't been encountered (or who have fled from the party) will be found here.

Tomb of the Mummy Priest

Page 32 – 2. Main Hall – Paragraph 2
Mentions that 8 bandits would return from patrol. There are only blocks for 7 Bandits.

Temple of Bones

Page 38 – Between the description of Brother Malmury and Denizens of the Dungeon put a thin line to break the sections so a reader doesn’t go from the description to reading about the dungeon and when getting to the bottom of the page going back to the description of Brother Malmury and then back again to the dungeon.

Pg 39 – 6 and 7 Preparation Room
The rooms don’t mention about the 10 Skeleton Warriors from Rooms 4 and 5 if they haven’t been cleared already. I think they would show up in the second round after the party enters either room.
Should add the following to Room 6 and 7 descriptions as first sentence:
2 rounds after this room is entered the 10 Skeleton Warriors from Room 4 (or 5) will arrive if they haven’t been found already.

Towns people will say the group has awakened a curse that was cast over the lake. The people tell how 22 years earlier a youth from Black Peak was shunned by the town elders for his grotesque disfigurement. The disfigured person later drowned in the lake. The youth’s mother, a known witch, put a blood curse on the lake so that anyone from Bleak Peak that swam in the lake would die.

Also if the above paragraph is used several paragraphs could be combined. Put the above at the end of paragraph two and the sentence of paragraph 5 after the above. Paragraph 4 could be left out since it is incorporated in the above.

Wow, thanks Al! I'll work through these for the next release, hopefully will have up in a day or 2.

As far as further additions, as this is still in the beginning stages, submissions are still open. I'm slowly working on my Halls of Finley Manor to be included at some point. Fastjack2x's Tomb of Thorin Zuse will also likely be included with further feedback and refinement. nam37's Search for the Cure is another I'm keeping an eye on. I'd like to include one of John Dutton's adventures, maybe Drakestein Island.

R16 posted.
Dungeon of Kyros
Page 4 Dungeon Key
Please put a thin line between the sections to avoid having a person finish the Carnivorous Apes in the Random Encounters and then start the Dungeon Key only to go back to the Random Encounters when they finish the first column.
Solo will need to chime in, but I don't think we normally do that, just having the subheader that implies a new section.
Page 6 - 12. Prison Cell
The stats for the Wight are in parenthesis, none of the other monster stats, before page 6, are in parenthesis.
I've probably been guilty of this as well. I need to add a note about this, HP checkboxes, etc. to the Style Guide. Corrected in AA2 as well as added the "1" as we always note how many monsters there are.
The Tomb of Threy
Currently set at
An adventure for x to x characters of levels x to x.
Looking at the level of the NPCs and monsters that are encountered I would suggest this:
An adventure for 3 to 5 characters of levels 1 to 2.
A Matter of Justice also needs this info. Levels I would say 5 to 7, # players 3-5 or 4-6?
Page 25 – 6a, 6b, 6c. Meditation Cells
Should the description be in present tense and then give a clue as to the rooms not being used?
Currently:
Those small rooms were used to pray to Cluvia, but aren't used anymore. Each room only contains a reed prayer mat.
I'd leave this up to GM fiat, being able to describe the dust, musty smell, etc.
Pg 28 – 19. Lair of the Succubus
Spell list for Succubus is bolded, the spell lists in other modules is not bolded.
Currently: Spells: Charm Person, Suggestion, Darkness, Dimension Door, ESP and Clairaudience (as the potion), at will, as a 12th level caster.
Should be: Spells: Charm Person, Suggestion, Darkness, Dimension Door, ESP and Clairaudience (as the potion), at will, as a 12th level caster.
Per the Style Guide spell names should always be lower-case and bold.
Pg 39 – 6 and 7 Preparation Room
The rooms don’t mention about the 10 Skeleton Warriors from Rooms 4 and 5 if they haven’t been cleared already. I think they would show up in the second round after the party enters either room.
Should add the following to Room 6 and 7 descriptions as first sentence:
2 rounds after this room is entered the 10 Skeleton Warriors from Room 4 (or 5) will arrive if they haven’t been found already.
May not have been mentioned as they already had the 2 Bone Horrors. But, this whole section may need to be re-written. It says for Room 8 that the 2 Bone Horrors will be found here if not otherwise encountered, but looking at the map the group would have to go through either 6 and/or 7. Maybe the Bone Horrors should just stay in Room 8, and then the Skeleton Warriors can roam up to 6 & 7?
Pg 59 – Midnight on Blood Lake
Is there a map for the mines this adventure?
If Noah doesn't provide one we may need to try to come up with one.
Page 61 –
Is there a map for the corn maze and pumpkin cave for this adventure?
Same here: If Noah doesn't provide one we may need to try to come up with one.

For all the grammar/clarification stuff in my 2 adventures I give you guys the right to change stuff a bit. English is a second language for me, so I need a little help sometimes.

Chii,

I think all three of John Dutton's adventures should be close enough to include in AA2, and your Castle Devlyn adventure should now be eligible too, and Fastjack2x's Tomb of Thorin Zuse should now be ready too. If my counts are close this will almost double the size of AA2. Next Finley Manor...
