I'm a DM looking at this for his AL group and just want to confirm that this is now AL legal, correct?

I recently ran this for my group and before I did I created a digital full-color map of the Rotted Heart dungeon at the end and printed it out. This made the final dungeon such a blast that I decided to make the map available for everyone you can check it out here:

@authors - this is an incredible adventure with great flavor and flair.

Tiny feedback for the Skull Lord at the end.
Your guidance says that he casts Haste on turn 1, then Fear on turn 2. Those are both Concentration spells. Casting Fear in round 2 would cause the Haste lethargy to set in.

Hello Authors, I had a (spoilery) question.

The Skull Lord's first level spell list has some non-first level spells listed. Was this intended and should the non first level spells be kept and redistributed or is this an error?

Hi Authors,

I'm trying to figure out what an Ennuisis looks like. Google didn't help at all. Can you provide a description, or a picture?

so there is final and v2

is final more final than v2? or is v2 the final final?

v2 is the one you want. The "final" version is a legacy file from before we fixed a few typos. I'll see if it can be removed.

Is it just me or am I missing something regarding the map for part 4? Is there supposed to be a labeled version?

After taking more time to read the material, it's not hard to discern what is supposed to be where in part 4.

When I ran this I put that info on the pages myself like you said its pretty easy to figure out once you read through it. I also included these labels on the DM versions of the full-color digital map pack I made for the ending dungeon.

For anyone wondering, you can get the player version of the map (without labels) at https://rpgcharacters.wordpress.com/2016/10/07/taroduns-tomb/ in case you are using a VTT or such.

How would you label this for AL shorthand on a logsheet? DDAL-GAC-RRQ?
I'll be running it in about a week! So happy for Shadowfell content!

Hey! DM looking into this product. I want my players to go and find the Raven Queen, asking for information on how to restore the Ordning for SKT. Do the adventurers in this product come into contact with the goddess?

Sort of, but not in a manner in which they might be expecting. She's mysterious like that.

You could adjust the last meeting with her mysteriousness to allow for such a trade of information though, if it suited your home campaign.

I created a map pack that has a full-color map of the dungeons, one of the digital assets in the package is a JPG version sized for Fantasy Grounds.

Who does the art for this series of adventures? Is it one of the listed authors?

Much of the art comes from Wizards of the Coast. For this product, the artists can be found in the sidebar up and right. One of the authors (Travis Woodall) did some of the maps in this product, and I believe in some of the other Guild Adept products Will Doyle (who is a GA author) may have done some of the art as well.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
