But just imagine how easy the adventure would be for the players if the dungeon isn't stocked or anything. ;)
Hmmm, I may have to do that some time, just give a description of the rooms and have nothing in the place. Any thing that moves is just from the wind of a storm. Have several 'paranormal' knocks and bangs, but it turns out to be raccoons or opossums hiding in the building and knocking into things. Even mice in the walls. Have another crash and its just the roof caving in from a branch, falling due to the storm outside. No shadows, no skeletons, no ghosts just their own paranoia setting in. :D I know I'm going to do for Halloween now. :lol: (manically)
And then ten beholders in the last room.

That'll learn 'em!
What is this "beholder" of which you speak? Is that like an orb of eyes? ;-)

Skimmed over the first version. Looks pretty fun. I like the combination of quest/problem solving and clearing out the dungeon.

Thanks, I just hope that a couple people find some value in it and maybe run it one Saturday night while laughing, eating pizza, and staying up far too late.

Ruzzzr,

I had to make some changes to get this into more of a BFRPG Style. Here is a list of what I did, there are other misspellings, but I realize they are in the speech patterns of the NPC's in the adventure so I left those alone.

Switched to two column format. The original SPI four column format (Yes, I played SPI DragonQuest version 1 back in the 1980s), is not what BFRPG uses.

All the room names were set to all caps. This again is a BFRPG Standard.

Changed Monster descriptions to use MonsterBlock Style and changed Hit Blocks to use the HPCheckBoxes and HPChecksEnd Styles. These are BFRPG Standards. Added non-breaking spaces where needed in the description blocks, another BFPRG Style.

Made sure that die were marked as 1d2, 1d3, 1d4, 1d6, 1d8, 1d10.

Page 1 – The Hook – Paragraph 1 and The Arrival Boxed text -
Changed ‘travelling’ to ‘traveling’.

Page 3 – Entry Chamber – Paragraph 2
Changed ‘discernable’ to ‘discernible’.

Page 4 – Spider Lair – Paragraph 1
Changed ‘undigestible’ to ‘indigestible‘.

Page 7 – Trapped Key Room – Paragraph 1
Changed 10x10 to 10’x10’.

Attached is R2 of your adventure. Good luck in the contest.

I actually didn't know you could insert a 2 column section inside a 2 column section. Was that intentional, or an accident of copy-and-pasting?

I haven't read it. I never read contest entries before the contest deadline. But I had to look...
