The biggest flaw of the Reavers of Harkenwold adventure on the map side is that there are no maps at all for the last 4 battles, the grand finale, harkennwold plays in the right half of a keep. I started by running these characters through some unconnected Living Forgotten Realms adventures, so they were already level 3 when the adventure started.
What makes RoH so good is how it was written as a mini-sandbox. I ran the game using MapTool online for a party of three PCs. The back story dungeon information about all of the people and places harkenwpld really well presented, and I think DMs can find a lot to make use of. It is presented in two separate magazine-type books. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Free a region of innocents from an evil outside army that has taken over. How long that will take will depend on how much roleplaying the DM and the players like, but if you count about 2 combats per session you’d end up with about 10 sessions, which is a lot of adventure.
Not only is it non-linear, but there is room to drop in side-quests or xungeons other ideas on might have to fill it out for your group. I have some suggestions for improving the fun of the Giant Frogs. Modify it, though, and it can be okay.
