PREVIEW: The Dark Heart of Hulburg

The Dark Heart of Hulburg
by Ben Sanderfer

This is the module I've been working on for over a year, mostly in my free time.  It's a hack-n-slash type module, very similar to Pool of Radiance in style, but with more story and far more freedom.

Story Overview:
The party is hired by Sasha of Phlan to travel to the ruined city of Hulburg and attempt to liberate it from the monsters dwelling there.  In much the same way that heroes freed Phlan a decade before, Sasha hopes a stalwart band of adventurers can help return Hulburg to its former glory.  Unfortunately, something sinister and ancient has awakened in the heart of Hulburg...


Here are some screenshots of the work in progress:

Looking forward to playing this!  It looks like a nice, low-level dungeon romp in the Gold Box style.

Is this the design you were requesting playtesters for?

Yes, this is the design that I asked about, and that I've already got some feedback on.

I've put it aside for the time being to do some other things with UA.   I haven't touched it in a while.

The whole reason I haven't released any major modules in 7 years is lack of time.  I may have to focus more on doing mini-mods, like the one I completed a few months ago.  They don't require as much time to complete as epic modules.

Every time I try to start something major, I just don't have the steam to finish it anymore.  Not because I don't want to, but because other things get in the way.

I have a playtest version, if you want to take a look at it.  There's probably four or five areas to explore and the beginnings of a story...but not much else.

Yes, you could send it to me.

How big was it supposed to be when it's done?

It was supposed to be "Epic" in size (and that usually means it will take all the dungeons UA has to offer).

Send me a personal message with your e-mail address.
