The Full Size preview link is broken. Also one quick question: How easy would it be to set this in a city that isn't Waterdeep?

Thanks, I'll try and fix this tonight.

Really, really easy to fit it in another city though it helps to be a decent size with distinct regions (wealthy, slums, merchant etc).

Unable to review for some reason, so I'll do it here.

A well presented adventure focusing on RP. Lots of opportunities to expand and introduce npcs/ places to suit an ongoing campaign. Inexperienced DMs may need a little help to flesh things out, but for me the concise discriptions and overview are really handy for preparing a short notice.
An interesting plot, included stats and battle map means everything is ready to roll in one package.
I would put the adventure length around 3hrs but will see when I run it next week (these things are never an exact science). With a PWYW price tag this is a no brainer. Overall a very nice product.

This looks like a lot of fun, but definitely needs another pass for grammar, punctuation etc. On page 3 alone I found the following:

" they are presented here, adding
to world." article omitted?

"The adventurer’s will be approached..." possessive, should be plural. This occurs throughout the document.

"...if he is not as seems then drive
him from time to save his daughter..." words seemingly omitted.

I paid the suggested price for this. I'd like to run it soon, but these errors make it hard for me to get through it.

Hi Robert, thanks for the feedback. Grammar is absolutely not one of my greatest skills and sadly not having an "editor" means more of this has apparently crept through than I would have hoped.

I'll be having another pass (or two or three if required) through the document and updating as I find these issues.

I hope it will not hinder your enjoyment too much in the meantime.

There's a typo in the adventure description: "...a story of deceipt" should be "...a story of deceit".

Also in Dreznaz's monologue he refers to "Zariel himself", however Zariel is female so should be "herself".

Wow - I'm not sure how that got through. Thank you so much for pointing this out.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
