I’ve been busy this Easter working on Whispers of the Dark Daeva, converting the adventure from Pathfinder to 5e. This has involved rebuilding most of the NPC and monster adversaries from scratch and also remembering which skills exist in both editions, which have different names, and which need replacing with an ability check! The first draft is done – the next stage will be incorporating learnings and feedback on the story structure and roleplaying encounters from the Pathfinder playtesting.
Last Monday I ran a Pathfinder playtest session for our Monday night group which was very useful, and gave me plenty to think about in terms of making the adventure more enjoyable. We got through about half the adventure in a single 2.5 hour session, so should finish it next time we meet in April. I also had some very useful feedback from veteran GM Paul Baalham on the scenario, and am eagerly awaiting playtest reports from several other groups.
Once this is all in I’ll incorporate the relevant feedback into both versions of the adventure and get a revised 5e draft ready for playtesting. If you’re interested in running the 5e version in late April/May for your gaming group and giving me playtest feedback, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
