Retribution

By on 11 March 2010

I was asked if I could write a short review for Creighton Broadhurst’s first scenario under his Raging Swan flag. I was happy to oblige and here it is:

Retribution is a wintry scenario that makes full use of the weather to create a claustrophobic and gritty introduction. This is followed by an excellent middle, with something for every party as it is full of investigation, roleplaying, and combat, before building to a worthy climax. Overall, it is an excellent scenario that can be slotted into any campaign and, with very little work, any roleplaying system.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
