Just finished running as DM. Excellent work. Hilariously fun and creepy. My players said it was some of the most entertaining adventures and encounters they have played in a long time. Player base is 4 players with 30 years each of RPing and 3 newbies with less than 2 years. I as DM have 35 yrs of exp. in RP. A few notes however. First: a clearer path for the players. While the open sandbox did lead to some great times, there was at times a sense of confusion amongst the PCs as to what/where/why they were doing next. I think just a tad bit more structure would smooth that out. Second: The ending. TBH it needs an out for the PCs. Simply killing them or having them wink out of existence is a clean way it is not a good way to end such an otherwise superb adventure. Please correct that one flaw. Thank you for your wonderful work and keep the stories coming.

A well written and thought out adventure that I'm excited to run. My only recommendation to DMs planning on running it is to make sure you read the entire thing, twice.

This adventure is quite nuanced and you want to maintain the emotional theme while running it.

This campaign is not for the faint of heart. Widows Peak is a memorable experience for both the DM and the players. Many experiences will be remembered and looked back on by everyone. For example, laughing at how a character was tragically thrown off a mountain by a seagull? Definetely something that stays in your mind. Widows Peak is a horrifying place, and the backstory and worldbuilding that was put into making Widow's Peak is incredible. You can tell thought was taken at every point in the story. There is death, dread and something lurking after every corner. Nowhere is safe, The players will realise this early on, and leave them talking to every character they can find that doesnt intend on disfiguring and transforming into a giant monstrosity. It just so happens that every character has been carefully thought out. It surprised me that every character in widows peak, everything was put there for a reason. Theres a peculiar man lurking behind a carnival tent staring at you. Theres a reason for that, theres a reason he's there. Theres a strange singing sound coming from the shores, theres a reason for that. The characters are carefully thought out and abolutely amazing. In conclusion, Widows Peak is amazing, memorable and horrifying. I have to give this a 5-star as there were absolutely no faults that I could find with it, and my players found no faults when i asked them either.

Pros:

  • The writing throughout the adventure is evocative and immersive.
  • Richly thematic random encounters that are more than just monster attacks.
  • World map and isometric dungeon maps look fantastic.
  • Several unique, interesting monster stat blocks, magic items, and new tables for more thematic trinkets and wild magic.
  • A selection of suitably epic ending climaxes to choose from.

Cons:

  • No separate grid-based battle maps.
  • More a series of locations and events than an overarching narrative.

THE VERDICT: WHILE IT USES ITS FAIR SHARE OF CLASSIC HORROR TROPES, “WIDOW’S PEAK” BREATHES FRESH SALTY SEA AIR INTO THE GENRE BY PROVIDING A MINI-WORLD OF HORROR TO EXPLORE.
