For all the other DMs out there, I thought I might set up a brief forum just to talk about canned adventures from Dungeon each of us is planning to use, so that we don't step on each other's toes (and campaigns).

For FR, I would like to use Storm Tower and Menace of the Icy Spire at early levels, and Hidden Destinies at mid-heroic. Haven't looked much beyond level 5 yet.

Mike, I do you have plans after the current adventure? Viktor, are you planning to use any adventures not outlined in the PoL wiki? Josh, any plans? Em, anything beyond the SoW path? Gary?

I just thought that we could all share which ones we are planning to use, so that none of us a) use an adventure another DM is using, or b) read through them, since that will spoil much of the fun. =)

I might use source information and possibly some adventure ideas from the upcoming as yet unpublished books that are set in the Nentir Vale. So far that includes ones such as Hammerfast, and the HS series (The Slaying Stone, Orcs of Stonefang Pass, etc.). I'm more likely to just use those settings though, since by the time they come out the PoL PC's will be higher level (level 2 is imminent actually). Can't say without seeing them.

Apart from that, I might be taking stuff out of major source books like Open Grave, etc, but that's just for ideas or NPC's or monsters, not adventures.

Ok. I think Storm Tower is set in Nentir Vale (though if I use it I will adapt it for FR, obviously), but that is a lev 2-3 adventure, so PoL will probably pass it by.

I plan to make all my own adventures. At most I'd be using maps from the online map galleries or monsters from the compendium, but those don't spoil plots or anything, so I'm probably okay.

I don't know what Storm Tower is, never saw it. I'm more interested in the new material coming out that includes settings, history, as well as adventures. Hammerfast, as well as the HS series will have a lot of background that I'm looking for.

I might use future adventures they set in eberron, but I haven't really looked at any generic ones to decide if I will use them. I am basically set through level 5 right now, anyways.

In addition to the Scales of War Adventure Path, I have borrowed from other published adventures: "Ziggurat Beyond Time" from Dungeon 159, "Danger at the White Lotus Academy" from Dungeon 165, and "Feywild Lair" from Draconomicon, Chromatic Dragons.

There's a new adventure on insider called "Haruuc's Tomb: A Novel Adventure". It's apparently an adaptation from an Eberron novel, so Josh might be interested in using it.

A new chaos shard adventure was released today in dungeon 176 ("Dead by Dawn"). I plan to use it or parts of it in my PoL campaign. Wanted to give you guys a head's up to avoid it.

I was just thinking... while I don't plan to use Dungeon adventures, it's possible I might borrow the mini-delves or encounters included in books like Draconomicon, Open Grave or Underdark as part of a larger adventure I create myself. It's way too early for me to be more specific than that at this point, but I'll post here if I do use any of that stuff.

I'm glad you mentioned that Gary. I've looked through the first paragraph of some of those. I've mostly looked at Open Grave for PoL as you might imagine and there's just one adventure there I was planning on using.

Open Grave: "Battlefield Downs" (part of Nerath Empire history)

I'll steer clear of that one, then. :)

There's an Eberron adventure called "Hearts of the Forbidden Forge" in Dungeon 167, for level 7 characters.

I never see these posts down here until much later...

If I pull from adventures (after the current one), it'll mostly be for maps and minor story elements - I'll likely be creating at least the next few levels (through level 10) from scratch.

Josh, there's another Eberron background article in Dungeon 178 about who knows what.
