Reference List of DA adventures

Postby Zapp » Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:16 am

I browsed http://greenronin.com/dragon_age/ but couldn't find a quick overview of adventures available for the game.

So I decided I should start one - feel free to suggest additions and corrections. I also thought it would be valuable to link to fan-made adventures, since the list would be so short otherwise.

Official Campaigns
none


Official Adventures
An Arl's Ransom - the free Quick Start Guide
The players are to escort a nobleman's children (introductory adventure).

A Dalish Curse - Games Master's Guide (Box Set 1)
Something threatens the village of Vintiver (introductory adventure).

A Bann Too Many - Game Master's Kit
The players are asked to stop a bandit threat (a good follow-up to Dalish Curse).

Amber Rage - Blood in Ferelden
A disease is turning local villagers into mindless savages (level 1-2)

Where Eagles Lair - Blood in Ferelden
Chasing the kidnappers of a nobleman's daughter brings the players to the Frostback Mountains (level 3-4)

A Fragile Web - Blood in Ferelden
Intrigue and politics in Denerim (level 4-5)

The Autumn Falls - Games Master's Guide (Box Set 2)
Try your luck in the Grand Tourney of the Free Marches’ legendary Contest of Arms (level 5-7)

Fan-made contributions
Bound In Stone - Forum thread
"in a similar vein to the Dalish Curse - shorter and a bit less involved, but a good intro adventure"

At Basilisk Fort - Forum thread
The deed to a small keep falls into the hands of the players (intro adventure).

Festival of Wolves - Forum thread
Getting stuff sold at a festival turns out to be harder than you'd think (low? level)

Secret of Eastvale - Forum thread
A confrontation with a Witch of the Korcari Wilds (low? level)

Oleander Maw - Forum thread
An Elf begs you for help (level 1-2)

Of course there is and thanks.

I should make it clear I depend on you all to list fan-made scenarios from the forums.

There is a subset of fan created adventures on Jekias' GM page
http://www.users.on.net/~jekias/GM.htm

Also, the Oleander Maw was redone with a newer layout and was announced on the Dragon Age Oracle blog last year, although there are 2 links on Jekias' page as well.

In a Fragile Web, it actually states a better order is to begin with chantry of the stilled tongue, let players gain bann Nicosia as a backer, and then go from there.

Vintiver is the home base for my party. They've actually taken over the old Fuldor Farm and are building a new manor on the property. So it'd be cool to have high-res maps for that area.

Some key points of our story also happen in the deep roads below the Lost Keep, so it might be cool to have a map of the exterior there too.

I am by no means a pro or anything, But here is the fuldor Farm map. I have two versions, one with the buildings and one without, Both currently have no trees on them (I forgots them) but are rather large and good for VTT game play.
I also have the map mentioned in the quickstart Guide and it may be huge as I was a moron and set the DPI to 300 rather than 150.

How hard is it (i know very little about image editing) would it be to put a scale grid on that for use with 28mm figures?

Not hard, I just have to figure out the scale for the map compared to the figure. I should have those by tomarrowish?

Edit: What scale would you want it in? 1 square =2 yards? 1 yard?

Also Vintiver map:http://s159.photobucket.com/albums/t153/Spazthoma_2007/Dragon%20age%20maps/?action=view&current=VintiverHiRes.png


Again these maps are huge (Vintiver map is like 13 mb.)

Uh, so, what am I doing wrong here? Because these maps all appear to be exceptionally tiny.

Wooh! Now they're working. No idea what was wrong before. It was like I was just getting thumbnails with no option to enlarge. Weird.

Given that the three adventures from Blood in Ferelden can be ran as a single campaign with an overarching story arc you might want to include BIF as an official campaign too.

It isn't marketed as one.

(And I am glad it isn't, since for me a campaign means more than a string of loosely connected adventures. When you or I run a bunch of adventures using the same PCs for the same ruleset that is commonly called a "campaign", but for me one defining characteristic of a professional commercial adventure campaign is that its chapters should not be stand-alone.

They might be adventure-length, but there should be some degree of difficulty running them separate from the rest or there is nothing to indicate that they are integrated into a greater whole. Btw, that is why a campaign should not be written by several authors working in parallel - or by authors that aren't even aware it is part of a campaign they're writing...

But I digress.)

An example of a true campaign would be Savage Tidings for 3.5 12 chapters which can be run as a single adventure or all together. I have run up to chapter 5 on this.

Hi,
I don't want to be a necromancer but I also don't want to make a totally new Post because of this.
I am the GM of a group of new players, they haven't grasped the concept of role playing yet and it's also my first time being the GM. (Though I guess that I make something right, they like to play) They are still lvl 1 (almost finished the Arls Ransom), I wanted to take a look at "At Basilik Fort" because it sounds very interesting but I can't open it or access it.
I tried different links but all just said that it has problems loading the page. (other adventures and campaigns work just fine)
Does anyone has an idea where to get it from?
