Get Your Free Adventure!

Our first event saw several tables of new and experienced GMs playing the same fantasy-RPG adventure together. Afterwards, we talked about what happened, how, and why—comparing the lessons we learned along the way through actual play, now that we had the adventure in common.

This adventure, written and designed by Will Hindmarch, is still free to download (PDF at Dropbox) for your own play and experimentation.

Have at it!
