Deconstruction of Khyber's Harvest

Post by Beoric » Sun Apr 08, 2018 3:50 am

Things have been pretty quiet around here since the move to the new server, so I'm looking for any excuse to get people talking again. I wrote a review/deconstruction of Keith's module, Khyber's Harvest. Fortunately, it has fewer problems than Whispers of the Vampire's Blade, so hopefully I won't incur anyone's wrath. Its kind of a 4e analysis, but like I said, no-one's talking around here, hopefully this will start something.

If you converted this up or down one edition, I'd definitely be interested. That name clearly marks this as the kind of adventure I'd love.

I wasn't planning to convert it to anything, just analyzing it as an adventure. There are only 7 combat encounters, so i don't imagine converting that would be a chore if you were so inclined. The magic items might be another matter, though.

There was a possibility of rolling back the forum, during the Open Test, and I think that made a few people hesitant to gamble on posts that could be lost.

It's great that this is a free adventure, as it means that anyone can grab the adventure, read your deconstruction and join in the discussion.

Thanks for posting that, Beoric. I've added your link to the Book-House article for Khyber's Harvest.

(I also found your earlier Deconstruction of... article and added it to the Whispers of the Vampire's Blade article. :) )

Feel free to start your own "Converting Khyber's Harvest to 3rd Edition" or "Converting Khyber's Harvest to 5th Edition" topic, Willpell.

From what Beoric says, you could work through and convert one encounter at a time. :)

I placed this adventure in Nentir Vale and ran it with 13th Age for my kids. Its creepiness was a big positive to them. That was probably around five years ago, and they still talk about it. That's not to say it was a masterpiece, but due to my kids' reactions, it has a fond place in my heart.
