  • Marathon of Heroes (5e) (Patreon Request) This adventure clocks in at 36 pages of content, sans front cover, editorial, etc. My review of the module is based on the softcover; I don’t own the pdf and thus can’t comment on its virtues or lack thereof.   This review was requested by one of my patreon supporters, who sent me the print version, to be undertaken at my convenience.   This is an adventure for 4-6 5th level characters, and it makes use of the concepts presented in the Lands of Lunacy Campaign Guide.

The map has no scale noted.   As always when I review mini-modules, it should be noted that I rate them for what they are – brief sidetreks. I don’t expect epic stories from them.   All righty, in order to discuss the adventure, I need to go into SPOILERS. Potential players […]
