Temple of the Ghoul

Rended Press is proud to announce its first complete adventure module, Temple of the Ghoul:



Something has been pillaging farms and leaving no living thing behind. Merchants have disappeared on the roads and the Tinker now refuses to make his circuit. All of this trouble started when a party of adventurers went to investigate the old temple on the hill. Five adventurers went up the hill to Lilanora’s temple and never returned. Who will follow those foolhardy five and discover what danger lies beneath the temple ruins?

Temple of the Ghoul is a FREE adventure module; written specifically to be compatible with OSRIC, it is easily convertible to Original Edition or Advanced Edition rule sets of the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.  Designed for low-level characters and available in both hi-res and lo-res versions, it is easily dropped into any beginner-level fantasy roleplaying campaign.  Please download and enjoy!

I'm stoked with how this turned out. You did a fantastic job of editing and layout. Also dredged up fantastic art. Great job!

Great job, thanks for creating and compiling this one into such a terrific-looking PDF! I hope to see more from you!

I've tried twice over a couple of days to download the hi-res version, only to have the download grind to a halt at around 75%. Very frustrating. I'll leave it for another couple of days and then try again. :(

David:

The file is on my campus ftp site. Of course, it downloads fine for me when I am in my office, but I just downloaded it from home on a slow DSL connection, and it was just fine. I'd think it was either your connection or your ISP more than it is the server. Try again in a few days, and if it doesn't work, send me an email (my email addy is on the About page) and I can send you the hi-res version via email.

Successfully downloaded! I haven't read it yet, but my initial reaction is that it looks good. The only nitpick I'd give is that I think it would look better if the text was justified. Looking forward to reading it, thanks Matthew.

Thank you for making this available. I just downloaded the module and it looks great. I can't wait to give it a proper reading.

Too bad I don't have your layout skills, Mr. Lost Staves of Maurath! Your modules are just so much juicy goodness.

btw: Although I'm taking a break from RPGs at the moment, next time I gather up a game, you're more than welcome to join (they are generally one or two night sessions).

I might have mentioned this to you before, I can't remember. :)

About to DL this, but first, one word on the hi-res download issues, Matt--Torrent.
;-)
Let me know if you need me to make a torrent for you.

By the way, you're not on Facebook, are you?

@Rob:

There's no need for a torrent. It's only 15 MBs.

And no, I'm not on Facebook.

It's awesome to see a temple dungeon that actually looks like a temple.
