The Adventure This article is spoiler free, even though I am sharing some exciting tidbits. I want to begin by thanking Wizards of the Coast for listening to feedback. This adventure is no exception. The players are given a lot more choice.

My apologies for the interrupted blog posts; the last three weeks have been very busy for me. Time for blogging has been in short supply lately! It was a very successful program for Wizards of the Coast and brought many thousands of gamers out every week.

While I came up with the storyline, some of the big elements had already been settled on before I began work on the adventure. So, I was given the marching orders to create an Encounters season that was more of a ghost story than a dungeon crawl, something that revolved on the story of Evard.

Toward the end of 3rd Edition, the character had emerged a bit more in the lore that was developed around the school of shadow magic, and Evard finally showed up as something more than just a name—the creator of the school of shadow magic, a dark, sardonic personality who dabbled with sinister magic and mocked those who disapproved of his studies.

That was tough for me, since my design taste runs a lot more toward sandbox-style adventures where people can engage whatever story thread they find and follow it as long as they want.

So, I decided to make it the most flavorful and suspenseful linear narrative I could manage. Going by what I saw of people writing up their Encounters season responses, my approach seemed to work well enough. Dark Legacy of Evard was well received, and people seemed to really groove on the spooky setting and the old story of Evard and Vontarin.

Based on the number of people participating in the Encounters program, Dark Legacy was probably the most widely-played of my adventures since Forge of Fury. Next Week: Thornkeep, my first non-WotC adventure! Posted by.

Board games in this condition may be played but show little to dsrk wear. I used to play the Pathfinder Society games quite a bit. Maybe it was because players knew there was a freedom from having consequences follow them after a session. Lahrs — I can whip up an alternate set of level 3 pregen cards toward the middle of the week. While the characters are visiting the wise woman, a pack of wolves attacks. Seeing two full seasons did illustrate some big differences in the module designs.
