I reckon it's that backstory that sparks ideas for the GM. Besides placing the adventure as written in context, it can sparks ideas as to how to develop things further.

Splatbook 143 – Various and Sundry XI

We’re a bit shorthanded in this episode, so we decided to randomize! Join DMs Glen and Brian as they deal with a few random topics. After answering some emails, they turn to matters at hand. First they talk about the various types of city adventures, they turn to a rarely used spell, Restore Strength, and then finally, break down the mysterious arachnoid, the Chitine.

Rule Zero – City Adventuring and Role-playing
Magic Fingers – Restore Strength
Snipe Hunt - Chitine

Victorious / Clockwork Mondays, Week 1
« Last post by DMMike on September 03, 2018, 04:45:24 PM »
I've started a new series on the victoriousrpg.com site, giving backgrounds and Victorious stats for various characters that were featured in vols. 1 and 2 of the "Capes and Clockwork" anthologies. Give 'em a look and maybe use them in your home chronicles. Heck, if you like them maybe pick up a copy of Capes & Clockwork and read the stories!

We were playing a home adaptation of "Keep On the Shadowfell", converting it from 4e to 5e. The party had gone through the entire first level of the Keep, or so they had thought. While looking at the map, they noticed that they had missed two rooms early on. Because I had to substitute monsters (including replacing the kruthik with a psychotic Spectator beholder), the party had advanced a little faster than I anticipated and were now level 3. No big deal. But that's where the fun began.

After realizing they left an unknown behind them at the beginning of the dungeon, they decided to go mop up before heading on down "lest anything bite us in the butt". Besides, on player mused out-of-character, that far back they're probably looking at level 1 monsters at best. They dispatched room 2, four goblins and a hobgoblin, with the anticipated ease. The only other room, room 4, was a goblin barracks. So they made a sneak check, saw the two goblins at the table... and missed the sniping attempt.

"Then a goblin in the dark
Gave a shout of 'BREE-YARK!"
And it turned into a Dungeon Blitz!
Dungeon Blitz!
Dungeon Blitz!"
(Apologies to The Damned and to Sweet)

Even playing Balgron the Fat by the book, the goblins nearly wiped up the dungeon with the party. Nobody seemed able to hit anything, but the goblins were spot on with ranged attacks, closing only when they had to. Several serious flesh-wounds later the party was finally victorious, if you can call it that. Their confident "mop-up" operation now has them limping back to town because it took all of their healing potions and spells to stay alive.

Overconfidence has killed more PCs than any ambush or trap!
Second Edition AD&D / Linroth Fleet-Hoof

One of the four minor centaur deities mentioned in Dragon Magazine #103, Linroth Fleet-Hoof is a deity of speed, traveling, and merchants. I drew some inspiration from nomadic steppe peoples for the write-up, as well as some elements from Greek mythology.

This sounds kind of like what Swords and Wizardry Complete turned out to be - a rework of the various OD&D books into a single more straightforward volume that resembles 1e lite.
