So what's the next step?

Playtesting?

Currently I'm writing on Marskland, and that will be a much sorter and conventional written adventure.

Playtesting happens whenever it happens... we have no particular rule for that.

Are we adding this to AA3 or are you putting together your own multimodule? At 23 actual pages, it's too short to print just yet, but one or two more similar-length adventures could make it a full publication of its own.

A couple of notes:

-- We just can't have a town called Blackmoor. No way that's going to fly, legally speaking.

-- I'd like to see the adventure include notes for GMs that don't want to use the Assassin or Gnome supplements. We have gnomes as a monster, so given that we don't need gnome PCs, we can just go that way. As for the assassins, we should be able to substitute standard thief rules for them without harming the adventure significantly. Something like we did with the barbarian adventure in CS1.

Hi Chris!

I would really like a chance for Assassin's Conundrum to appear in AA3.
AC is my first adventure and I don't know if I can produce 50-60 pages.

Since Blackmoor is a place I south of UK I didn't think that would be a problem. But of course I will change the name.
Regarding gnomes there is only one Npc so that is not a problem to omit.
The PC don't have to choose the class Assassin to play AC, but they will gain some of the skills. But I guess you can substitute these by some thief skills.

Thanks for your input! :D

jobend: I'll let you work on r6, including the quoted changes to get this ready for AA3.
I've moved r5 to the first post, and edited the thread's title to include the AA3 tag.

Thanks Al 8-) Just so we won't have 2 uploads so soon together, when you're done instead of updating the first post's attachments, can you just put into the Projects folder and then reply in this thread for that?
That way I can make an editing pass myself, and then I'll upload to first post. Thanks!
