L1 THE SECRET OF BONE HILL PDF

What makes this module different from preceding modules is that this is more of a mini-setting than an adventure. While the Lendore Isles are based in Greyhawk, Lakofka originally set the entire L-series in his home campaign. Bone Hill is a giant mess of a sandbox. Based around the fishing port town of Restenford, it goes into great detail about the town, as well gives rumors and a few scenarios.

What makes this module different from preceding modules is that this is more of a mini-setting than an adventure. While the Lendore Isles are based in Greyhawk, Lakofka originally set the entire L-series in his home campaign. Bone Hill is a giant mess of a sandbox. Based around the fishing port town of Restenford, it goes into great detail about the town, as well gives rumors and a few scenarios.

However, there is no payoff, no Big Bad Evil Guy, no overall plot. This was a first for TSR, in that previous modules always had a solid plot and ran linear. L1: The Secret of Bone Hill does no such thing, leaving the information for the Dungeon Master to fill in all the plot and order of encounters. The Secret of Bonehill module, copy signed by artist Bill Willingham Positive Notes on Bone Hill Overall, the sandbox idea was an excellent idea for those who like to create adventures.

While designed for novice or intermediate players, this allows Dungeon Masters just starting out to see how encounters were built. All one has to do is add a plot and link it. There was plenty of room to work with, and a creative Dungeon Master could add or subtract to L1 as they see fit.

There are plenty of encounters to choose from through the text of The Secret of Bone Hill. Remember, this is more of a mini-setting than an adventure. Another issue is the town of Restenford has a large military garrison, but there are an outstanding number of encounters listed in the small area around the town.

One must believe that these must be optional encounters for travel to and from Restenford, as no military garrison would let that many evil creatures set up lairs nearby. Along with these issues, the Secret of Bone Hill has poor artwork. Rumor is that Erol Otus intentionally botched the back cover. The interior art has many maps, and the few illustrations seem to not match any text near them. The internal shakeup that led to the firing of Gary Gygax in caused a delay.

Lakofka has issues with this release, as the final manuscript he sent vanished. In addition to speaking on the L-series on Dragonsfoot, Lakofka also released L4: Devilspawn on Dragonsfoot for free in L4 was followed up with L5 in L5 is set in the town of Kroten in the Lendore Isles, but is split up among three books. The first is a campaign guide, the second an adventure book, the third a campaign companion. Also available is a map pack for L5.

All are on Dragonsfoot, and Lakofka is contemplating more L-series modules in the future. All the L5 titles are also available for free on Dragonsfoot.

Final Take on Bone Hill All in all, if you like to play in a sandbox, this module is a must-have. Anyone who enjoys to make their own story from pieces will love it.

The design is perfect for creating your own hooks and encounters. Many prefer this style, however many publishers overlook this demographic. If you like everything already done, pick-up-and-play style, stay far away from Secret of Bone Hill. You will feel lost, and at times, overburdened. This will teach you the lesson of always pre-reading the module. L1: The Secret of Bone Hill is available on dmsguild. Fortunately, it is available as a print-on-demand title for those who like holding the actual module.

Unfortunately for collectors, these reprints are affecting the value of originals.
