I've dropped a full adventure on the Shadekeep site - Prince of the Power of the Air. (Thanks to Steve for the TFT site post!)

This was going to be the next adventure I submitted for publication, but after TFT Adventures 2 was previewed I decided there were enough thematic similarities to another adventure in there (winged women conducting raids from a flying fortress) that I wouldn't offer it for volume 3. But since it's finished I didn't want it to go to waste, so here it is.

If you're curious about the inspiration for this, the main one is Jules Verne's The Master of the World. There are also elements of Laputa from Gulliver's Travels and the flying castle from Richard Corben's Den comics. The Harpinax are of course inspired by harpies, though more humanoid here.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

"Staff of Mastery (20 ST)"

The style guide has this example of how to write this up:

Staff III (Mana: 12): 2 ebony wand, value $300 (1d)

Which helps distinguish between the mage's ST rating, any powerstones she may carry and her Mana attribute.

"Their talons give them +3 in HTH combat." Damage or adjDX? No bonus kicking to adjacent hex?

"They favor melee weapons, particularly polearms, as well as thrown weapons." Are these held in wings or talons?

Got a message from phiwum about possible ambiguity regarding the body structure of the Harpae. Says here in the description:

Their body shape is humanoid, with head and wings resembling various species of birds,

I figure most people understand that it means they are shaped like humans with wings, not humans with wings for arms. But hopefully this makes it doubly clear for those in doubt.

I felt the Gulliver influence while reading it. Good adventure, though. I like the map!
