Free Role Playing Game Supplement Review: F3 – Adventure in Skull Pass

F3 – Adventure in Skull Pass is a free role playing game supplement published by Adventures in Filbar. This adventure is primarily intended for use with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and AD&D 2nd Edition game. It is the third in the F series and could therefore follow on from the previous adventure, F2 – Crypt of Kendall Furfoot. The players have to clear out a cavern complex that is being used as a base by caravan raiders in order to safeguard a trade route.

F3 - Adventure in Skull PassThis is a fifteen page PDF which lacks bookmarks. One page is the front cover with the Adventures in Filbar logo, two pages are Players and DM’s Background, around one and a third pages are on the two major NPCs, friend and foe, from the adventure, as well as brief details on the townspeople (the adventure is set near to and based from the town of Feastelburg, which is covered in more detailed in its own supplement, FT – Feastelburg) and two thirds of a page cover the start of the adventure. About seven and a third pages cover the cavern complex that is inhabited by ogre-led goblins who have been raiding trade caravans and around two thirds of a page cover concluding the adventure and three adventure hooks, all related to the primary enemy, with one possibility being that he escapes to become a more dangerous foe. One page has two stock images intended to illustrate parts of the adventure and another page has two maps, one of the local area and one of the cavern complex.

The PDF lacks bookmarks which, whilst not really essential for a supplement of this length, would have been a nice extra. The text maintains a single column format with a few minor errors noticed. The maps and stock illustrations do the job they are intended to do, but not much more than that.

The adventure itself is a fairly simple, albeit potentially dangerous, dungeon crawl. Players will need to use a bit of intelligence when they assault the complex; a full-frontal attack will probably be fatal. Although set in Filbar, it could easily be dropped, perhaps with some minor modifications, on a trade route on the outskirts of a country in another setting. Similarly, it could also be adapted easily to other Old School Revival game systems and, with a bit more work, to more modern ones such as Pathfinder. F3 – Adventure in Skull Pass is another nice, short adventure, and it’s free, so click here to get it.
