View Full Version : Forthcoming Adventures

So, it looks like Wizards are producing a lot more adventures (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/dndlist&brand=All&year=All&type=Adventures) this year and last than previously, which suggests to me that they may be refocusing their efforts away from Rulebooks and onto Adventures (probably as a prelude and wind up to the dreaded fourth edition). I was rather looking forward to this, as I am getting pretty bored of the proliferation of Rulebooks. However, when I took the time to read through the previews for Scourge of the Howling Horde (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20061115a) and Barrow of the Forgotten King (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20070216a) I was left with a rather lacklustre impression; I just didn't feel the writing was up to much, nor, indeed, the concepts that engaging.
Now, I'm not a big purchaser of 3.x in general, so I was wondering whether people had any opinions on how these compared to the other adventures produced by Wizards and available for sale. I mean, I am rather looking forward to titles such as Anauroch: The Sundering of the World (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/fracc/978078694), Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/dndacc/109257200), Expedition to Undermountain (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/fracc/957327200) and Expedition to the Demonweb Pits (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/dndacc/955687200), but I am starting to wonder whether I might be better served by spending my cash on third party adventures. Any opinions?
