Hi Everyone - great feedback, I really appreciate it.  I wanted to let everyone know that I decided to go with Charnel Crypt of the Sightless Serpent.  I wanted to save Rats for the campaign and I also wanted to give them a chance to play characters higher than 1st level.  I really like the scenario. I'm using the PCs from the Rogues Gallery II PDF - and they are great.  Running it tonight in a couple of hours.  If we don't finish it all it isn't a big deal it was just a preference. We can always get together and finish next weekend.  I was just aiming for a single session even though I rarely can do it.

Thanks to all!  Great suggestions and some of them were on my short list of potentials.  I have the old and new Rats in the Walls and had been looking at them as well as Taken from Dunwich - which I've always wanted to run.  I'm going to read over them all and go with one of those.

Hi everyone -

I was hoping to solicit the help of more the knowledgable members.  A few of my regular players decided to give Hyperborea a try in December.  We had a blast and now are planning a campaign.  This weekend we are having a practice session - basically a game to help learn the rules using pre-generated characters.  I have new 3 players coming that have not played AS&SH to join 2 that have.  

What scenario - either an official AS&SH adventure or something classic AD&D, or OSR - would you suggest that would give the feel of the setting and a taste of the combat rules?  Our session will probably last 6 hours. It could span two session but it would be better if it lasted just one.  I'd like to make an impression on the new players to get them as fired up as the guys that played in December.  The only scenario I've run is the Black Moss Hag adventure found in the rulebook.  Any suggestions would be great.  Thanks!

Hi, I'm Matt. I've been lurking here for a while and thought I'd finally introduce myself.  I've been playing RPGs since way back and discovered Hyberborea in 2013.  I loved the art work so much I ended up backing all the kickstarters- but never played the game until this past December!  I can't believe that I let the game sit on my shelf so long.  What a great game. My game group is now gearing up for a campaign.  I've already learned some great stuff on this board and I'm sure it will be a great resource while running the campaign.
