  1. I have a question. Where would you place the 3e modules in grey hawk? Sunless citadel, forge of fury, etc. I know a DM can place them anywhere but I wanted advice on where they would be best suited in the flanaess.

    1. I’m not familiar with all the modules as I’m more of a low – mid level gamer. My personal campaign is set in Ratik (hit the Borderland of Adventure link above for session summaries). I’ve used Sunless Citadel and Forge of Fury in my campaign and they worked very well in the campaign.

      (I like Ratik because not a lot has been written about it, which means making it your own is so much easier!)

      Hope that helps.

  2. I love the articles and Raging Swans products are ridiculously helpful (and the modules fit easily into Golarian!)

    I do have one request; put the most recent articles at the top or just under the main headline. If you don’t it won’t change my habitual reading of the articles, but I have to scroll through everything I have already read each and every time.

    Again, it is a small complaint and I am a big fan of the products and articles, keep em coming!

    1. Thanks for the idea, Chuck. I have a section of the sidebar dedicated to Most Recent Posts, but it’s quite close to the bottom. I’l move it further up towards the top. Hopefully, that will sort your problem!

  3. How about an article on NPC processes. e.g. The PC’s have,deservedly or not, murdered a townsfolk. How does a village investigate that, how does a large city? How are taxes collected? How is the bureaucracy run. If players empty out the haunted orphanage, can they take it over? Etc.
