The Savage Island – Free Adventure

Shipwrecked on an unknown island filled with strange and deadly creatures and a surprising past, the characters must either escape, learn to survive or become just another victim of The Savage Island.

The Savage Island is an introductory 1st level adventure for 3rd ed. OGL type games such as D&D. It is designed as a sandbox adventure where the players can explore the island in their own way. There are two main ways off the island plus a third that the GM can use to bring the adventure quickly to a close.

A lot of background is provided on the island’s inhabitants and history with lots and lots of possibilities for expansion. I’m planning to do “Return to The Savage Island” and “Under The Savage Island” adventures in the future but in the meantime, it is very easy for any GM to adapt and enlarge.

This is the 1st draft of the adventure so it no doubt contains some errors and omissions. The draft nature of this publication is reflected in the basic artwork and layout as well. Our plan is to publish this more fully in the future and we would love to hear any feedback you have on the module.

The adventure uses both Forest Walkers and Quorakons from our figure range as monsters. Four of the pre-generated characters supplied in the adventure are based on our Heros or Villains pack.

  1. Excellent Stuff!!

    Brilliant starter adventure, especially for new players! Ship-wrecking the party on island is an excellent way of getting players to think – and it’s open ended so they can’t really go wrong.

    I took your adventure and adapted for use in the Forgotten Realms setting. For the island, I used “Traitors Island” in the sea of fallen stars. I also added about 5 pages of “player text”, describing each area and expanding on a some details.

    Great work! Keep it coming!!!

  2. Cool, I’m just getting ready to start an Iron Heroes campaign and thought shipwrecking them on an island would be a good start, googled for ‘dnd island adventure’ and found just what I was looking for 🙂
