About the adventure

The Nine of Himdal is an 8-12 hour adventure for level 5 up to level 15 party's in the DnD 5e system that I wrote and designed myself. It balances the three pillars of adventure so that every group can find their preferred taste. So feel free to tell me which pillar you personally like to focus on as a player: Exploration, Combat or Social Interaction and we'll get that sorted out! The Nine of Himdal is a story that unfolds as the player take actions, talk with NPC's, explore, … It's never twice the same and you control the pace, flow and experience. Here's a sneak peak: Upon their travels our mighty worthy warriors stumble upon a small village. A signpost reveals it's name to be Himdal. Arriving into town they see Half-Orcs plowing the field, children playing in the streets and a lonely fisherman's boat soothingly rocking to the motion of the ocean. An old temple stands on an island connected by a bridge to the rest of the village. As the smell of mead and fresh stew fills the evening air and the sunset hits the edge of the world. It seems that this village, Himdal, might be the perfect place for a rest. But while our adventurers lay down to rest for the night, they will soon find out that while all seems calm and steady not all share their preference for peace. While they rest, others are restless. Working inexhaustibly to turn this world upside down.
