‘The Hermit’s Road’ is a 12 page adventure based in the world first introduced in Titansgrave: The ashes of Vakana. The adventure is designed for characters of level 2 to 4.
In ‘The Hermit’s Road’, players are sent to investigate the existence of purported pre-Cataclysm ruins on the outskirts of the City-State of Karros. Here they discover more than they bargained for, as the ruins hide a secret more valuable than gold or jewels…. ohh that sounds ominous doesnt it.
The Hermits Road, is a pretty standard and bland dungeon crawler in itself. It’s an easy introduction for players into the world of Titansgrave, without players having knowledge of the show hosted by Wil Wheaton or the story line of ‘The ashes of Valkana’.
To myself, i see it to be a stepping stone into your own adventures in the world of Titansgrave. It offers alot of adventure hooks, both at the start of the adventure and at the end of it.
Personally, I can see myself setting up a story line that could involve Mr. Voss (a character from The ashes of Valkana book and show) or possibly Skot Dooling, the Golem Master of Karros (who’s mentioned in The ashes of Valkana book), or possibly another character.
The adventure also introduces a new character, that could be used as a reacurring character in future adventures. Depending on the tone of your adventure, he could be portrayed in a number of interesting ways.
The adventure introduces about 3 new adversarys, one of which I think is a pretty cool concept, if not a little over powered for a starting group to face off against.
The Hermit’s Road, cost me about $4. $4 dollar for a 12 page adventure, is it worth it? If I’m being honest, personally I would say ‘Yes’, I’m a bit of a fan boy but… It is a bit pricey and it’s not a must have.
On the other hand it does offer you a start to your own adventurings without being constrained by The ashes of Valkana storyline. It offers a new character, new baddies to fight, a little bit of fluff, and a new location.
All in all, It’s a nice addition to the Titansgrave range, which has been a bit lacking thus far. I only assume it’s because Green Ronin were waiting to see what the plot was for season 2 of Titansgrave before releasing any additional content.
Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.
