Just for the record, I was loving this project - I wonder if it'll get off the ground again at some point?

What about the dragon? Have you tested the Adult Young Dragon from your other thread?

What a coincidence. I haven't logged on in three months and this thread got bumped today.

I lost my job, moved and started a new one. So, I've been a bit busy. Truth be told, though, I lost my steam on this project.

Recently, I started working again on my Dungeon Fantasy adventure for SJG, and so I've not done anything with my dragons or this dungeon.

I'll get back to is someday.

I am sorry to hear that you passed dificults Stripe =(. If you want to finish this project, I can help you. Writting in english is not my strong part, but I can do maps, builds, etc.

Your offer is greatly appreciated, Mateus! I recall your DF regional map and liked it a lot.

Perhaps I'll take some time tomorrow to get a game plan down for finishing this thing. Maybe then I can seek aide.

Anyone else want to help?

Default Re: [DF] Shadowyrm -- One-Shot Beginner Adventure

After having not updated this since July, 2012, I've done some work and will post it in due time. When I first started this project, I had NO experience running (or playing) Dungeon Fantasy. Now that I have some, I can make a much better dungeon adventure.

The adventure is currently undergoing a complete overhaul.

I'd like to include some humans to the adversary list and have decided to add some evil cultists and what not from Dungeon Fantasy 15: Henchman. Maybe they're in a shadow dragon cult or something.

Also, the map needed some major revision. A large expansion of the north section and an expansion of the explorable area in general has been made. Also, it's been edited so that it fits the hex grid more closely, meaning there's less, "Is that an open hex or not?"

Here is the base of the new Shadowyrm map: http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/2047/shadowyrm5.png

There's no way a beginning-level group can face even a weakling dragon at the end of this dungeon in a combat encounter. Sine most players I've dealt with online will never retreat or even back down, something should be done to prevent the dragon from inflicting a total party kill.

Note that the dwarf knight and Goreblood both now been play tested with a group of four PC's. When flanked by an orc sergeant from DFA1 and equipped as posted above, Goreblood is an extremely lethal foe for beginning-level characters with beginning equipment. Together, they made short work of the dwarf knight posted above. If it weren't for some quick thinking on the wizard's part, he may have done the same to the Holy Warrior next.

I've realized that a good variety of monsters is needed so that all niches can have an equal opportunity to slay. Here's a quick list of monsters that are planned:

Code:
Mist Demons            Demon
Shadow Bats            Dire Animal
Skeletons              Undead
Skeleton Warriors      Undead
Ogre Skeleton          Undead
Dire Rats              Dire Animal
Death Weaver Spiders   Dire Animal
Goblins                Mundane
Orcs                   Mundane
Evil Cultists          Mundane
Dark Knights           Mundane
Goreblood              Mundane
Orc Necromancer        Mundane
Shadow Dragon          Mundane

Add: Construct, Elemental, Plant, and Slime.
Here are the mist demons:

Code:
Mist Demon

  Formed of cold, wet mist, these vaguely-humanoid demons take many 
shapes and forms, always shifting like smoke in the breeze. Their icy touch 
sends a deathly chill from beyond the grave through their victim's body, deep 
down into their very bones.

Evil Cultist

  Garbed in black robes, the fanatical cultists of Shadowyrm advance 
menacingly, slender, curved swords gleaming in the torchlight. Their faces

glimmering in their eyes.

Badass cultist in black armor using the Squire template from Henchmen:

Code:
Dark Knight

  Twin slits in the fell knight's lacquered barrel helm reveal only vacant 
shadow as he advances, longsword gripped in gauntleted first, shield raised. 
From beneath the folds of his floor-length black cape, the unholy symbol of 
his evil god witnesses to his abhorrent faith, stitched in red against the 
breast of his midnight-black surcoat.
