Review: "Force of Nature” by Mark A. Jindra

This review covers the second of the free “Original Adventures” series that Wizards of the Coast distributed to support D&D 3.5. Mark A. Jindra's Force of Nature is intended for four 18th-level characters, and requires the three D&D core rulebooks (Player's Handbook, Dungeon Masters Guide, and Monster Manual) or the Pathfinder Core Rules and Bestiary. Jindra also recommends having four additional supplements on hand.  Although this module was originally free, the re-release on DriveThruRPG costs $0.99.

Review: “The Burning Plague” by Miguel Duran

To support D&D 3.5, Wizards of the Coast released a free series of short “Original Adventures” through their website.  The series was launched in early 2004 with Miguel Duran's The Burning Plague, designed to be playable with just the Player's Handbook and suitable for four to six 1st-level adventurers.  It's since been re-released through DriveThruRPG and can be purchased for $0.99.
