Swamp of the Lost

NW-DL88UE8IC

Brave the "Swamp of the Lost" in this short adventure, where you're hired to rescue a merchant gone astray.

Simple and quick, this is my first attempt at the foundry. I'm always going back to improve this first attempt. So it may change for the better in the future. It is intended to be for solo characters, although several will work too. It has many battles some of which can be avoided.

This is version 2.9

    I played with my level 60 DC. I thought this was a really nice quest. The haunted effects were very well done. My only request would be a few more clues about Swamplight Manor and how it came to be haunted, just as a reward for hunting around.

    I have some detailed notes below:

    -the Sembia reference in the first conversation is nice
    -sometimes the road is given as “Hillman” and other times (on the map) as “Hillman’s”

    Hillman’s Road
    -the map is nicely detailed
    -it seems odd that there aren’t any clouds or stars in the sky at all

    Swamp of the Lost:
    -the large cypress trees are now partially transparent from one of the patches, so you may want to switch those out.
    -the branches from the tree behind the manor house are clipping through it pretty severely. It looks rather odd. You may want to switch to a taller tree.

    Swamplight Manor:
    -the haunted house effects are really well done
    -in the kitchen in the line about the potatoes, certain is misspelled “certian”
    -in Jarrod’s note: you may want to add “Hells” after “nine”, not sure how many players would get the reference. “Want’s to eat me” should be “wants to eat me”. “Someones nightmare” should be “someone’s nightmare”. In the note he refers to Alrica as his cousin, I thought he was her brother?

    Swamp Escape:
    -it seems strange that Sammy changed colors since the last time I saw him. Was he that muddy from the swamp?

    Oh, Thank you so much for playing my first foundry.

    With the help of my big sis, I fixed all the typos you found in this posting as well as the graphic problems except for the trees...
    I looked at them and I honestly couldn't find where they are see through. I have also included an item that explains some of what has transpired in the house. You will have to look for it.:)

    Thanks again for playing Swamp of the Lost.

    Now version 3.0

    Hey all
    Just finished doing some touch ups, I renamed a lot of the NPC's and actors to avoid the generics they were. I also added a little bit more costume customizeation on the key players so they stand out better. I fixed the sky over Hillman's Road, as well as added a little lore in the basement, that will explain a little more about what's been going on.

    Thanks

    Now Version 3.1

    Loved the quest! I love haunted house stories!
    The manor map was awesome, nice mood in there. that was my favorite map.
    it reminds me of my first foundry too, I also did a haunted house quest, I see we both enjoy ghost stories. XD

    I just played through the mission. I really liked it! Nice and simple, but good flavor. I liked the many interact-able points that really gave a feel of being in a haunted house. Having the enemies patrol the swamp helped avoid the "static" feel that many foundries get.

    Quit suggestion: Once you leave the cellar and re-enter the swamp: The quest still says "Escape into the cellar". I figure you'll want to change that to match the actual quest objective, which appears to be getting to the horse and leaving the swamp.

    Just finished - nice job! I like swamp environments, and the mansion had a lot of items to check out. The spider patrolling over the respawn circle was a nice touch. Combat was reasonable (so many foundry missions are too hard for my poorly-geared solo 68 TR.
