They conquered and pillaged, but they also brought technology and civilization along with their conquest. But most of the battles do nothing for the plot of the story, so it takes a long time in real-world time for the story to go anywhere.

They use a good mix of opponents, sometimes putting enemies the group fought before together with new ones, which is a good design.

But it does require some preparation, an added dose of roleplaying, and creating of the missing maps. It mixes the surprise of monsters with new abilities with the recognition of old foes.

If you plan to play this adventure as a PC and you want to be surprised, I suggest you stop reading now. I believe I used a Moonshae Isles adventure, followed by a home-brew that I wrote as a follow-up to that one, followed by adventures in Waterdeep, Cormyr and Aglarond.

Book 1 contains the background material and the allies-gathering, while book 2 has the big battle and the keep. In spite of that paperback you might not need, the Kit is still good value, because it comes not only with the adventure in two booklets and three double-sided maps, but also with all the tokens you would need to run the game, player characters as well as all monsters. As I said before, with some good DMing, Reavers of Harkenwold could be one of the best adventures for 4th edition.

The adventure does not tell you how to scale the encounters down in difficulty, or in fact that they are designed for 5 players. Second, allow other characters who hit the Giant Frog to choose to grant the swallowed creature a saving throw instead of dealing damage to the Giant Frog imagine that they punch the Frog in the gut and cause him to lose his swallowed prey.

The party retreated the first time and got a Woodsinger Elf to help them the second time I made up a simple companion character E4: I encountered them as a player last year and wrote about the experience in this blog post. The order that they ran into the encounters was: The first begins with a thorough overview of the plot of the adventure in both a super-brief format here are the three or four major points of the plot as well as a longer format for book 1 that goes over the flow of that section.
