NDT was an interesting mash-up of different components.

Mechanically it used Sage Kobold's Dungeon World for the most part and Pelgrane Press's Hillfolk for early character creation and dramatic scenes, and the motive was to playtest both systems.

The game was based on the original TSR UK module, B10 Night's Dark Terror, itself set in the abandoned, official D&D campaign setting, Mystara.

It ran with 6-7 players during its time, over a period of two and half years. (At the start the GM anticipated it would take two years, so not too far off.)

There were 3269 game posts by the end, meaning the average post-rate was around 4/day. Average words per post was around 125, which extrapolates to around 408,625 words in total. Not far shy of The Lord of the Rings!

Here the GM, nemarsde will answer any of your questions about this completed DreamLyrics message game.

The original TSR UK adventure module, B10: Night's Dark Terror, is now available as a PDF from the DMs Guild.

Although it would easy enough to adapt to D&D 5th Edition system-wise, I think it would play similar to Lost Mine of Phandelver in the D&D 5th Ed Starter Set.

The setting would take more work. Dymrak Forest is darker, less civilised than the region in Lost Mine of Phandelver, but it might be a good match for the High Forest if you want to stick to the Forgotten Realms.

Still, by the time you've converted all the encounters and changed all the names, how much of the original adventure do you have left? You might as well just write your own at that point. wink

Then again, D&D Basic is also available from the DMs Guild, if you want to go old school and adapt nothing. elvis
