Prepped to run this, and it looks great. There are a few minor things I would ask for. A battle map for the combat outside the temple in Malar's Throat. Will add to review after finished running in campaign. Edit in reply to author. Thank you! SUPER fast response! I had found something close but was really trying to get something zoomed in that matches closer to the actual Port Nyanzaru map, have seen a few requests for a similiar map on Reddit and ToA discord. Thought I'd ask. To be honest here, I am running a group of lvl 4s so I wanted to bump up the difficulty on the battle and the skill challenge a bit, so its more of a fight through a undead horde and duck inside before being overwelmed.

Tyson, Thanks for the feedback. When playtesting the module, I used this freely available market battle map by the fantastic artist Neutral Party for this encounter. https://www.reddit.com/r/battlemaps/comments/a8c7m0/town_market/ Because the encounter outside the temple is very brief (for parties that succeed the skill challenge it may even be just one round), I chose not to commission a map for it as it would have raised the cost to make the product and the sale price. I was thinking for most folks, the main appeal would be the dungeon below the temple. Looking forward to hearing the rest of your review once you have a chance to run it!

Tomb of Annihilation is a great campaign in a wonderful setting, but the book can only cover so much content. Many areas of Chult can feel a bit empty because of this—ostensible landmarks may get just a paragraph of description in the hardcover, but it's characters and adventure hooks that make a place feel alive. Mr. Kahn breathes life into those Chultan locales that need it most.

These supplements are easy to implement on the go. When one of my players suddenly couldn't attend a session and I needed a sidequest to occupy the rest of the party, "Escape from Malar's Throat" made me look prepared. The author gave special care to emulate the descriptive style of Tomb of Annihilation, making the transition a seamless one. And just like in the module itself, it's very easy to utilize what you want from Mr. Kahn's adventures and leave the rest behind. The inspiration alone is well worth the price tag!

This series has made my life much easier, and I plan to incorporate as much of it into my campaign as possible. If you're a DM, do yourself a favor and take a look.
