Index of Adventures in Knockspell & Fight On! Magazines, Part Two

This is part two of an index of Knockspell and Fight On! magazine adventures. The first part was Knockspell, and Fight On! follows here below. These aren't reviews of course, they're just a resource list. Anyone play any of these? Please feel free to comment with corrections or information, I wanted to keep it brief but helpful.

Thanks for posting this.

My players have made several forays into Fight On's "Darkness Beneath" mega-dungeon. They have ventured into the Upper Caves (FO! #2) and the Warrens of the Troglodytes (FO! #5). We've had a blast in these dungeons. For a tast of one of the sessions see here:

As the designer of Nature's Nasty Node, let me say that it is meant to be a simple Wilderness Encounter/Mini-Adventure rather than a Dungeon Crawl (calithena emailed me at the last minute and said he needed a wilderness adventure for the issue)

Melan said...

#4 also has The Spring Temple of Ai by yours truly. :) It was an adventure-heavy issue.
