I try to be prepared but sometimes players go in un- expected directions. Between this and being short on time, I've been using a lot of published material that I’ve reinterpreted or mashed up somehow. The other day I thought I'd look through my issues of Knockspell and Fight On! magazines to see what adventures they had to offer. Here’s a brief index starting with Knockspell Magazine below. I'll try to keep this updated, please feel free to correct any information or let me know if it needs attention. Anyone played any of these?
“Isles on an Emerald Sea” by Gabor Lux, p.23
No explicit level recommendation, but there are two 7 HD monsters as well as a 15 HD roc amongst a number of other creatures. “A bare realm…where castaways have died in lament… yet those who are courageous enough and cunning may win free - and even gain treasure in the bargain.”
“Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent” by by Jeffrey P. Talanian, p.32
For 4-6 characters of levels 4-7. A Hyperborean themed dungeon crawl adventure involving a giant serpent and a necromancer.
“Isles on an Emerald Sea, Part Two” by Gabor Lux, p.24

“The Font of Glee” by Jason Sholtis, p.20
