What are mini-adventures? Mini-adventures are supplemental adventures that typically feature 10 encounters that add to the overall story arc of the campaign while providing additional magic items and experience for the characters.
What are Iconic Characters? In each campaign I feature up to 6 iconic NPC characters throughout the story. These iconics can be used by players as per-generated characters or NPCs and are provided in both 1E AD&D stats as well as 5E D&D stats.
What are new monsters? In each of my adventures I feature a unique monster that appears in the campaign or world. However, there are sometimes multiple new monsters, and these stat blocks will flesh out the other new monsters the players encounter.
What do I get with the setting information? For this campaign, I've prepared a document called Ports of the Nameless Realms as the adventures take place on an ocean journey. This supplement includes maps of the regions the characters will explore as well as information on the ports they could visit along the way.
What is a Folio adventure? Folio adventures are typically 30 page modules that include a gazetteer book and an adventure book, 3D maps, 2D hex maps, with everything you'll need to start adventuring.
