PREVIEW: Neverwhere
« on: May 18, 2016, 12:42:17 PM »
I finally finished my FRUA module after working on it for about 15 years.  On and off, more off than on.

I've played through it multiple times, and can find no bugs, but I'd like a few people to try it out before it's released.

I don't see a lot of calls for Beta Testers on these boards, but if anybody is interested please let me know.


Module Info:
Description: Told about a town not on any of the maps, the party finds themselves trapped in a city by a spell put upon the south gate. A city that speaks in a strange language and is home to unusual people.

The game consists of a city, graveyard, sewers, and a 4 level deep dungeon.
Played out across 18 dungeons and no overland maps.
Average Playtime: 7-10 hours

Here are some screenshots if you're interested:

I will send you a personal message with my email address.  I'm not sure which one is tied to the account here (though I will be checking it); because I didn't receive a message from you.

Congratulations on getting to this point of completion. Would you consider this adventure Ravenloft inspired? It seems like it might have themes of horror and survival.

Thanks a lot guys, I hope you get a chance to play it when it comes out.

I can't say the game is inspired by Ravenloft.  I hate to admit I haven't played it yet, and only read parts of the module.

But it's definitely an Undead themed mod.  Though I drew on some different lore to create this.

I just don't know if the theme makes it a Horror module or not.  I kind of labeled it Fantasy because it's AD&D.

Oh yeah, it's not survival.  It's six characters storming in and kicking some arse.  But the undead can be ruff at times.

I've been testing it (still got some testing to do), and so far I'd say it's a really good module.  Combats are challenging without being unfair (have had two party wipe outs so far, but that just means that I need to try harder). 

I think the community as a whole will enjoy it.

Finished the module and sent off my final suggestions.  Really good hack-and-slash module that takes me back to my dungeon-delving days of AD&D.  Once it's released, it'll be worth a spin by FRUA players.

Neverwhere is now available at the FRUA Archive.

It can be tricky in some parts.  If you have any questions just ask.

I have installed it and it looks fantastic, only thing that was bad is that today was very hot and module has wintery atmosphere :icon_sunny:, but good thing is that there were already made characters to be played :). I have played a bit today but will leave the rest for tomorrow.
