Thanks to my mapping partner for all the hard work.

My first ever project. It's very plug and play for any setting or area but I tried to at least have some lore about WHY and HOW it exists.

I'm sure my shortcomings will be pointed out, but I'm hopeful some of you will find it enjoyable.

“Hellgate Keep” (TSR9562) was an amazing adventure module but offered very few details about the Crypt of the Black Hand that dwelt beneath it.

This 5E supplement expands upon the history and lore of this locale along with providing all the maps, room descriptions, suggested encounters, and monster stat blocks you need to create a truly memorable dungeon crawl for your players.

While the Crypt is located within the High Forest in the Forgotten Realms® setting, it can be easily placed anywhere an underground dungeon is needed, in any setting.

This module is designed for use with at least four PCs levels 9 to 12 with at least one divine spell caster recommended. Monster stat blocks and DM overview maps are provided as close to the description of the encounter as possible for quick reference.

**Also available for Pathfinder**

Bought a copy!

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Anyone have any feedback on this? I am working on a new project and would like to get some constructive feedback. I'm sure there is plenty that could be better.

1. You need the DM's Guild logo on your cover as per the requirements

Eventually, someone will notice there's no logo on your title page and flag your book, which means it'll get hidden from public until DMG sends you an email telling you to add a logo, then they review it, then it eventually gets un-hidden. The logo image links and the rule is the last question on the above linked page.

2. Be sure that you have permission to use the Hellgate's Keep image. If not, you also might get flagged for copyright violation. This is a bit more tricky than forgetting the logo, if you get flagged here, then your account is flagged versus just a single product.

3. If you didn't do this as an appendix, I'd recommend flipping the map portrait to fill a full PDF page (and rotating room numbers so it's readable as normal).

4. Lastly, you can't resell this for Pathfinder. Once you upload your document, you transfer all rights (for written, not graphics) to DMG. You can't post this for free download or resell anywhere other than DMG. (regarding 'available for Pathfinder')

Overall, the text, formatting, etc. all look great. Also be sure to have the updated legal text (found at ).

Great job!
