Stonepick Crossing

Just finished the layout for Advanced Adventures #22: Stonepick Crossing and have gotten the art direction together. This one's our first 1st-3rd level adventure. You'd think that having 20+ adventures would mean that there would be several 1-3'ers, but I tend to avoid them unless I think they have a unique feel about them. There are a lot of 1-3 level adventures out there and those levels are the easiest for a GM to create, so I haven't much felt the need to do introductory adventures. Below's a bit about the unique little town built atop an old damn.

The tiny thorp of Stonepick Crossing sits on top of an old dwarven dam holding. The dam was built some 500 years ago, ending a long war between a clan of dwarves and a clan of goblins that infested a highly-defensible cave complex. Recognizing the futility of direct assault, the dwarves built the dam to flood the goblin caves, flushing the foul creatures out of their caves and into the slaughter of honest combat. Now 500 years later, the dwarves have moved on and a small thorp has sprung up. The town is named for the dwarven clan leader who waged war against the goblins, Eltoren Stonepick. Near the protected town atop its dam, farmers till the soil around the lake created by the construction.
