Is there any guidance on what to trim to make this 6 hrs module fit into a 4 hrs time slot? The cover says it is 4-6 hrs but does not have any guidance on what could be trimmed but also keep the overall story consistent with it's following adventures. I'm running this one at a convention and may not have the same players for the subsequent parts to keep things consistent.

I also wanted to inquire on part 3. What if after everything the adventuring party has experienced, they decide they don't want to do what the NPC "Ashar" is requesting of them. The notes just say she will be disappointed, but there is no contingency to a no answer.

Thank you for taking time to provide some feedback. If you did want to trim down this module, I would suggest removing it. Modifying the chase conditions or encounters in Part One and shorten/remove encounters in the camp rings in Part Two.

Interesting question-thank you for it. These adventures were written as a trilogy ran at a convention so they were designed to be played in succession to one another. What would you do if you had a player character that answered No to Ashar's request? It is written that she implores the party come with her to Derlusk, but she doesn't need them to carry out what she is already going to do. How you interpret that as a DM will be your call. I would encourage you to work with your players to come up with an alternate resolution then. Thank you for presenting the adventure.

Ran MBK01-01 Autumn Burns Red today at Roll Initiative. The players had a blast, even though they couldn't catch the hint to run from the festival and almost got TPK'd, they made it through the camp, got the documents, and returned to the captain with minimum casualties. It was a lot of fun!

Thank you for your feedback. When I designed the opening, I really had to think about how I could drive it home that the party should run--Other than having the villagers run, the villagers beg them to run and help them, the only other means was to let the enemy keep coming. The writing team asked me to design a "shock and awe" opener. I'm glad you found enjoyment in the adventure.. the rest of the series is a hoot!

Is it possible for authors to please let us know if you have detailed custom colored maps or not. With COVID and streaming moving a lot of the player base to VTT gaming instead of in person knowing this helps (me) to decide whether to buy a product. Overall module reads well and I plan on using it.

Plans are set to include a set of VTT assets for the module. They will be collected, packaged, and included as an update soon.

Thank you for checking in with us.

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.
