You came to Balic merely to attend a festival. You never wanted to be defend a praetor, fight off assassins, infiltrate the Veiled Alliance, be sent into the desert, visit a hermit, fight your way through the strange monsters that dwell in an abandoned underground temple, and find yourself in the middle of Balic's politics. That's your life on Athas
The Dark Festival is a 7- to 10-encounter D&D 4th Edition Heroic Tier Dark Sun adventure that's been designed so it can be scaled for 1st through 10th level adventurers. It's the first of a series of campaign modules that can be added to any Heroic Tier Dark SUn campaign. It's designed to be easy to run and easy to drop in to an existing campaign.
Each monster is presented in three variations, one for 1st level adventurers, one for 5th level, and one for 10th level. As a result, it's easy to tweak the monsters for any party from 1st to 10th level.
In addition, each piece of dialogue is presented in two columns: a carefully-written piece of dialogue that you can read as “boxed text,” and a detailed summary that you can customize according to your preferred speech patterns.
The full-color artwork and maps have been carefully color-corrected to print perfectly on color and black-and-white printers. The module includes maps that will print in standard one-inch squares on a normal piece of paper.
You can get this adventure at DriveThruRPG for a mere US $5. This will earn you two version of the 50-page PDF: one in portrait for easy printing, and one in landscape for easy use on a laptop while gaming.
