Remember how I was talking a few months ago about the lower cavern level that existed beneath the published module G1 Steading of the Hill Giant Chief ? Well, I went and wrote it up, complete with a map. In the process of doing research on it, I did come across a reference in Against the Giants, the Liberation of Geoff that basically wrote them off as not worth visiting, but I thought it was still more fun to put some interesting stuff in there. And if a party ever did make it there, they’d have the chance of uncovering some useful information about the later encounters with the drow, Lolth, and the Elder Elemental God, but nothing overly expository. Just enough to put another link in the chain, should they be in a position to puzzle out some of the intricacies of the whole series of adventures.
And I even managed to include a new monster!
I tried to make it as faithful to the original in terms of layout as I could, so you could just print it out and stick it in your copy of G1 and work with it. I’m very pleased with the way it worked out, and I hope you’ll like it, too.
