Finding the Heart – Volume I of the Heart of the Righteous Adventure Path
In 2005, a group of fans got together with the express purpose of producing a new adventure for Dragonlance. The Adventure Portal Design Team worked for over a year to put the adventure together. However, real life reared its twelve ugly heads and the adventure was never completed. For nearly three years it has sat on the hard drives of several stalwart individuals who kept the project alive but never could bring it to fruition. Recently I took a fresh look at the adventure and realized that it wasn’t doing any good hanging around on my hard drive, so I made the decision to break the adventure up into several adventures and make an adventure path out of them. I got motivated and managed to motivate several of the old Adventure Portal Design Team members and together we have knocked out this first volume in the Heart of the Righteous Adventure Path. Without further delay I give you Finding the Heart.
